Praise and Critics

Although the writer has wrote a story very well and in positive manner.

  • week point- Oliver’s character is week,insignificant and less engaging
  • Strong point- Author used connective words and good phrases in order to attract reader.

Overall, The Oliver twist is the novel that is dark throughout but ending give you a relief. So it is wonderful tell and worth reading classic book. This is one of the most famous pieces of English culture for a good reason. it’s wonderful by a country mile. It is an absolute joy for its jet-black satire a beautiful mix of characters both real and cartoonish prose. Perhaps isn’t as elegant and intricate as his later work but there’s still both remarkable and highly enjoyable
