Review: A Tale of Two Cities


A Tale of Two Cities
A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens

My rating: 4 of 5 stars



I recently had a challenge task to re-read a classic I'd read in high school. I had also recently received a free audiobook copy of this book. So it all came together naturally, and here we are. The best of times and the worst of times.

I really enjoy the writing of Dickens, though I've only attempted a few of his works. I don't always understand what's going on, but the flow of his language is beautful and engaging. This time around, I found SparkNotes online and kept up with the chapter summaries as I listened. This helped clarify a lot and caught me up on points where my focus had drifted off a bit.

The reader was excellent, perfect for this story.

I felt like I had to come back and review this, as I didn't write one when I finished. But ever since I have, the book has been coming back to my mind. It is such a moving experience. Not only for the writing, but for the story itself.

And it has me wanting to try more Dickens.
