One of the most famous works of fiction ever written, A Tale of Two Cities presents a portrait of Paris and London in the years before and after the French Revolution. It follows a pair of protagonists, the French aristocrat Charles Darnay and the British barrister Sydney Carton, as their lives are dramatically altered by the wrath of the revolutionaries. A Tale of Two Cities addresses the fundamentally dual nature of humanity, and a reflects on what it means to do the right thing, regardless of how the world perceives it.

Just started reading. Loving it!
I just started reading I’m on page 14 right now. I am super loving it so far :) Great book. I’m only 10 years old and I like it ( I’m going to 6th grade in a few months) I hope I keep loving this book because I need something to read when I’m bored if I’m not watching Netflix or playing video games. When I finish the book I’ll be making another review. But still, for now I’m recommending this book for those people who love to read and enjoy doing it.
The stories of a doctor and his daughter, a son of an aristocrat, a banker, a lawyer, a wine-vendor and his wife, among other unforgettable characters, intertwine on the backdrop of the French Revolution. An excellent portrayal of social injustice. This novel, with its memorable characters and page-turning plot twists, has made a dramatic impact on my perception of life, wealth, death, etc.
