Notes:The storming of the Bastille … the death carts with their doomed human cargo … the swift drop of the guillotine blade — this is the French Revolution that Charles Dickens vividly captures in this famous work. Full of unforgettable characters: the sinister Madame Defarge, knitting her patterns of death; the gentle Lucie Manette, unswerving in her devotion to her broken father; the heroic Sydney Carton who gives his life for the love of a girl who would never be his.

COMMENTS — “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times … It is a far, far better thing I do than I have ever done … “
My Rating: 8
