Publisher Comments:

The epic story of two cities and two men. Charles Darnay and Sydney Carton are alike in appearance, very different in character, but in love with the same woman. Darnay, who has abandoned the cruelty of the French nobility for London, must return to Paris during the violent Revolution to rescue his faithful servant from the guillotine. But what part does Carton play in the dramatic events that follow?

Synopsis:

The "two cities" of the title are Paris and London. Dr Manette has been confined for 18 years in the Bastille because he found out the Marquis de Evremonde and his brother had ill treated a girl and mortally wounded a young boy. He has just been released and brought to England.

If you are new to Dickens, this is a good place to start! Dickens is masterful in his creation of characters, and the plot is intriguing! I especially liked the complex character of Sydney Carton.
I hope you enjoy the book!
