Customer Reviews

This book was one of the best I've ever read--I've read more than a few.
Keegan Ladner
Dicken's "A Tale of Two Cities" still has the plot twists, vivid characters, and theme (sacrifice) that makes a great story.
B. N. Peacock
The book was a good read, but I had a hard time with the style and wording of the book.

i would NOT recommend this product because it is abridged and doesn't say so on the cover. It was a big disappointment!

This version was no better than the previous word to text system on the kindle. Disappointing to say the least.

Format: Paperback
I had a bad experience with Dickens. 2 years ago I tried reading Oliver Twist, after seeing the Disney movie, but after going through 3 chapters that took up 40 pages each - but consisted of only 2 paragraphs each, just for Oliver to be born and named, I gave up. Now I'm in 8th grade and as a language arts assignment, we were to read a Dickens novel. It was either A Tale of Two Cities or Great Expectations. I saw the Wishbone summary of A Tale of Two Cities and thought it had a nice plot but was dreading going through Dickens's lllooooonnnggg drones.
This time however, Dickens secured my interest with the ideal beginning of "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times . . ." I was immediately drawn into the story of mystery and splendor. The characters didn't suddenly multiply like they did before and I got to understand each and every one - from pretty Lucie Manette to the harsh Monseigneur the Marquis.
Dickens's drifting speeches improved as well: turning out to be quite dramatic and interesting. Maybe the book could have been a lot shorter - but it gives you something to think on. And it's definitely better than just having an author say, "okay, this is the story and that's the end." Instead, he gives you a suspensful novel that you are never bored with. You have to carefully follow the story and see how the threads tie together in the end.
. . . Prepare to be amazed!

How can one of the greatest novels ever written be 236 pages long? It is shameful not to announce this on the cover & in the description. Amazon offers many other full version choices.

The work is well written, clever and knowing. I read it in 7th grade and did not appreciate much of the humor, insight and lovely use of language. Read it again or read it for the first time. So many of Dickens' insights could apply to the current age and that is what makes it a classic.

I studied this book in great detail while preparing for my GCE exams many years ago. However, re-reading it was quite a different experience, an eye opener for the mature reader. Now I am able to appreciate Dickens' writing far more and I shall certainly re-read more of his books. The details of the French Revolution were very educational and scarey in the sense that the atmosphere of fear and suspicion in France at the time of the Revolution still exist in many parts of the world today. It is a story of courage in the midst of chaos and distrust. It is also interwoven with love between father and daughter, husband and wife and, unforgettably, Sidney Carton's for the heroine.

A Tale of Two Cities is a book than can be read several times and still give renewed pleasure.
