Publisher's Summary

Hear Dickens' gift for social commentary in this classic story of the poor orphan, Oliver. In this time-tested classic, Dickens aimed to expose the filth of the London underworld as well as attack the inhumanity of the New Poor Law of 1834. This audiobook is a stunning performance by the award-winning Miriam Margolyes, who is considered one of the most knowledgeable and brilliant actors/interpreters of Dickens.

Critic Reviews

"Acclaimed Dickens interpreter Miriam Margolyes does an unabridged reading of Oliver Twist that is a revelation. Margolyes forced me to see a book I hadn't read since high school in all its complexity. With her voice, she conveys Dickens' fury at the suffering of children, his seething contempt for well-fed adults, his rage at corrupt officials. Margolyes' performance is so magnificent that she doesn't so much read Dickens as inhabit his people." (USA Today)

Excellent!

One of the better audiobooks I've purchased. Ms. Margolyes is a wonderful narrator and she is able to create believable voices for all the characters.

Great story, very bad quality recording

This is a great story and the narrator is very good. Unfortunately, there is a lot of background noise. I did let the Audible.com people know. Hopefully, the quality issue will be resolved.
