This is part of a series of top posts from 2012.
My #10 most viewed post from this last year was A Tale of Two Cities.
Here is the beginning of that post:
Iâ€™ve always loved reading Dickens and I finally took the time to read through A Tale of Two Cities. While it has a much different flavor than some of his other work, it is no less vibrant or moving. If youâ€™re not familiar with the book, itâ€™s opening lines are probably something you are aware of: â€œIt was the best of times, it was the worst of times.â€ So begins a brutally honest look at the French revolution and both sides of fallen humanity that made it happen. Dickens does a fair job at showing the neglect of the rich for others and the blood lust of the poor for revenge.
