I had not read this book since high school, but I remembered enjoying it then. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this classic again. The story and narration were great. Of course, this is a classic book, so expect more detailed descriptions and longer periods between action than you typically find in a modern book.
Simon Vance is one of the best Audible readers. He is good at bringing to life both the male and female voices without sounding too distracting.
I dont think anything.
Probably not. Would be leary.
The guy who read for Harry Potter books maybe, yet the story is..... well there is no story, just jumps around all over the place and you wonder what is this book supposed to be about??? What is the tale of each of two cities???
frustration, waste of time, waste of a credit
I never realized how utterly entertaining Charles Dickens is...the characters are so well developed and SUCH characters! I will be listening to this one many times.
The disgusting picture of the women knitting as they counted heads being chopped off. But the dramatic and exciting ending was the best.
i was looking forward to this book; very disappointed... I don't know why people give it such a high ratings. I only managed to get thought 30% before i gave up...
One of my favorites of all time. I love Dickens, and TTC is Dickens at his best. All that said, the narration is like the rest of the immersion reads, mediocre, which would normally be okay, but such a book needs a good narrator.
read this in high school and have quoted the lines:: it was the best of times..... and.... it is a far far.... Listening to it again at 65 have it more meaning as life experiences along the way make the characters feeing so much mite real. at this age one can so much better understand. great book. everyone should have the experience of reading when young and then later in life!
I remember reading this in high school and being surprised by Dickens poetry. Yet it's taken me almost thirty years to return to the book. More than its famous opening and closing lines, the book asks important questions about who we are and what is justice. The narrator does a great job distinguishing all the different characters. I often lose track of Dickens bewildering, sprawling casts of characters, but odd not have that problem with this presentation.
