Publisher's Summary

David Timson talks about Charles Dickens, much loved for his great contribution to classic English Literature. Listen to A Tale of Two Cities narrated by Anton Lesser.

"It was the best of times and the worst of times." In one of the most famous openings of any novel, Dickens masterfully presents the turmoil of the French Revolution, which is the backdrop for a novel of love, patience, hope, and self-sacrifice. This version is read by Anton Lesser, whose award-winning Dickens recordings in their abridged form has now resulted in the opportunity to read the full unabridged text. His singular characterizations led to him being chosen by Peter Ackroyd to play Dickens himself in the major TV account of the writer.

Listen to A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens.

    "Disappointing"
    What disappointed you about The Novels of Charles Dickens: An Introduction by David Timson to A Tale of Two Cities?

    I guess I misread the description and to me, the introduction was a total waste of time. A Tale of Two Cities is a book I have read several times previously and I was hoping listening to this would bring it more alive to me. It seemed a very superficial introduction


    Would you ever listen to anything by David Timson again?

    I didn't have a problem with David Timson's narration; I just have to be more careful in reading the description before purchasing and Timson book.


    How could the performance have been better?

    It wasn't the performance that was a problem for me; it was the content. There were a few excerpts quoted and the characters just didn't seem real.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I had read a lot about Dickens previously and the introduction did add a little (a very little) to what I already know.


    Any additional comments?

    A waste of money. Get the complete version of this novel, not the introduction.
