I really enjoyed this story and the standard paperback format of ENRICHED CLASSICS made it an excellent take along book that was light enough to be read comfortably while lying in bed.
Mr. Dickens has been accused of creating unrealistic and idealized cheracters, and in my opinion he does, yet he remains my favorite classical author. His books are rich in social commentary and he uses these idealized cheracters masterfully to illustrate his point.
Lets face facts if I wanted reality I would read the newspaper.

I am a fervent Charles Dickens fan, but have avoided Oliver Twist because I had seen many renditions of the musical "Oliver", and thought that I would be bored reading the actual novel. The truth is that the book contains much plot that did not make it to the musical, which in itself makes it worth reading. Also, Dickens inimitable style is charming (which comes as no surprise to us dyed in the wool Dickens fans), which is another reason to read it. I'm now motivated to reread the Dickens novels that I read in school!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I really enjoyed this book! I'm a sophomore in high school and read Oliver Twist as part of a school project. It took some time to adjust to the formal and old-fashioned language, but once I did I was able to love the book. Charles Dickens is very witty in pointing out the flaws in his own society, from the attitude of the wealthy towards the paupers to the view of women and how they should be treated. Dickens didn't romanticize the characters or the situations in which they were put. Although Dickens lived almost 200 years ago, I found most of his critiques applicable to our own society today. Oliver Twist is a novel that made me think about our world and how many `Olivers' there must be still today; it really made me want to help in some way. I love a book that makes me think, but I also love a good love-story. Charles Dickens didn't forget to include a tale of romance that ended happily for his audience, and this is really amazing to me. Oliver Twist, at first, seems to be a gritty and sadly realistic story about a boy who just can't catch a break; but Dickens constantly weaves in spots of light and happiness that give the reader hope that it will get better for Oliver, and without that I honestly don't know if would have been able to finish the novel. When I first bought this book I was about ten, I figured that since it was about a child, it would be a good classic for a child to start on; now that I've read it I don't think I would recommend this for anyone much younger than myself. Not only does it have some confusing old language, but Oliver Twist has some really dark moments and, more importantly, some discouraging and dismal ideas or commentary on our society. Although I don't think it would necessarily be `bad' for a young kid to read this, they just probably wouldn't understand it or enjoy it as much as someone older. Overall, I can't really say much more than Oliver Twist is a truly wonderful classic.
