    Book details

A Tale of Two Cities is one of the most thrilling narratives in the whole range of the literature of fiction. Considered apart from all the other works of Dickens, it would entitle him to a very high rank among romancers. 
The total effect of the novel, both in construction and content, is remarkably strong. A careful re-reading will convince one that no event is superfluous, that every scene pictured, every character introduced, every mysterious, whispered conference, leads straight to the final catastrophe. It is in fact a notable proof of Dickens’s skill in writing a novel of incident, — the way in which he draws so many events of the Revolution into the main current of his story, leaving no circumstance to eddy by itself. 
These merits and the many vivid and, in the main, true pictures of the Revolution give one good reason for calling The Tale of Two Cities a great novel. From it, a host of readers will continue to receive their first and most lasting impression of a great historical event, and at the same time will be exalted in mood by the heroic self-sacrifice of Sidney Carton.

  • By Mirtha Costa on October 7, 2015

    A classic. Describes a period of European History, specially England and France, with intelligent sense of humour and deep understanding.The plot is secondary, but even interesting. There is a chapter: "Monseigneur on town", that is a maasterpiece in itself. It's a book to be read many times, and always shows new aspects. May be tha's is the definition of a classic.

    This is the single piece of British literature that I actually like. It is as relevant now as it was two centuries ago. I read it in high school and have re-read it 20 years later.

    Thought I'd browse Amazon (once again) and see what illustrated classics could be had for a song and pass it on. Best of three illustrated versions I own including "A Tale of Two Cities (Illustrated) (Top Five Classics Book 7) " and "A Tale of Two Cities and Great Expectations (Illustrated)." Book is well-formatted with an active table of contents and fine illustrations making it an easy one to recommend.

    Far better formatting than many of the classics. This will always be a favorite.

    Great tale. Wonderful characters that I enjoyed getting to know. Ten more words are required for this review. Two more.

    Today, too, we see the best of times and the worst of times. I hope we have the courage to address our lop-sided economy before the public's resentment reaches a disastrous tipping point.

    Self-Made Wellionaire is not the typical self improvement book that is like most other self help books that one partially reads then puts down never to be opened again. Ginsberg knock it out of the park on the first page and continues to score for the reader on every page. Her style of writing is humorous, smart and completely on point, quickly gaining the readers interest and keeping it there. I enjoyed it so much that I ordered copies for my children knowing that they will benefit from reading it.
