John Inverdale's 6 best books

John Inverdale, a BBC TV and radio presenter, named his six best books for the Daily Express.

One title on his list:
OLIVER TWIST by Charles Dickens

I'm reading Dickens's Oliver Twist - for the first time in my life - and enjoying it so much that I can't put it down. I was forced to read Dickens on sufferance at school and took no pleasure in it at all. Now I think the characterisation, story and attention to detail are just wonderful.
