Set in London and Paris before and during the French Revolution, A Tale of Two Cities depicts the plight of the French peasantry under the demoralization of the French aristocracy in the years leading up to the revolution, the corresponding brutality demonstrated by the revolutionaries toward the former aristocrats in the early years of the revolution, and a number of unflattering social parallels with life in London during the same time period.

It follows the lives of several protagonists through these events, most notably Charles Darnay, a French once-aristocrat who falls victim to the indiscriminate wrath of the revolution despite his virtuous nature, and Sydney Carton, a dissipated British barrister who endeavours to redeem his ill-spent life out of love for Darnay's wife, Lucie Manette.

    " Each time I read it there is something new I notice, and then I realize there is even more to understand. It's quite deep. I'm not a history person but the writing style makes it feel as though you're living it - so its not even the past. Worth the read each time. "
