English assignment urgent help. A review on any of these classic novel?

Charles Dicken's Oliver Twist would be the best. David Copperfield would also be good. A tale of two cities would also do it. Jane Austin's Pride and Prejudice or any other classic novel would do it.

The review should be of around 150 words, must seem like one written by class 11th student, not by a proffessional, shouldn't be as good as the teacher wouldn't believe that I wrote it.

I don't have much time to read a whole novel, as I also have other assignments to prepare, so please help!

10 points guaranteed.

    As i have read Pride and Prejudice a lot, i will give its summary

    The novel's about Elizabeth Bennett, the second eldest of five daughters. She's a strong woman who deals with the problems of 19th century England. Her mother and sisters are eccentric women; her father is indolent; Elizabeth is only close to her older sister, Jane. She starts off on bad terms with Mr Darcy, an extremely proud, wealthy bachelor. Despite belonging to the same social status, Darcy scorns Elizabeth's maternal side for being poorer. However, he's attracted to Elizabeth cos of her strong, lively nature. He struggles with his vanity but can't control and proposes. She refuses him as he'd separated his friend from Jane and for disinheriting his father's ward Wickham, who it turns out lied to her. Both let go of their prejudices: Darcy changes himself to be less proud and judge people based on their characters, not wealth, while Elizabeth learns not to judge on first impressions.

    Oliver Twist by CHarles Dickens is a great book. It details a story of a boy who was born and his mother died leaving him an orphan. he was sent away to live with a family. Eventually he meets up with the street "group" i guess of boys that pick-pocket people. He joins them not noticing what he's doing but gets in trouble when they frame him of pick-pocketing. His family realizes that he was framed. If youi're really interested in this book, get a smaller version of it and it basically gives you the whole story in 100-200 pages and you'll get it done super quick :)

    Source(s): Im in eighth grade and read at a university level, i've read almost every version of any classic novel you can find.

    Oliver Twist is born in a workhouse in a provincial town. His mother has been found very sick in the street, and she gives birth to Oliver just before she dies. Oliver is raised under the care of Mrs. Mann and the beadle Mr. Bumble in the workhouse. When it falls to Oliver’s lot to ask for more food on behalf of all the starving children in the workhouse, he is trashed, and then apprenticed to an undertaker, Mr. Sowerberry. Another apprentice of Mr. Sowerberry’s, Noah Claypole insults Oliver’s dead mother and the small and frail Oliver attacks him. However, Oliver is punished severely, and he runs away to London. Here he is picked up by Jack Dawkins or the Artful Dodger as he is called. The Artful Dodger is a member of the Jew Fagin’s gang of boys. Fagin has trained the boys to become pickpockets. The Artful Dodger takes Oliver to Fagin’s den in the London slums, and Oliver, who innocently does not understand that he is among criminals, becomes one of Fagin’s boys.

    When Oliver is sent out with The Artful Dodger and another boy on a pickpocket expedition Oliver is so shocked when he realizes what is going on that he and not the two other boys are caught. Fortunately, the victim of the thieves, the old benevolent gentleman, Mr. Brownlow rescues Oliver from arrest and brings him to his house, where the housekeeper, Mrs. Bedwin nurses him back to life after he had fallen sick, and for the first time in his life he is happy.

    However, with the help of the brutal murderer Bill Sikes and the prostitute Nancy Fagin kidnaps Oliver. Fagin is prompted to do this by the mysterious Mr. Monks. Oliver is taken along on a burglary expedition in the country. The thieves are discovered in the house of Mrs. Maylie and her adopted niece, Rose, and Oliver is shot and wounded. Sikes escapes. Rose and Mrs. Maylie nurse the wounded Oliver. When he tells them his story they believe him, and he settles with them. While living with Rose and Mrs. Maylie Oliver one day sees Fagin and Monks looking at him in through a window. Nancy discovers that Monks is plotting against Oliver for some reason, bribing Fagin to corrupt his innocence. Nancy also learns that there is some kind of connection between Rose and Oliver; but after having told Rose’s adviser and friend Dr. Losberne about it on the steps of London Bridge, she is discovered by Noah Claypole, who in the meantime has become a member of Fagin’s gang, and Sykes murders her. On his frantic flight away from the crime Sykes accidentally and dramatically hangs himself. Fagin and the rest of the gang are arrested. Fagin is executed after Oliver has visited him in the condemned cell in Newgate Prison. The Artful Dodger is transported after a court scene in which he eloquently defends himself and his class.

    Monks’ plot against Oliver is disclosed by Mr. Brownlow. Monks is Oliver’s half-brother seeking all of the inheritance for himself. Oliver’s father’s will states that he will leave money to Oliver on the condition that his reputation is clean. Oliver’s dead mother and Rose were sisters. Monks receives his share of the inheritance and goes away to America. He dies in prison there, and Oliver is adopted by Mr. Brownlow.

    Oliver Twist:

    Oliver is born in a workhouse in a small town near London, England in the early part of the 19th century. His mother dies almost immediately after his birth.

    Oliver is brought up at a "child farm" in the country until he is about eight years old. At this point, the parish officials running the child farm decide it’s time for him to start working, and they send him back to the workhouse. But Oliver commits the unpardonable offence of asking for more food when he is close to starving, so the parish officials offer five pounds to anyone who’s willing to take Oliver on as an apprentice. The parish officials eventually send Oliver off with a coffin-maker.

    Oliver gets in trouble there and after being abused some more decides to set out for London on foot.

    He falls into wrong hands and is wrongfully accused of pick pocketing a gentleman who later takes kindly to him and takes him to his home and cares for him

    The thieves manage to abduct Oliver once more and try to turn him into a criminal and on one of his assignments is badly injured.

    Fortunately, Oliver is picked up by the people who shot him, a family that turns out to be as nice as Mr. Brownlow.

    While Fagin and the criminals distress, Oliver learns to read and write with his new friends, the Maylies. He's also reunited with his first friend, Mr. Brownlow.
