rachel ☾ (typedtruths) | 8557 comments A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens

After eighteen years as a political prisoner in the Bastille, the ageing Doctor Manette is finally released and reunited with his daughter in England. There the lives of two very different men, Charles Darnay, an exiled French aristocrat, and Sydney Carton, a disreputable but brilliant English lawyer, become enmeshed through their love for Lucie Manette. From the tranquil roads of London, they are drawn against their will to the vengeful, bloodstained streets of Paris at the height of the Reign of Terror, and they soon fall under the lethal shadow of La Guillotine.

Cinthia | 5702 comments Pg 237. "It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done;"

Just like the beginning. "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times,". I didn't know this book held the famous quotes.

Epilogue.. So this book did not sa epilogue but Sydney gave us a glimpse of it. I'm glad to know he was honored.

As much as I loved this book I have to agree with you there. It became a little monotone in the few first chapters but it does pick up.
