Lindsay Waite, August 15, 2012 (view all comments by Lindsay Waite)
This is one of my favorite books. I re-read it recently. It is a timeless story of friendship, fairness, and honor. It always amazes me, when I read older literature, how these themes prevail. It is a story that brings forth the horrors of war, and shows how innocent people are caught in the net of revenge. "A Tale of Two Cities" is a permanent part of culture. How many of us have said: "It was the best of times; it was the worst of times...."? That classic beginning is only topped by the classic ending: "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." Dickens is a master of the written word, and it is worthwhile to go back to his words again and again. Each time, I gain something new.

THE REASON I LOVE ORANGES:

I first read A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens in 1969. My friend Bucky, a French-Canadian, gave me the book as a birthday present with a bouquet of daises, a blue balloon, and a wooden crate of oranges. We sat on the beach eating oranges from morning until sunset, reading A Tale of Two Cities to one another. It was one of my favorite birthdays. It is still one of my favorite books. It is probably the reason oranges are my favorite fruit.
