"A Tale of Two Cities" ~ Charles Dickens An absolute must read, in my opinion!!!

Dickens, never would be Christmas at our house until we read a Christmas Carol, and watch it on television, the Alistair Sim black and white version, along with A Childs Christmas in Wales and the 'choir from Kings College Cambridge'. Ahhh memories

Hard Times by Charles Dickens

my favorite classic - I love many Dickens books, but this is at the top of the list!

David Copperfields Jugendjahre, Stuttgart: Thienemann, [ca. 1910] Cover by Willy Planck.

This was amazing. I don't know what made the difference between great expectations and A Tale of Two Cities but I loved this one. Maybe its the context of revolution that is so compelling, maybe it is the fact that we studied this in-depth in my A.P. English class but I am in love with this book. The symbolism, motifs and themes are so vivid and compelling. I love it. I want to read it again and get my own copy and annotate it.

Love this book cover! - A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens. Penguin's Clothbound Classics with cover design by Coralie Bickford-Smith.

Diane Setterfield's debut novel. Gothic story that owes a debt to Daphne du Maurier and A.S. Byatt.
