Everyone should read this story at least once in their lifetime.I will leave out all the deeper meanings of the symbolism of the various themes and keep this short and sweet. I believe that this is one book every person should read at least once in their lifetime. Set against the backdrop of the French Revolution there is some historical value to the book as well as being a classic story that stands on it's own.Read it, Learn from it. Get what you can from it. But most of all, enjoy it!!!5One of Dickens' bestWhat can you say? This novel is on the short list of Dickens' greatest or at least most iconic stories. Unlike some of his other novels this one does not take place in Victorian England but during the 18th century before and after the outbreak of the French Revolution. This is a tale of two cities London and Paris. There are big movements a work around the main characters, but this remains a character driven narrative. I have no way of critiquing this since it is embedded in a completely different time in novel writing. There are moments where it seems melodramatic or the language become a bit too effusive. There is also the fact that this was published chapter by chapter, week by week (I think) and so it does unfold like a 30 episode TV drama, albeit a very good well crafted one. There are secrets and mysteries and untold motivations that are revealed over time. It is very well structured and must have gone a long way in showing others how to write a long work. But in the end, I have to say, I was genuinely moved by the actions of the characters and afraid for them. For me, classic or not, that must be the mark of a great tale.4Ignore the troll reviews, this is a great editionFor some reason, some of the reviews on this page make false claims about this book being "bowdlerized". The authors of these reviews clearly did not read the book, because I have purchased it and examined the text myself and have not found anything missing. If the text is all Dickens, what was the role of the editor? The editor has added useful footnotes explaining aspects of the French Revolution and classical references that readers might not understand today, and provided an excellent selection of critical essays from English professors from across the country.Here's a couple passages from the essays included in the book: (1) "Most admirers of Dickens remember him for his inimitable characters, like the painfully innocent Oliver Twist, the oily Uriah Heep, or that 'covetous old sinner' Ebenezer Scrooge, while perhaps not realizing that Dickens creates these characters with his persistent and varied use of repetition." (2) "If A Tale of Two Cities is one of Charles Dickens' best novels, it is also his least typical. It is a novel wherein he allows almost no play to his madcap genius. In a sense it stands at the antipodes from the book that launched his career, The Pickwick Papers."As you can see, this is an excellent critical edition of the text -- as the back cover material states, the Ignatius Critical Editions series offers modern examinations grounded in "the same heritage that provided the crucible in which the great authors formed these classic works." Apparently the troll reviews are taking offense to the idea that Christians should be allowed to think and write. If you are at least willing to hear them out, this is a good book to choose and you will be satisfied with the additional material.5A masterpiece.A Tale of Two Cities is a definite favorite of mine. Despite being published in 1859, it still has the ability to draw the readier into the story and engage the mind. There are certainly elements of the book that we cannot relate to, living in this day and age. On the whole however, each person can find parallels and lessons applicable to their own life. Like many Dickens novels, there will be what seems like pages of useless details. It can be slow reading at times. Yet by the end of the book, everything comes together in a fantastic story and an ending that will leave you blown away. I can't recommend this book enough.5Love love loveThis story. Wow. The prose is pure poetry.I have been moved to tears.This was torture. This was beauty. This is redemption. This is glory.Read it!5Don't buy on KindleBought this on my kindle and came to me not as a kindle file but as a photocopy of text. Ridiculous font size and no way to adjust. I wish amazon would not allow products like this. Unreadable.1Highs and lows; easy and hard.2.5 starsI really struggled to rate this... So call it 2.5 - 3 stars.I also really struggled with the first part of the book. Almost gave up once or twice. But I am stubborn.It was a weird reading experience: at times I'd re-read the same sentence/paragraph over and over and still not be able to make any sense of it. At other times the pages would fly by easily and I quite enjoyed it. I do think the lack of context made some difference (context both of common phrases of the time and also the cities). Reading it on my Kindle did help somewhat because I could look up some of the words.I have read the story before (a children's version) so knew how it ended. I can't decide whether that made a (positive) difference or not. Would I have enjoyed the parts I did enjoy as much if I didn't know where the story was going? I'm not sure.I have some more (unread) Charles Dickens on my Kindle. Will probably give him another try before I make a decision whether to continue reading his books or not.2I read it for school, but loved it nonethelessI read this book because it was on the AP suggested reading list. This book talks about terrible things, like torture and the French reign of terror, but the author uses such beautiful language that I never wanted to stop reading it. Each character is described so well that even the minor characters are unforgettable. I highly recommend the audio book that went with it as well.5Big sized book with tiny, tiny, font!I love the story and Dickens is my favorite author so I'm not giving him or the story 1 star, but this paperback 'book' format was horrible. The print is tiny with maybe a size 6 font (?) on a horrendously big 8x13 page (bigger than the size of printer paper) so you constantly lose your place when trying to move to the next line/row. Also, because this 'book' is soooo big and awkward in size (but again, with teeny tiny fonts!), you can't fit it into your purse -- you'd need a big tote or backpack to carry this around and it takes up too much space on any table/night stand to lay around. The seller did note dimensions in description so it was my fault for buying but who prints on 8x13 pages with 6 size fonts?! You could at least make the font super BIG for people with vision issues.1great book, fraudulent editionI don't know who is selling this edition through kindle, but it is NOT as Charles Dickens wrote it. It is written as if someone from another country , who doesn't speak English, translated the original. It is full of strange spellings, mis-translated words and poorly formed sentences. The word coach, as in the kind pulled by horses, was translated as mentor. No wonder I had no clue what was going on in the first five pages. I later bought the Amazon Classics edition, which is a proper edition.1
