8% done with Oliver Twist

The last time I read anything by Dickens I was probably 9 or 10 years old and while I was always a good reader, I’m sure 90% of it went right over my head.

Dickens’ sarcasm and dry wit are what really stand out (much to my pleasure since that’s my style too) but his characters so far are pretty thin (pun intended).

Granted he was writing more of a social commentary, but some of these bloaks are just laughable.
