Oliver Twist, or The Parish Boy's Progress, is the second novel by English author Charles Dickens and was first published as a serial 1837–39. The story is of the orphan Oliver Twist, who starts his life in a workhouse and is then sold into apprenticeship with an undertaker. He escapes from there and travels to London, where he meets the Artful Dodger, a member of a gang of juvenile pickpockets led by the elderly criminal, Fagin. Oliver Twist was born into a life of poverty and misfortune in a workhouse in an unnamed town (although when originally published in Bentley's Miscellany in 1837, the town was called Mudfog and said to be within 70 miles north of London – in reality, this is the location of the town of Northampton). Orphaned by his mother's death in childbirth and his father's unexplained absence, Oliver is meagerly provided for under the terms of the Poor Law and spends the first nine years of his life living at a baby farm in the 'care' of a woman named Mrs. Mann. Oliver is brought up with little food and few comforts. Around the time of Oliver's ninth birthday, Mr. Bumble, the parish beadle, removes Oliver from the baby farm and puts him to work picking and weaving oakum at the main workhouse. Oliver, who toils with very little food, remains in the workhouse for six months. One day, the desperately hungry boys decide to draw lots; the loser must ask for another portion of gruel. The task falls to Oliver, who at the next meal tremblingly comes up forward, bowl in hand, and begs Mr. Bumble for gruel with his famous request: ´´Please, sir, I want some more´´.
Ein dunkler, erotischer Roman. Entführt und auf eine einsame Insel verschleppt. Ich hätte niemals gedacht, dass mir so etwas passiert. Ich hätte mir niemals vorstellen können, dass eine zufällige Begegnung kurz vor meinem achtzehnten Geburtstag mein Leben völlig umkrempeln würde. Jetzt gehöre ich ihm. Julian. Dem Mann, der genauso rücksichtslos wie gutaussehend ist ? dem Mann, dessen Berührungen mich brennen lassen. Ein Mann, dessen Zärtlichkeit ich verstörender finde, als seine Grausamkeit. Mein Entführer ist ein Rätsel für mich. Ich weiß nicht, wer er ist, oder warum er mich verschleppt hat. In ihm ist eine Dunkelheit ? eine Dunkelheit, die mir genauso Angst macht, wie sie mich anzieht. Mein Name ist Nora Leston und das ist meine Geschichte.

Ada Twist´s Big Project Book for Stellar Scientists: Andrea Beaty
Love is somewhere near the bottom of Lily Thomas´ list of life goals, right next to competitive eating and underwater cave diving. She´s spent six years pirouetting and pliéing her way up the ranks of the New York Ballet with her eye on the prize and love in the back seat. But now that Blane Baker - Lily´s long time crush - is finally single, she´ll throw her rules out the window without thinking twice. Reality with Blane isn´t as epic as the fantasy she imagined, and the truth sends her spinning straight into the arms of the man she never knew she´d always wanted. West Williams has been friends with Lily since the day she moved into their building, and he saved her armoire from a swift, sudden death by staircase. Their friendship has always been easy, the boundaries clearly defined. With neither of them willing to risk their relationship, they´ve drifted happily through the years as companions, never considering more. That is, until they do. And that realization changes everything. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kirsten Leigh. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/047168/bk_acx0_047168_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
