"It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done...."
With these words and a superb act of bravery and sacrifice, one of the most badly behaved heroes of all time ends Charles Dickens' great tale of the French Revolution.
This is a firework display of a book, a crackling picture of the ravages and excesses of starving, furious men and the astonishing acts of heroism that usually accompany them.

I have read Tale of Two Cities as well as listened to audio versions of the book. My favorite telling was done by Frank Muller. I found this version quite by accident, just scrolling and "window shopping" if you will. I was drawn to the telłing immediately. Andrew Sachs reading is low key and relaxed. It is if he is inviting the narrator to join him in witnessing what he is reading. I strongly urge any who love reading Dickens to listen to Andrew Sachs reading of this great work. It is a good match.m
I only wish I could have all of Dickens' books read by Andrew Sachs! He expertly transmitted the warmth, gravity, humor, delicacy, chilling evil, affection, horror, grace, subtlety, cleverness, and love that imbues A Tale of Two Cities. Never overdone, pitch perfect!
A timeless tale of historic love and hate.
Beautifully performed. A must listen.
Had to listen to some bits more than once.
