The novel has sold over 200 million copies making it the bestselling novel of all time. The novel depicts the plight of the French peasantry demoralised by the French aristocracy in the years leading up to the revolution, the corresponding brutality demonstrated by the revolutionaries toward the former aristocrats in the early years of the revolution, and many unflattering social parallels with life in London during the same period. It follows the lives of several characters through these events., A tale of two cities /Charles Dickens ; adapted by Marian Leighton ; illustrations by Brendan Lynch., A tale of two cities /Charles Dickens ; with an introduction by Frederick Busch and a new afterword by A.N.

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times." It was the time of the French Revolution, a time of great change and great danger. 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. Against this tumultuous historical backdrop, Dickens' dramatic story of adventure and courage unfolds. Unjustly imprisoned for eighteen years in the Bastille, Dr. Alexandre Manette is reunited with his daughter, the gentle Lucie Manette, and safely transported from France to England. It would seem that they could now take up the threads of their lives in peace. As fate would have it, however, the two are summoned to the Old Bailey to testify against a young Frenchman, Charles Darnay, falsely accused of treason. Strangely enough, Darnay bears an uncanny resemblance to another man in the courtroom: Sydney Carton, a dissolute barrister. It is a coincidence that saves Darnay from certain doom more than once, as the two men's fates become intertwined with that of the Revolution. And there is Madame Defarge, a female revolutionary who has an implacable grudge against the aristocratic Evrm̌onde dynasty and who knits as she watches the beheadings. The storming of the Bastille, the death carts with their doomed human cargo, the swift drop of the blade of La Guillotine-this is the French Revolution that Charles Dickens vividly captures. Brilliantly plotted, the novel is rich in drama, romance, and heroics that culminate in a daring prison escape in the shadow of the guillotine., Streaming audio, Streaming audio., System requirements: 200 MB of free disk space, 512 MB of RAM, Windows Installer 3.1, Microsoft .NET Framework 4 (x86 and x64), Windows Media Player 10 QA., The fortunes of two men - Charles Darnay, an exiled French aristocrat and Sydney Carton, a disreputable but brilliant English laywer - become entwined through their love for Lucie Manette., The storming of the Bastille...the death carts with their doomed human cargo...the swift drop of the guillotine blade -- this is the French Revolution that Charles Dickens vividly captures in his famous work, A Tale of Two Cities. With dramatic eloquence, he brings to life a time of terror and treason, a starving people rising in frenzy and hate to overthrow a corrupt and decadent regime. With insight and compassion, he casts his novel of unforgettable scenes with unforgettable characters: the sinister Madame Defarge, knitting her patterns of death; the gentle Lucie Manette, unswerving in her devotion to her broken father; the heroic Sydney Carton, who gives his life for the love of a girl who would never be his., Thorndike Press large print classics., Title from title screen (viewed April 27, 2011)., Unabridged., VIAC, War stories., Waterville, Me. :Thorndike Press ;Bath, England :Chivers,c2005., Y/HILT F DICKE, Z0VIA, Z2252Recorded Books, ZE6392Blackstone Audio, [Ashland, Or.] :Blackstone Audio,p2011., [Fic], [Prince Frederick, Md.] :[Distributed by] OneClick Digital,[2011], [United States] :Author's Republic :2016., [United States] :Blackstone Audio :2011., [United States] :Dreamscape Media, LLC :2015., aaf02-08-17ma-, analog, audios, caf01-25-11ma-, caf01-25-11mh6, computerc, cyf04-24-12ma-, data file, digital, e-fr---, e-fr---e-uk-en, e-uk-ene-fr---, hoopla digital., https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/aut_9781518933103_180.jpeg, https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/bsa_9781483090412_180.jpeg, https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/dsa_9781681417448_180.jpeg, lcac, ocm01867360, ocm07536011, online resourcecr, othersz, qafea06-08-17mn-, qafea06-29-16mn-, qafea10-14-16mn-, qafea11-04-15mn-, spoken wordspw, texttxt, unmediatedn, volumenc, ℗1986.
