The novel depicts the plight of the French peasantry demoralised by the French aristocracy in the years leading up to the revolution, the corresponding brutality demonstrated by the revolutionaries toward the former aristocrats in the early years of the revolution, and many unflattering social parallels with life in London during the same time period. It follows the lives of several characters through these events.

Tale of Two Cities
is it even right to rate Dickens? I am exhausted from the beauty of his prose. This is the third time I have read this novel and it keeps getting better and more topical!

Many times this was very hard to put down. Anxious with anticipation.
It is hard to believe mans inhumanity to man.
