Summary

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times". A Tale of Two Cities, Dickens' only historical novel, sets personal happiness against the terrors of the French Revolution where the search for social justice sacrifices individual rights. Dr. Manette has emerged from eighteen years of unjust imprisonment in the Bastille. By an ironic twist of fate, his daughter Lucie's marriage draws the family into a terrifying web of circumstance which, it seems, can only end in death by the guillotine.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Great performance

A fantastic performance but the book is very heavily abridged and some chapters do feel rather short. The music is great too, although given the short running time there is rather a lot of it.

A Tale well known

A moving story narrated excellently by Anton Lesser. Also to enhance the experience is the appropriate orchestral music to add atmosphere and suspense.
