Publisher's Summary

David Timson talks about Charles Dickens, much loved for his great contribution to classic English Literature. Listen to A Tale of Two Cities narrated by Anton Lesser.
"It was the best of times and the worst of times." In one of the most famous openings of any novel, Dickens masterfully presents the turmoil of the French Revolution, which is the backdrop for a novel of love, patience, hope, and self-sacrifice. This version is read by Anton Lesser, whose award-winning Dickens recordings in their abridged form has now resulted in the opportunity to read the full unabridged text. His singular characterizations led to him being chosen by Peter Ackroyd to play Dickens himself in the major TV account of the writer.

Waste of time

This is nothing more than the beginning of the book! To me, an introduction is information about the book itself, how it came to be written, background, little known facts. This is min labeled. It should be called "Samples of...". A waste of $ and time.
