“One of the 1000 novels everyone must read” The Guardian

“Dickens's tale of love and revolution in London and Paris is among his finest, both intimate and epic in scale” The Observer

“Charles Dickens' A Tale of Two Cities thrives on tension and conflict, all set against a bloody backdrop of the French Revolution . . . Through the senses, Dickens transports us deeper and deeper into another era with each turn of the page. Smell the acidity of red wine as it spills on the streets and ominously stains the faces, hands and feet of peasants who lap it up in desperation; feel the competing emotions of heartache and hope as one of Lucie's suitors stands trial; hear the cries of the raging mob and the clangs of their weapons as they storm the Bastille; see the glint of the guillotine as it falls swiftly to its victim below. The novel's sense of urgency and intimacy will draw you in and propel you through one of the most tumultuous times in history.” Oprah’s Book Club

A TALE OF TWO CITIES is one of the most profound and exciting novels of all time. It has been made into film and television adaptations, and its famous lines "It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done" have entered into the language. This is Dickens’ masterpiece presented as it was meant to be read, with all the original illustrations.
