The Great Admissions Reading Challenge 2: Book 42: A Tale of Two Cities

A classic novel by Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities is the story of the run up to the French Revolution in 1790’s London and Paris. The story particularly follows the lives of Dr. Manette, who was imprisoned in the Bastille for 18 years, his daughter Lucie, whom he’d never met until his release, and her husband Charles Darnay. I admit I grew to hate the sly Madame Defarge and her husband, who profess to be proponents of the revolution, “Liberté! Égalité! Fraternité!,” but mostly misuse their power over the mob to do away with those whom they dislike. Still, a good, fast read.
