Publisher's Summary

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.

A wonderful classic... ruined

Unfortunately, a super tale ruined by the narrator, the voice, the speed and the diction. Not at all the Dickensian classic that we’ve all come to know and love...
It’s was the worse of times......

Dire

Could not bear the narrator's voice which I found to be inconsistent in speed and generally rushed. Ruined a classic for me. Just my opinion.

Permission required?!?

This recording begins by telling you it may not be stored on any electronic device without written permission from the publisher. Say, wha...???
The narrator has a North American accent and his upbeat “welcome to the show” intonation for the famous first line of this novel put me off completely. Just my personal preference.

Disappointing

After listening to 8 Dickens books previously on Audible and enjoying them, this one was a massive disappointment, the characters weren’t really developed and the storyline waffled on at times that it became very frustrating.
I wouldn’t recommend this book to anyone as it would probably put them off Charles Dickens books forever.
