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

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.
