    A Tale of Two Cities is one of Charles Dickens's most exciting novels. Set against the backdrop of the French Revolution, it tells the story of a family threatened by the terrible events of the past. Doctor Manette was wrongly imprisoned in the Bastille for 18 years without trial by the aristocratic authorities.

    Would you listen to A Tale of Two Cities again? Why?

    This is a wonderful classic which vividly brings out the conditions in France just before the revolution.


    What did you like best about this story?

    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.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    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.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    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.

  • Three Men in a Boat (To Say Nothing of the Dog)

    Here is one of the greatest English comic novels read by incontrovertible king of English comic audiobook readers, Martin Jarvis. Three men, worried about their health and in search of different experiences, set off 'up the river' in a boat. Jerome's delightful novel, dating from 1900, paints a vivid picture of innocent fun.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Three Men in a Boat (To Say Nothing of the Dog) to be better than the print version?

    Yes, I definitely liked the audio version better than the print version.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was good overall, but no one incident stands out.


    What does Martin Jarvis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Jarvis' wonderful insertion of emotion and intonations added a lot of color to the story line and made it interesting.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, it was not the "un put downable" kind.
