Would you try another book from Charles Dickens and/or Jim Donaldson?
I would probably read Charles Dickens again as he is a good author, however Jim Donaldson probably not.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
I would make the first book in the novel (there are 3 books in "A Tale of Two Cities") a bit more exciting to the reader as to capture their interest sooner.
What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?
Donaldson tries to change his voice for every character but you can't do it all I am sorry to say and it did nothing to help with the mania of words. Also the paraphrasing, rewording, and changing the structure of sentences in paragraphs made it hard to follow in the actual book. I could even go as far as to say butchering Dickens work a bit in my opinion.
Was A Tale of Two Cities worth the listening time?
Not exactly but I had to read it for a class, and it is only worth listening and reading if you make it to the end... that's when things get really exciting!
Any additional comments?
Your audio chapter 41 and 42 were both Book 3, Chapter 12. I was highly displeased with this and had to obtain a book for a time in order to read chapter 11.

Excellent story but audio was very poor. So heavy with bass that even turning the bass all the way down I still had to turn the volume up quite high in order to make the words out clearly. Slogged through but really a shame it wasn't better.

quite a big read so fantastic to have read to you, especially as the language can be quite dense, a classic that everyone should have on their to read list.
