Overview

A beautifully tailored, collectable edition of a beloved Dickens classic

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times . . . Lucie Manette has been separated from her father for 18 years while he languished in Paris's most feared prison, the Bastille. Finally reunited, the Manettes' fortunes become inextricably intertwined with those of two men, the heroic aristocrat Darnay and the dissolute lawyer Carton. Their story, which encompasses violence, revenge, love and redemption, is grippingly played out against the backdrop of the terrifying brutality of the French Revolution.

Reviews

"It is really one of his best. There are passages so spattered with violence and blood that you look out for the red blotches on the page in front of you...brilliantly plotted" - A.N. Wilson - Daily Telegraph

"Dickens's story of love, espionage and Anglo-French relations" - - Scotsman

"Dickens's magnificent account of the revolution and one of his best (and shortest) novels" - - Observer
