Oliver! > Oliver Twist
Back when Melissa was still pregnant we had our girl name picked out (Lucy or Audrey) and our boy name (Oliver). I started to read Oliver Twist. That was back in March. It is September and I just finished the book this week. The story line from the movie is there, but man is that book wordy. That was why I really struggled to get through it.
Last week I watched the movie Oliver! which is based on the book. When people use the line that the book is better than the movie I usually agree. Books tell stories a lot better, but the book just dragged on way too much.
A couple more classic novels and I will be done with that goal.
