Book Description

The first Kindle novel by #1 New York Times Best-selling Author Tony Lee!

Twelve years on from the events of OLIVER TWIST, a once-more penniless Oliver is back on the streets of London... When a meeting with the now grown-up Artful Dodger leads Oliver into a scheme to regain his money, he begins to wonder just how accidental the meeting was, as friends and foes from his past begin to mount up in a plan to steal the fabled Koh-I-Noor diamond from the 1851 Great Exhibition.

As the heist progresses, Oliver is pulled back into a world he hoped to escape from a decade earlier, a world of deception and betrayal, where every ally is a potential enemy and where his so called 'friend' Dodger is speaking to the ghost of the long dead Fagin - and planning his revenge on Oliver.

Oliver finds himself in a maze of lies and half truths while escaping the police, the East End underworld and Dodger's own violent plans - visiting his once home town and workhouse, Fagin's Saffron Hill den, Sowerberry's Undertakers, the British Museum and Newgate Prison in the process, as he faces his own demons, including the now destitute Mister Bumble, his one time bully Noah Claypole, and his guilt over the death of Nancy, a decade earlier...

In a situation that can only end with a noose around his neck, Oliver must find a way out of this nightmare - or forever stay a pawn in a game far bigger than that of the people around him, a game he must win at all costs...

DODGE & TWIST is a rollercoaster ride through Victorian London, involving characters from OLIVER TWIST in a brand new, thrilling adventure.

TONY LEE is an award winning writer of audio dramas and comics, the ongoing writer of IDW's DOCTOR WHO series for both Tenth and Eleventh Doctors and the writer of OUTLAW: THE LEGEND OF ROBIN HOOD and EXCALIBUR: THE LEGEND OF KING ARTHUR, both American Library Association 'Books for Teens' finalists.

His graphic novel adaptation of PRIDE & PREJUDICE & ZOMBIES topped the New York Times Bestselling Graphic Novel list in 2010.

3.0 out of 5 stars Critique of Dodge & Twist October 10, 2011
By Erin
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'll admit I feel a certain amount of trepidation whenever hearing about a writer continuing the work of a very famous author. I tried to read a sequel to Pride and Prejudice and couldn't work my way past the first hundred pages because it was utter tripe. A travesty. I enjoy a good romance novel or twelve and I found the book to be so completely without literary merit that I won't even mention the title. I decided to give Dodge & Twist a chance despite my prior experiences because Lee's writing is enjoyable, and counting it out wasn't fair.

I also have a bit of a love-hate relationship with Dickens. As a teenager nothing filled me with quite so much terror as the realization I would have to read A Tale of Two Cities. Since then I've come to appreciate his talents, and I even enjoyed Great Expectations, which shares many plot elements with Oliver Twist: an impoverished boy abused by his guardians finds his fortune through a series of unlikely events. That being said, I haven't read Twist in years. I purposefully didn't want to reread it before diving into Lee's book, because I didn't want to compare.

The first page of Dodge & Twist is hardly stellar. The beginning paragraphs are repetitive, the verbs lacking variance, and my editorial eye couldn't help but pick up on the small mistakes throughout the novel. The book is self-published, and likely didn't go through the laborious process before being released, and therefore missed a few important checks along the way. My apologies to whoever did edit the book; I moonlight on occasion and I know editing is difficult, but a good copy editor should be able to read a novel, pick out these glaring mistakes, and discuss them with the author.

After the first chapter ignoring the mistakes is easier.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazed!!!! :) November 4, 2014
By SayukiS

Wow, what an amazing read! It is so incredibly insightful, and holds true to the very prominent battle of crime versus virtue which was always at the heart of the original story. The characters are beautifully complex and true to themselves. The plot is intricate and the heist exciting and suspenseful. Within the intriguing chapters, the past and present seem to walk alongside one another, as the characters revisit their old haunts. There is a beloved touch of angst from Oliver as he constantly struggles with his conscience through the entirety of the tale. Dodger is wonderfully captured and deeply touched me through the depth of his portrayal. Not only is this a very elaborate scheme to complete a very clever heist, but it is also seems to be an endeavor by him to claim some form of redemption. By the end of it, the raw emotion finally breaking free from the always composed Dodger left me with such a feeling empathy. This literary work was very thought out and I applaud the wonderful author for his dedication. I enjoyed this so immensely! It definitely made an impact.

Never having read Oliver Twist it did take a bit to 'catch up' with some the characters I didn't know but overall a very satisfying read and well worth my time.
