A short summary of Oliver twist prefrably 50 words or so thanks?

Oliver Twist is a novel by Charles Dickens. It's about a little orphan boy in Victorian England, and what happens to him, but like all Dickens novels it's really about Victorian ideas of morality and ethical behavior.

In the orphanage, Oliver ask for more food. This is seen as so outrageous that they decide to sell him. He's sold to a funeral director because his face is so sad it's thought he would make a good 'professional mourner'. But then he runs off to join a troop of pickpockets and thieves, mostly children, run by a man named Fagan. There he has more adventures.

Like most of Dickens' novels, it ends with a bit of surprise information being revealed that changes everything.

Its a wonderful book, and one of the easier of Dickens' works to read today and understand. I highly recommend you read it. You'll probably enjoy it more than you thought you would. 8^)
