Charles Dickens has written many books but of all the books I have read my favorite is still "A Tale of Two Cities".
A Tale of Two Cities : : Charles Dickens
"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness." Thus Charles Dickens opened his gripping book of one of the most frightening times in all history...The French Revelation. He weaves together the stories of many people into one story... Lucie Manette, who shows devotion to her father she had not seen in 18 years and has come back completely changed. Charles Darnay, a young Frenchman who flees to England. Monsieur and Madame Defrage, who own a wine shop in France and becomes a leader in the revolution. Sydney Carton who drinks way to much but reforms in the end in the act of courage and sacrifice.
This book was VERY interesting! It has a very involving plot line and was very suspenseful. I did not like that Sydney Carton drank so much. This book showed the reality of the French revolution It showed the cruelty of the French people to the aristocrats and many other innocents. I really enjoyed this book but because of the VERY involved plot and because of Sydney Carton's bad habit of drinking I would only recommend this book for older readers. I gave this book a 4.5 out of 5 stars.
