Oliver Twist sets everything forth in just the title: a twisting and turning of plot events that take the young boy - as well as the listener - on a very emotional journey, from start to finish. The young Oliver is orphaned practically at birth, and when he grows up, he is passed off to several people who simply put him to work without really caring for him. Oliver escapes after being put to work by a coffin-maker, yet his new found freedom leads him right to a few individuals who do not have his best interests in mind. They're so-called friends who take him in, yet they have the intention of priming him to be a pick-pocket. But with each downturn in his life, there is a corresponding up-swing for Oliver.
It's incredible to note that he is such a young age throughout the story, when many of the tasks he faced and overcame were so mature. Despite his tribulations, his run-ins with people who are trying to harm him, and his brief captivity with a band of criminals, Oliver experiences a happy ending after all, which has made all of the journeying and the searching worth it for him.

Terrible narrator of a great story
Narrator was awful. This is such a surprise as Audible does such a great job with choosing excellent narrators. This recording got a high rating for some strange reason. The narrator really spoiled a great story. I am tempted to buy another version... I am originally English so I am not put off by an English narrator, just not this guy
Absolutely not, a terrible narrator. Rushes the text, makes constant errors and has no narration abilities.
