Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. An important literary work that's also a joy to read. Browne did the illustrations for 10 of Dickens' novels. The images in the Kindle version are low-resolution scans of the original images or perhaps scans of other scans. On the Kindle Paperwhite, I don't think the images look very good, and some detail is hard to make out on some of the images.
On the 10" iPad running the Kindle app, the images are much easier to see, both in their original size and when blown up to take up almost the full screen. However, the low-resolution images don't look very crisp on the high-resolution iPad display. Note that you can see all the images online for free.
I'll put a link in the first comment. However, the site I link to doesn't tell you where each image belongs in the book, which chapter it goes with. The images are of historic significance, each one adds to the story the artist was working with Dickens , and I enjoy them a lot. Just set your expectations low if you're getting it for your Paperwhite.

The narrator introduces Oliver Twist , the novel's young protagonist, who is born in an unnamed town in s England, in a workhouse for the poor. The narrator claims that, although it is typically not considered good luck to be born in a workhouse, Oliver was, in this case, lucky: Since it was only the surgeon, an attending old woman, Oliver's mother , and Oliver at the birth, however, Oliver was allowed simply to "fight with Nature," and he eventually breathes.
The narrator here introduces his or her ironic tone, which will be maintained throughout the course of the novel.
