    In this staple of classic literature, Charles Dickens tells the tale of fueding classes set at the inception and escalation of the French Revolution. Amidst the upheaval, righteous former aristocrat Charles Darnay becomes wrongly tangled in unfortunate events, endangering his freedom and family. Sidney Carton, a cynical lawyer who squandered his life away, seeks to redress his unhappiness through Darnay's beautiful wife, Lucie.

    Story
    Would you try another book from Charles Dickens and/or Jon Smith?

    I could not get into this book because of the speaker. It left the book a boring mess.


    What could Charles Dickens have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Chose a better reader.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Used someone who could of put more dramatics into the story rather than just a one pitch reader?


    What character would you cut from A Tale of Two Cities?

    None


    Any additional comments?

    That just about sums it up. I read the book myself years ago and loved the story then but the audiobook was a sad disapointment.
