"My name is Seth Fowler and I chose Oliver Twist as the book that changed my life. I'm not so sure that it actual changed my life, but it did change the way I think. I spent some time traveling throughout India and Nepal over the past year. In that year I encountered many young children who faced child labor in some terrible factories and mills. It relates well with what Charles Dickens had to go through as a child, and what the character Oliver has to go through as well. This book seriously made me sit down and think about the problems with the social classes and gave me a drive to shed light on the many flaws amongst classes. Oliver Twist has given me a desire to pursue social work along with journalism as a career to get the stories out to the world about child labor and the other countless crimes committed towards children around the world."
