    Oliver is sent out on another job—this time assisting Sikes on a burglary. She dies before she can name him. On this errand, Oliver is shot in the arm and then is taken in by the family the Maylies that he attempted to rob. After an affair with a young actress and citing incompatibility with his wife, they separated in even though the marriage had produced 10 children.

    Brownlow move to the countryside where they spend the rest of their days together. The two of them manage to find a compromise. Monks found out at Mister Bumble that Oliver was his stepbrother. Unlike many audiobooks, a narrator reads most of the story but various actors read the dialog of the major characters. Though no older than Oliver, the Dodger talks and dresses like a grown man.

    Oliver is let out of the cellar and is whipped by Mr Sowerberry. Brownlow rushes him to his house and cares for him while he recovers from a fever. Outside London, Oliver, starved and exhausted, meets Jack Dawkins, a boy his own age. Monks has been pursuing Oliver all along in the hopes of ensuring that his half-brother is deprived of his share of the family inheritance. She enters the workhouse and then has her baby - a boy.
