Description

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times ..." With these famous words, Charles Dickens plunges the reader into one of history's most explosive eras-the French Revolution. From the storming of the Bastille to the relentless drop of the guillotine, Dickens vividly captures the terror and upheaval of that tumultuous period. At the center is the novel's hero, Sydney Carton, a lazy, alcoholic attorney who, inspired by a woman, makes the supreme sacrifice on the bloodstained streets of Paris. One of Dickens's most exciting novels, A Tale of Two Cities is a stirring classic of love, revenge, and resurrection. This edition contains extensive background information on both the author and the novel.
