Human story of the French Revolution, a time of terror and treason, when a starving population rose in fury to overthrow a corrupt and decaying regime.

‘It was the best of times, it was the worst of times..’
The story of Lucie Manette—the daughter of an English doctor, the mystifying Charles Darnay—the nephew of a marquis and the unfathomable Sydney Carton—Darnay’s lawyer, a Tale of Two cities works its way through London and Paris and brings before the reader the most remarkable saga of love, chaos, duality and uprising, all in the backdrop of the French Revolution.
First published in thirty-one weekly installments in 1859, this is Dickens’ best known work of historical fiction.
