Bookwomble I'm glad you're finding this better than you expected. That's always a bonus when you're tackling a book you're not sure about when going in. I loved Oliver Twist, and it's an important book culturally, being one of Dickens's works that brought the reality of workhouse poverty into the comfortable homes of the English middle classes. 2mo

I don't know why I am doing this to myself, but it has been on the #TBRshelve for ages (and when I say ages, I mean years!!!!) so better get it over and done with.
I liked a Christmas Carol and Great Expectations, so maybe this will not be so bad! #Hopeful

I‘ve never really liked reading ‘the classics‘. Every time I‘ve tried I ended up disappointed, or even bored. But, I keep trying, cause…well, there must be a reason they are considered classics, right? Reading Oliver Twist has not helped me to find that reason…
👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼

LittleBug It‘s a cute read, but it‘s filled with what I felt were plot holes. I‘d summarise the story as a ‘Murphy‘s Law‘ kind of heaping of bad luck, followed by a ‘divine intervention‘ kind of never ending good luck. The characters remained flat, stereotypical to me and the setting seemed surreal. I kept wondering if Dickens actually saw the world the way he described it, whether he was making fun of it, or whether that‘s actually the world he lived in…? 3mo

My second dickens. I have challenged myself to read everything dickens wrote in 2019 and i have just read the pickwick papers in 2 whole months, will have to speed up. Any suggestions?

lover.of.the.classics Oliver Twist is probably my favorite book by him, I also like Cricket on the Hearth. 3mo
ReclusiveHermit @lover.of.the.classics i am halfway through and enjoying all of it. I will be reading the cricket on the hearth soon. 3mo
abandonedonearth I am a great lover of the works of Dickens, and I own his complete works. However, even if I were not engaged in full-time studies, I don‘t think I would be able to read all of it in a year. 3mo
ReclusiveHermit @abandonedonearth his writing style is amazing and you are right, its going to be hard but i will give it a try and see how much of his work if not all i can complete. 2mo

I‘m currently sitting in a café trying to read Bram Stoker‘s Dracula in preparation for my upcoming trip to Romania.

The book is excellent, but I‘m completely distracted as a woman sitting near me in the café is talking about a dozen different books with her friend. So far I‘ve heard her speak of all of Austen‘s books, Dorian Gray, Oliver Twist, and David Copperfield.

I‘m dying to introduce myself! Should I?

I debated between “pick” and “so-so” for a while. I really like the story, but I struggled reading it. Every time I would sit down with it I could feel my eyes getting tired. But it‘s a classic and I can absolutely see why!

My first #Gilmoregirlsreadingchallenge progress report. I've read 99 of the 339 titles, or 29.2 per cent. I've been casually reading from the list for a couple of years now. As soon as I finish my current audiobook, I have Oliver Twist ready to go. I need an 'O' book for my AtoZ challenges anyway, so it'll be a twofer. 🙂 https://www.blackwhitereadbooks.com/the-official-list

I rarely re-read books but, occasionally, it is comforting to re-read an old favourite. Oliver Twist is the story of an orphan who is born in a workhouse in 1830s England. His mother, whose name no one knows, is found on the street and dies just after Oliver‘s birth. It is a great story and a grim social commentary

I typically shy away from sappy stories but Dickens is loaded with Victorian sentimentality and I love ❤️ him! Go figure 🤔 Oliver Twist is not my favorite (overt anti-Semitism is off putting) but still a good read.
