The horrific portrayal of the Reign of Terror during the French Revolution gives this otherwise light-hearted book plenty of gravity. Dickens' characterizations of mad revolutionaries like "The Vengeance" and out-of-control mobs eager for violence present an ugly picture of humanity at its worst. Within this terrible setting the characters from A TALE OF TWO CITIES face real danger in the second half of the book, where one is identified as a member of the previous aristocracy and is targeted for a date with La Guillotine. The emotional roller-coaster that follows his family trying to secure his release provides the only real drama of the story. All in all, this is a book worth reading, but not Dickens' best. For that, I would suggest Oliver Twist.
This Kindle version that I read was exellent. No typos or other problems, and the illustrations were small but visible.
This Top Five Classics Edition is organized for optimum maneuverability, is prettily arranged, very readable, and includes illustrations by Hablot K. Browne and Frederick Barnard (combining the illustrations from their various editions). A great reading copy for a great price!
After I finished my second reading, I realized that the intervening 50 years was about the same length of time between the actual French Revolution and Dickens' account of it in "A Tale of Two Cities." That added an interesting context to it.
