A finely honed masterpiece! I love Dickens' novels, but I do not usually expect them to be as pristine and disciplined and poetic as this novel of redemption and resurrection. Dualities throughout--two cities, two classes of people, two philosophies, a man and his double, sin and redemption, death and resurrection, characters with dual identities, old and young, bound and free, and on and on and on. I think Dickens just about reached perfection in this, his twelfth novel.

Evalyn I agree. I read this for the first time last year and I was very moved by the story, the writing, everything.
