Three words:

Best. Book. EVER!

This book is a classic. Dickens had a wonderful sense of humour - people who find "Oliver Twist" boring or depressing are missing the irony and satire that the book is brimming with.

Okay, so the story itself is sad and disturbing at many points, but the narration is so sarcastic, SO DARN FUNNY, that it brings to my eyes tears of mirth amidst the tears of pity and despair.

So, to the clever people out there:
You will laugh and cry until you think you'll never stop, and then some. Promise.
