Summary

Dickens' classic story about a young orphan who falls in with criminals on the streets of London.

The story of orphaned Oliver, who runs away from the workhouse only to be taken in by a den of thieves.

Plunged into a dark criminal underworld of vivid and memorable characters - the arch-villain Fagin, the artful Dodger, the menacing Bill Sikes and kind-hearted Nancy - Oliver struggles to survive and find his real family.

A rich, powerful look at London poverty from Charles Dickens.
