This is a book review of Oliver Twist, one of Charles Dickens seven novels.
The book is as I said about Oliver Twist, a poor little boy who neither their mother or father alive. Later in Oliver's life reveals a big secret that changes his life completely ...
At the beginning of the book he spends time in an orphanage, but moved when he is older to the poorhouse. I myself do not like the poorhouse. As an example, I can tell you about a day after three months in the workhouse.
Oliver and his friends were hungry, very hungry. One of the bigger boys said he would eat his bedfellow if he did not get more food. The boys believed him, his expression was horrific.
The lot fell on Oliver. In the evening when the boys had eaten broke out a dreadful nudging and winking around Oliver.
Oliver took courage and stood up to go against the guard to ask for more food.
- What on earth are you saying, his scamp! shouted the guard.
It was incredibly quiet in the hall.
- Excuse me sir, but I would like some more food, he replied hoppfullt.Jag think the following is pretty nasty, how you treated children before. Oliver was beaten and locked up for a week in a dark small room.
Since "donated" he and five pounds away because someone would want him. He finally had to come to an undertaker. They treated him just as bad if not worse than the poor house and Oliver escaped to England's capital, London. On the way he meets a boy the same age, called the "imposter", which took Oliver to his dwelling in central London.
Later, Oliver realized what the boys in the house were doing. They were thieves. The boys were pickpockets and burglars men.

When Oliver was out with the boys to steal wallets and handkerchiefs failed any of the other boys and they are gone away. Except Oliver, who becomes rigid with fear, but then runs in pure panic.
Oliver will be the one who gets the blame because he was the last. He was taken to the police station where the older man who was the victim, claiming he is not at all sure that it is precisely the boy. It is wonderful to see that there really were nice people too, even though they were not so many.
Oliver was then freed when all the police had to go on was a very uncertain witness. However, was the nail in the coffin beaten when the bookseller came inspringandes in the courtroom, he had seen the entire process. He could testify that Oliver was innocent.

Mr. Brownlow, the older gentleman in court, was a very loving man who with their other inherent took very good care of Olives. I think that was his salvation. Otherwise, Oliver had stopped as a poor man, not as a rich ...

Mr Brownlow and Rose Maylie are not the people who are most visible, but have had the greatest importance for the book once. They are in the 50-60 and 30-40 years of age. But since Oliver's life was not just a bed of roses, quite the contrary, there were the people who have had a negative influence. One such person is Fagin, one in my filthy evil man in the age of 50 who got into Oliver on the criminal path. But if Oliver had not met Fagin he could not have met Mr. Brownlow and Mrs. Maylie. So I think it was one of Charles ideas, to bring together all people to a spider web. Mr. Brownlow was of course such a good friend of Oliver's father.
Oliver came in contact with London's poverty at birth and had it with him later in life, though it went into periods.
Charles Dickens manages to write in such a way that it is exciting, funny, sad - yes everything you can imagine, at the same time! He writes as a TV series, the events in the book take place actually in parallel. He is also the phenomenon that you can not stop reading. Like when you watch TV and they break for commercials, it is always at its most exciting. But to return to Charles Dickens, I like his (and others') style, realistic. There is something magical about it. Especially the older realistic books are like history books to get a look at how it was before. Therefore, I think it's a classic, this is a book by an author who was the one who introduced the realistic writing.
Dickens writes in a he-she-it form which I appreciate. I get the feeling that there may be more biased when writing in the first person. You get a much better view, as if you look at those in a dollhouse.

As I see it, this book has two drawbacks, or rather two negative sides. The first is the story is pretty incredible, but on the other hand, usually the books be it. The other bad side is that the book can be perceived as difficult to read at times because of the difficult words, but there are some fun with, then you learn perhaps new words!

I wish we had this kind of good history books on history lessons!
