Because he is very skilled in dodging the policemen's attempts to arrest him or other people's questions. At the same time, he can smell "the prey" from a great distance.

Fagin's greed signifies all that is bad in London at this point in time, especially in Dickens' eyes. Perhaps his sentence of death is symbolic. It marks the end of evil, greedy tendencies and the beginning of generosity and kindness as the norm. It makes for a happy ending that the bad guys go down in flames. I am not sure if he could legally be sentenced to death, but maybe Dickens was coming from a different angle. There are many reasons for Fagin's death. Simply put, he's the bad guy, and the bad guy's just getting what's been coming to him. Since he's portrayed as evil, no one can identify w/ him at the end b/c he's almost subhuman. But it's also important to consider how much Dickens emphasizes Fagin's religious background. With all of these stereotypes going on, he is also ostracized on another level b/c in society-at-large, he's apart from the unsympathetic majority.

As far as the institutions and attitudes described in the book are concerned - yes, I'm afraid it is; things DID happen like this. As for the extraordinary stroke of luck that made Oliver's family take him in without knowing who he was - that was a current literary device.

I would estimate they number in the thousands.
The lengthy first sentence is also the first paragraph: Among other public buildings in a certain town, which for many reasons it will be prudent to refrain from mentioning, and to which I will assign no fictitious name, there is one anciently common to most towns, great or small: to wit, a workhouse; and in this workhouse was born; on a day and date which I need not trouble myself to repeat, inasmuch as it can be of no possible consequence to the reader, in this stage of the business at all events; the item of mortality whose name is prefixed to the head of this chapter.
Oliver Twist is a crossover book, and is mostly suitable for adults and young adults or teenagers. There are simplified, or abridged versions for younger readers, however. I believe Usborne do a good one.
He was not treated well by the people but only few persons treated him right.
The hero or main character of the novel is called Oliver Twist. He is born in a workhouse to a dying mother and the parish beadle names him "Oliver Twist". At the time it was standard practice to name orphans in such a way that their names were unlike those of real people in the area. However, the names were unmistakably English. (Have you ever encountered the family name "Twist" in real life?) Obviously, the name was invented by the author, Charles Dickens. I hope this is of some use.
