    "It was the best of times and the worst of times." In one of the most famous openings of any novel, Dickens masterfully presents the turmoil of the French Revolution, which is the backdrop for a novel of love, patience, hope, and self-sacrifice. This version is read by Anton Lesser, whose award-winning Dickens recordings in their abridged form has now resulted in the opportunity to read the full unabridged text.

    G. House Sr. says: "Classic Home Run"
    "Masterful Narration"

    What made the experience of listening to A Tale of Two Cities the most enjoyable?

    Listening to DIckens is a special experience. I've switched between the written word and Audible as I've moved through the book, and I've newly appreciated how much I enjoy being read to, especially by someone as masterful as this narrator.


    What did you like best about this story?

    While I've read other Dickens, I'd never gotten around to A Tale of Two Cities and its a wonderful story of the French Revolution.


    What about Anton Lesser’s performance did you like?

    He captures the voices, the cadence, and the emotion. It's not "read," it is "performed."
