Publisher's Summary

A Tale of Two Cities, one of Charles Dickens' most popular works, is highly recognized for its opening line, "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times." The two cities of the title are Paris and London; the time is the height of the French Revolution. From the gripping opening scene of the coach drive to the heroic climax in the shadow of the guillotine, Dickens creates a vivid picture of social turmoil and the unfolding of a dramatic love story.
(P)1983 HNP, Produced by Felix Fisher

almost great

To me, this just missed being a great listen. Although others have said they liked the narrator, I found him a touch too melodramatic in many places, highlighting that weaker aspect of the novel. I wish that I had downloaded the F Davidson version instead.

Some of the online "product descriptions" call this Dickens' only "not comic" novel -- I thought 2 Cities contained much excellent ironic humour.

Very good reading of a great book

A Tale of Two Cities has always been a favorite book, the tragedy, the intrigue, the sweep of fate. But I didn't realize how much of the book I was skimming over when reading it until I listened to the audio. The narrator is excellent. His use of different voices is seamless and well done, adding much to the understanding of the book. The portrayed emotion also is excellent. I enjoyed this recording immensely.
