  • A Tale of Two Cities begins on a muddy English road in an atmosphere charged with mystery and drama, and it ends in the Paris of the French Revolution with one of the most famous acts of self-sacrifice in literature. In between lies one of Charles Dickens<U+2019>s most exciting books<U+2013> a historical novel that, generation after generation, has given readers access to the profound human dramas that lie behind cataclysmic social and political events.
