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.

A tale of two cities
The archaic language makes difficult reading at times but it is a fantastic story very well written, as one would expect from a Dickens novel.
Well done loved the book I love to read this book until I get old xxx
A great book
I haven't read any Dickens for years but have been meaning to read a Tale of Two Cities and I am so glad I have. Full of richly drawn characters, a gripping story and a deeply moving ending.
