The story of "A Tale of Two Cities" is set in the late 18th Century in London and Paris, before and during the French Revolution. It was a time when injustice was met by a lust for vengeance, and rarely was a distinction made between the innocent and the guilty. It was published in weekly installments from April 1859 to November 1859 in Dickens's new literary periodical titled 'All the Year Round'. This novel is regarded as one of Dickens's most popular and most innovative works.
After eighteen years as a political prisoner in the Bastille the aging Dr Manette is finally released and reunited with his daughter in England. There, two very different men, Charles Darnay, an exiled French aristocrat, and Sydney Carton, a disreputable but brilliant English lawyer, become enmeshed through their love for Lucie Manette. From the tranquil lanes of London, they are all drawn against their will to the vengeful, bloodstained streets of Paris at the height of the Reign of Terror and soon fall under the lethal shadow of La Guillotine.
The book is perhaps best known for its opening lines, «It was the best of times, it was the worst of times," and for Carton's last speech, in which he says of his replacing Darnay in a prison cell, «It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done; it is a far, far better rest that I go to, than I have ever known.»

Reading this book was truly the best of times and the worst of times! And I totally loved that!
The first and the most obvious theme of this novel is the French Revolution and the formation of the new Republic. But like in all of his novels Dickens explores society. It's a novel about people and their families. It's a novel about loyalty and justice, suffering and judgement. In other words, it's a novel about life.
Surely, it's not an easy book to read but it doesn't mean you won't enjoy it. For starters, Charles Dickens is the King of Style. Not only does he describe scenes vividly but he also uses, no, make that manipulates the language to make scenes come alive. He's the master of sentence-building. If that is not enough, then how about an amazingly twisted plot? You'll get a couple of surprises along the way, that's for sure.
To round up my review, I would like to put down a quote from the novel. "Of little worth as life is when we misuse it, it is worth that effort." And so is spending a few hours reading "A tale of two cities".

The most frightening, yet the most beautiful description of the carnage of the French Revolution.

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way-in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.
In all weathers, in the snow and frost of winter, in the bitter winds of spring, in the hot sunshine of summer, in the rains of autumn, and again in the snow and frost of winter, Lucie passed two hours of every day at this place; and every day on leaving it, she kissed the prison wall. Her husband saw her (so she learned from her father) it might be once in five or six times: it might be twice or thrice running: it might be, not for a week or a fortnight together. It was enough that he could and did see her when the chances served, and on that possibility she would have waited out the day, seven days a week.
we had everything before us, we had nothing before us
