Astonishing

A gripping read. I was astonished by the power of this book. How have I lived so long and not read it before? Thank god I have at last.

Taken for granted

I think Dickens is taken for granted as an author. We've all seen Oliver! and believe his works are musical screenplays. A Tale of Two Cities is a gripping tale of courage in the face of adversity as readable as Chris Ryan or Andy McNab. Many of Dickens' literary techniques have been copied over the years but that doesn't make his books any less readable. If you are expecting Jane Austin or Emily Bronte think again.

Amazing

Absolutely couldn’t put it down towards the mid-end. It’s been a long time since I’ve cried out Loud so much to what’s happening in the pages and this book had me constantly doing so, it is totally fab.
