I have to agree with Charles Dickens. I do not wish to ruin this story (and this would be quite the book to summarize), so I will not reveal much of its plot. I will merely say that it is set in both England and France during the time just before and then the beginning of the French Revolution. The political details are quite accurate, the characters (even secondary ones) are well developed, the narrative is amazing (uplifting, depressing, humorous, terrifying, and poetic), and the love story is pure and beautiful (i.e. marriage), not something obscene and disgusting.
‘It was the best of times, it was the worst of times…’
Those immortal words describe this book.
You will (probably) enjoy the best of times while reading this book.
You will miss out on one of the best of times, and thus almost suffer the worst of times, if you pass on this story.
