Its a serious tale that Dickens likens to the times in which it was written ... where many convicts were taken to the guillotine in the public square. Lucie Manette becomes acquainted with her father (Dr. Manette) who is insane after spending her whole lifetime in prison. Two look-alike men (Charles Darnay and Sydney Carton) are in love with Lucie and one gives his life for the other because of his love for her. Madade Defarge knits code into her work to hide away the words of spies. From the 1st well-known sentence to the last, this is an intense read.

Dickens at his best. I love this book about the epic struggle and rebellion during the French Revolution. It's a great story about sacrifice and love.
