Book Review

Tale of Two Cities, A Tale of Two Cities, A by Charles Dickens

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I love the classics, they've been around this long for a good reason. A Tale of Two Cities is one that you hear of your whole life, but it's never discussed in great detail. Even the movies and shows that play off of the title rarely follow the actual vein that this book is written in.

At times, Dickens is hard to follow because of his long, flowery introductions of characters or scenes. Once you get to who or what he's talking about, it's much easier to follow the plot and imagine what he's just described, though. I highly recommend that everyone should read this book for no other reason than to see what things were like for both the upper and lower classes during the French Revolution. Books like this are wonderful history lessons and really bring the time periods to life.
