Oliver Twist a story of Oliver, his mother died after giving him birth, church Father sent Oliver to the orphanage. Mrs Mann an in charge of an orphanage, was very bad and sent Oliver to work at Workhouse, at the age of 9 years. But in Workhouse, children don’t get enough food.

Oliver asked them for more food and they beat him and send him to work somewhere else. Oliver gets adopted by Mr Sowerberry, the another who lived there told Oliver bad things about his mother and both get into a fight. Mrs Soweberry beats Oliver and later Oliver ran away.

Oliver went to London and meets Jack Dawkins, a pickpocket and take Oliver to his boss. Jew Fagin, Jack boss taught boys to steal people purses. Oliver found Jack and other boys stealing and he doesn’t like it. The person from whom they are stealing and caught Oliver.

Mr Brownlow or a person who caught Oliver took him to his house. Oliver told him everything and he fell sick and Mr Brownlow housekeeper took care of him. Jack Kidnapped Oliver and took him to Mrs Maylie house. The police came to know about them hiding and arrested all and Mrs Maylie took care of Oliver. Mrs Mayle has niece “Rose” who was Oliver mother’s sister.

Mr Brownlow told Oliver about his uncle Mr Monk who was behind his money and wants Oliver to get killed. Oliver gave half of his money to Mr Monk and started staying at Mr Brownlow.

The book told about Poverty and Social Class, an injustice to Oliver Twist. My rating for this book is 5/5.
