"Decidedly unsentimental in its depiction of poverty and the criminal underworld, especially in its portrayal of the cruel Bill Sikes." (Merriam Webster's Encyclopedia of Literature)

Nadia May's narration is spot on
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I have both read, and listened to this book. The narration that Nadia May does is one of the better ones. She has a way of elevating her voice between characters, really making you feel for Oliver, cry with Nancy, feel disgusted with Bill Sykes, and feel the cunningness of the artful dodger. it is anything but monotoned. Story of Oliver Twist is perhaps one of better well known Dickens books, but it is a must listen to. the intricate detail and plot twist makes you want to delve even deeper into the intrigue and subtle mystery of the identity of poor orphan Oliver. Dickens details of the scenes are quite intense, where you can feel the cold that Oliver feels and smell the poverty all around, while not getting bored with copious amounts of dry details. The book immediately tantalizes the mind as within the very first minutes it demands your attention and you can't help but be give in and loose yourself in the book. There are some parts of the book where it is slow, but only enough to give rise to depth in narration. I first listened to this exact narration of this book when I was 10yrs old and instantly fell in love with it. And now as a young adult I still give fall In love with it every time I put my earbuds in.
Have you listened to any of Nadia May’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Yes, she did an amazing job on Till We Have Faces by C.S. Lewis
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
oh most definately

Some technical problems
The reading of this book is good and I am enjoying it. The only problem I have is the technical problems. A few times there is a couple of lines which have been repeated. More of a problem is when the reading of a chapter has been cut short. The first time was only a few lines but the second time cut a lot of CH 26. I am only half way through the book and am hoping its not going to happen again. Again other than these the reading is good and is well worth getting - that's if the problems don't get worse.
