Fagin's Boy is Book Before reading: Oliver Twist/Artful Dodger gay romance SIGN ME UP!First half of book: Wow, this Oliver is kind of a classist jerk. What kind of person ignores child abuse in your own home because it reminds you too much of what you suffered as child?Second half of book: Oliver doesn't deserve Jack!! Jack is clearly the most pure-hearted and lonesome pick-pocket!After reading:Yikes????? The ending??

Popular Books Fagin's Boy What a great way to revisit a Dickens classic! Full review available on MINA'S BOOKSHELF http://minadecaro.blogspot.com/2014/0...If you think that writing your first book as a sequel to a timeless masterpiece could be an exceedingly ambitious project, bound to fail against the magnitude of a nineteenth-century master storyteller, you obviously have never heard of CHRISTINA E. PILZ, newcomer author of historical fiction. Newcomer she may be, but I honestly think you would hardly find a better way to revisit a Dickens classic other than reading Pilz's debut novel, FAGIN'S BOY. If you are familiar with the extraordinary British novelist and his work, chances are you will be genuinely enthralled by Pilz's ability to breathe new life into an iconic character of the Victorian realism. In her extremely well-executed novel, the author re-imagines, with exquisite richness of historical details, and penetrating understanding of character and social biases, the young adult life of Oliver Twist. The angel-face workhouse orphan, who refused to let his humble and troubled beginnings define his future, returns in Fagin's Boy to build new bridges and rehash old demons. The resolution of this riveting and vividly drawn tale will blow you away. Highly recommended.
