Summary:

This novel provides a highly charged examination of human suffering and human sacrifice, private experience and public history, during the French Revolution.

A Tale of Two Cities is one of Charles Dickens's most exciting novels. Set against the backdrop of the French Revolution, it tells the story of a family threatened by the terrible events of the past. Doctor Manette was wrongly imprisoned in the Bastille for eighteen years without trial by the aristocratic authorities. Finally released, he is reunited with his daughter, Lucie, who despite her French ancestry has been brought up in London. Lucie falls in love with Charles Darnay, another expatriate, who has abandoned wealth and a title in France because of his political convictions. When revolution breaks out in Paris, Darnay returns to the city to help an old family servant, but there he is arrested because of the crimes committed by his relations. His wife, Lucie, their young daughter, and her aged father follow him across the channel, thus putting all their lives in danger.

    I've grown up reading about Charles Dickens and his amazing stories for readers of all ages. A tale of two cities is once of those classics. I remember, I had this book back in school as part of my curriculum, but back then, I used to be not so smart, and skipped the reading. This time around thanks to the gripping audio format of the book, I grooved through the the tale of the two cities, and I fell in love with the story and the author's attention for detail. I'd recommend this book to every reader out there.
