A Tale of Two Cities, Hardback
4 out of 5 (1 rating)


This brilliantly coloured tale of the French Revolution is an historical romance set in Paris and London.

Famous for the character of Sidney Carton who sacrifices himself upon the guillotine' it is a far, far better thing I do than I have ever done '- the novel is also a powerful study of crowd psychology and the dark emotions aroused by the Revolution, illuminated by Dickens' lively comedy

Review by

Another prominent Dickens masterpiece. This novel puts a human face to the French revolution. Regardless of how true its representation of the revolution is, it depicts the suffering of many innocent people that happens in any revolution, where the tide of change sweeps the good and bad equally, and where the human perception of violent and brutal acts changes from outright condemnation to what can be described as enjoyment.
