This is a wonderful classic which vividly brings out the conditions in France just before the revolution.
The one thing which clearly comes out of the story amidst all the deep shades of good and evil is the human side - their capacity to do both good and evil, to rise up in love and stoop down in malice - the author has beautifully shown how both co-exist.
The scene where Sidney Carton kisses the child of Lucy and murmurs his expectation to be remembered by the family just before leaving brought tears to my eyes.
This is a pretty long book, and not of the type where you don't want to leave it wondering what will happen next. Moreover, I had read the book, so knew the story. This is a pure classic where you move along the narration at at an easy pace, and pick up seamlessly from where you stopped last time.
Yes, I definitely liked the audio version better than the print version.
It was good overall, but no one incident stands out.
Jarvis' wonderful insertion of emotion and intonations added a lot of color to the story line and made it interesting.
No, it was not the "un put downable" kind.
