A Tale of Two Cities Dickens, Charles Appleton Library 266 pp. The main purpose of this book is to show the contrasts between the peaceful city of London and the city of Paris, tearing itself apart in revolution. This is apparent in the very first line of the book, "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times...." This is a contrast of the two cities, London, the tranquil home of Mr. Lorry

you're looking to be kept on the edge of your seat, then I wouldn't really recommend this. However, this book has an fantastically intricate plot, and a pretty good ending. Overall I liked this book a lot and would recommend it to anyone who likes Dickens and is also interested by the time period surrounding the French Revolution. However, if you're looking for a cliffhanger full of action, this isn't really the book for you.
