A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times…”

So starts A Tale of Two Cities, one of the most celebrated classics of all time. This novel is historical fiction, taking place around the time of the French Revolution. We follow the characters in Paris and London as things go crazy and people’s heads start getting chopped off.

Very good book; obviously there’s a reason why people are still gushing over it after 150 years! Definitely for you if you like history, political and cultural commentary, and/or drama!
