I bought this on sale. The audio is horrible! Every time the narrator begins to speak, the first second/syllable is cut off. I would not buy THIS version. Look for another...

What did you love best about A Tale of Two Cities?
I love that it gave a clear view of the French Revolution and an understanding of the celebration for the people's storming of the Bastille. Dickens opening page that it was the best of times and the worst of times, gives a clear picture to the two opposing sides of this bloody history, when the good side descends into the worst of human behaviour.
It opens with the very best lines, that sum up each point along the continuum of human history. It ends with the best line of all: "It is a far, far better thing I do than I have ever done. It is a far, far better rest I go to than I have ever known."
What was one of the most memorable moments of A Tale of Two Cities?
It begins with one and that continues to the last line of the book.
Which scene was your favorite?
Huge competition but perhaps it's the battle of equals when Miss Pross and Madame Defarge confront each other.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Any additional comments?
As page one tells, this book could be written for any time in human history. The same brutality and injustice exists in our world today as it did hundreds of years ago. Dickens provides these deeds with a smattering of humour in both main and secondary characters. His wit is certainly razor-sharp.
