Next Up : Oliver Twist

Title: Oliver Twist
Author: Charles Dickens
Published: 1838

Bauer recommends the Modern Library edition (New York; Random House 2001), and Chris was able to find it at our local bookstore. The illustrations are a nice touch, but the print is small. We'll see how I do. 

I'm excited about this one. I've never read it, but I know the basic storyline. I've also seen the musical numerous times, both the movie and on stage, so it'll be interesting to see how closely they line up.

Is Oliver Twist the only Dickens on the Bauer list?

Also, does the list come in a reading order?

The list is in order of publishing date. It's already worked out, because in this book, the word 'quixotic' was used, and I understood the reference.

This is the only Dickens. She wrote that if we like a book, we should seek out other works by that author.
