Notes and Editorial Reviews

This is the first in a series of classics retold for younger listeners. Oliver Twist, Dickens's second novel, has enthralled generations of readers since its publication in 1838. Orphaned and desolate, Oliver's journey to London and subsequent induction into its dingy underworld is narrated with ceaseless energy by Jonathan Keeble. His depictions of Fagin and the terrifying Bill Sikes are particularly mesmerising, and his reading is infused with a delicious knack for story-telling. Having been the subject of countless adaptations, Oliver Twist is an essential junior read, and this version is both exciting and accessible. Roy McMillan uses Dickens's original words in the main, simplifying and clarifying them at certain points.
