    After 18 years as a political prisoner in the Bastille, the aging Dr. Manette is finally released and reunited with his daughter in England.

    Overall

    i've read almost every dickens novel and enjoyed them all. dickens, like no other author i've read, breathes life into his characters.

    the one problem i've had is that i read his stories with my american paradigm. i am incapable of experiencing his stories through dickens' own context.

    with the narration done on this audiobook, i feel i've been able to hear the proper characterization of his characters and have felt more in tune with the story. the narrator skillfully articulates the voices of the french and english characters, women and men, in a way that absolutely makes them come alive.

    i've listed to this audiobook about five times in its entirety over the past year, and love it each time.
