really liked it

In my pursuit of literature on the French Revolution, A Tale of Two Cities is one of my favorites. While everyone knows Dickens can be verbose at times, he is very descriptive of these times and seasons, and of many historic locations (including the Bastille, which is no longer visible in Paris). I particularly enjoyed the story's intertwining of lives of families in both London and Paris. Sidney Cardon is my favorite character, who in the end, demonstrates the greatness of humanity, for which he is remembered for generations.
