The narrator is pretty good, but they don't tell you that this is an abridged version. This is the first time I have read A Tale of Two Cities, so I read a summary of the book after listening to the tape. After reading the summary, I found that major parts of the story were left out of the audiobook, which had made listening to the audiobook very confusing. The parts they left out and the parts they kept did not make for a seamless reading. This purchase was a big disappointment.
