  • Description

    One of the most famous works of fiction ever written, A Tale of Two Cities presents a portrait of Paris and London in the years before and after the French Revolution. It follows a pair of protagonists, the French aristocrat Charles Darnay and the British barrister Sydney Carton, as their lives are dramatically altered by the wrath of the revolutionaries. A Tale of Two Cities addresses the fundamentally dual nature of humanity, and a reflects on what it means to do the right thing, regardless of how the world perceives it.

      This is a good book if you can understand it. It goes kind of slow, too. I recommend the abridged version.

      Sorry, but I have to protest the obscure and twisted passages that prevail in this so-called Classic. Having read other offerings contemporary to Dickens, I found them more descriptive and understandable. Like M. Hugo, Dickens seems to delight in run-on sentences and highly unlikely dialogue. After reading the Cliff Notes version, which is in honest English, more nuances came to light then were intelligible in Dickens' telling. I am astonished that this book was recommended to me when I was merely 12. It was hard enough to understand 50+ years later.
