    Hundreds thousands of stories long to have a uotable verse just one Tale of Two Cities Dickens masterpiece as far as I'm concerned is bookended by two of the most recognizable uotes in all of English language This is also the darkest story I have read of his and no doubt it's about the bloody French Revolution and Dickens spares none of his acerbic wit to demonize what was rightly demonic Yet to his credit and genius neither does

    Most satisfying ending in the English language Yes the last line is a classic It is a far far better thing concluding in astonishingly concise language for Dickens the peace and redemption of the story's most poignant romantic hero But this novel delivers such a gratifying experience because there are in fact many characters who cover significant emotional ground in their journey to love one woman as best they can Lucie'

A Tale of Two Cities

Of London they are drawn against their will to the vengeful bloodstained streets of Paris at the height of the Reign of Terror and they soon fall under the lethal shadow of La Guillotine. It was the best of times it was the worst of times it was the age of wisdom it was the age of foolishness it was the epoch of belief it was the epoch of incredulity it was the season of Light it was the season of Darkness it was the spring of hope it was the winter of despair we had everything before us we had nothing before us we were all going direct to Heaven we were all going direct the other way Another classic down The copy of this book that I read I have owned since middle schoolhigh school so it has been with me for about 25 years I figured it was about time to get to itThe book is divided into three parts and when I got to the end of part two which is a little over 200 pages into the book I was sure I was going to give the book 2 stars Not that I was kidding myself that Dickens would be an easy read but I had to force myself back into the book every day because I knew it would end up being a choreThen I hit part threeIt is all worth it for part three Part three by itself is 5 stars all the way so I averaged out my overall rating to 4 stars If you are struggling with the beginning like I did don t give up I hope that you find the ending as interesting and engaging as I didAlso thanks again to Shmoop for helping me along the way with chapter summaries I didn t have to read a summary of every chapter but there were a few that had me scratching my head so it was very helpful having a place I could go for help Finally while I started my review with one of the most famous beginning uotes in literature I didn t realize that the famous uote that ends this book was from Dickens I will end my review with it but I am not marking it with a spoiler so if you want to avoid knowing what it is don t look down It is a far far better thing that I do than I have ever done it is a far far better rest that I go to than I have ever known

After eighteen years as a political prisoner in the Bastille the ageing Doctor Manette is finally released and reunited with his daughter in England There the lives of two very different. It is a far far better thing that I do than I have ever done it is a far far better rest that I go to than I have ever known It rarely happens that a uote from a book haunts me but this one well this one does I finished A Tale of Two Cities about two weeks ago yet I m still not over the ending But how could I After all this is one of those rare books that keep you thinking even after you finished the last page and already closed the cover of the book The most intriguing thing about this all is the following though I had a really really tough time getting into A Tale of Two Cities when I first started to read it XD The sentences were too long and complicated and Dickens writing style is lengthy and so full of superfluous words that every editor no matter the century shehe lives in would have had a field day crossing them out lol O Miss Manette when the little picture of a happy father s face looks up in yours when you see your own bright beauty springing up anew at your feet think now and then that there is a man who would give his life to keep a life you love beside you So what happened I can t explain it but I think Dickens s magic happened At least that s the only thing I can come up with while I m trying to explain my sudden love for this book I mean we have a little bit of comedy in here when three different suitors attempt to ask for Lucy Manettes hand yet at the same time Doctor Manette s mental condition is making the situation as serious as it could possibly be What can I do for my friend No man ever can have been desirious in his heart to serve a friend than I am to serve mine if I knew how Every character in here is either an angel Miss Manette or a precious snowflake Mr Lorry Charles Darnay or it s bloodthirsty and evil Madame Defarge The Maruis There is no grey area well not unless you count Sydney Carton who is by far the most intriguing character in the entire book I loved him 3 Yes he might have been a drunkard and I m pretty sure he suffered from depression but of all the characters that made an appearance in A Tale of Two Cities he s certainly the most honourable and pure soul It is too late for that I shall never be better than I am I shall sink lower and be worse And this Ladies and Gentleman is the true tragedy of this book That Sydney thinks he s worth nothing even though he DESERVES THE FREAKING WORLD Excuse my screaming but ADKFASKDFKASDFKSDFKASD I get all emotional just thinking about this lovable man He is worthy he is wantable to hell with it I m actually going to compare him to my precious boy Adam Parrish now LOL Both of them deserve so much and they are always trying to fit in to make their life better yet there s always something that holds them back That makes their lives difficult You are a good man and a true friend said Carton in an altered voice Forgive me if I notice that you are affected I could not see my father weep and sit by careless And I could not respect your sorrow if you were my father You are free from that misfortune however No one notices the struggle he s going through and a lot of people judge him for his actions Not outright into his face but behind his back Truth be told I think Miss Manette might have been the only person who ever got a decent glimpse at his true character and nature And this only because he let her see it Because he loved her and because he wanted her to know that there was a part of him the part that loved her that actually was worthy of her love as well TT I would ask you dearest to be very generous with him always and very lenient on his faults when he is not by I would ask you to believe that he has a heart he very very seldom reveals and that there are deep wounds in it My dear I have seen it bleeding But we re in the time of the guillotine the time of change of libert galit et fraternit And forgiveness and compassion let alone justice aren t truly on the agenda People like the Maruis had no mercy with their subjects and their former servants pay them back in kind Unfortunately this also means that innocent people regardless of their actions and their lack of involvement are sentenced to death as well Casualties in a war that gained momentum way too fast And so it happens that the storyline swells to a crescendo that ends in a climax I didn t expect Boy did that ending throw me OoIt was a beautiful ending tragic but beautiful hopeful and sad And it taught me that Dickens was indeed a great writer view spoiler Are you dying for him she whispered And his wife and child Hush Yes O you will let me hold your brave hand stranger Hush Yes my poor sister to the last I cried an ocean reading this scene Sydney Carton deserved so much better than that What a noble and gentle and compassionate soul What a brave man that gives comfort while he s going to his death as well I can t even TT I just can t cries and ocean again hide spoiler
