With well over 200 million copies sold, it ranks among the most famous works in the history of fictional literature. The novel depicts the plight of the French peasantry demoralized by 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 many unflattering social parallels with life in London during the same time period.

    " Great literature book. Dickens is a great example who used sytax, repetition, about all literary devices perfectly. I give it a 4 because. I disliked. How he doomed a character :( great book overall. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Matt | 1/17/2014

    " Got halfway through, gave up. Impossible to maintain interest in this book. I loved David Copperfield, though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paul Lizarraga | 1/14/2014

    " My favorite of Dickens thus far. One of the best endings in literature. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tomas Bensoni | 1/12/2014

    " It was very interesting to see a personal view of what oppression will do to the downtrodden, and the cruelties the persecuted masses will return upon those who treated them as animals when the power changes hands. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emma Hoyle | 1/10/2014

    " Only book I've read several times. Best Dickens by far (except for A Christmas Carol, of course!). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Selena | 12/29/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ugo Agada-uyah | 12/10/2013

    " i learned more about the tragedies of the French revolution from this one book than from any history book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elyse | 11/6/2013

    " More of 3.5. The last quarter of the book was perfect, but in typical Dickens style the 1st quarter was so bogged down in detail. In the words of my friend, "I am afraid I will always like Dickens more as a character on Doctor Who, than an actual author." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lia Marcoux | 10/28/2013

    " In all of literature, is there any purer expression of love. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Violet | 7/25/2013

    " A high school read. Loved it although it was long and involved but the characters and their struggle to survive the times made an excellent story. Enjoyed reading it in a class where everything was discussed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kara Ragan | 2/22/2013

    " A favorite from high school and still love it. Challenging read in both structure and content. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rmae | 12/14/2012

    " A timeless book indeed! I wish that every people would be like Sydney Carton, a very loving man who sacrificed for his love ones. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Grant Mortimer | 1/13/2012

    " Fantastic plot but I feel like it contains a lot of unnecessary words and could be more succinct and still convey everything. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Doug | 11/8/2011

    " sandwiched in between 2 of the most memorable lines in literature is a fairly mediocre story. it was so much better when I was reading it as a child "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barbara | 11/7/2011

    " This is one of the best books written about this period in history, along with allowing the noblest quality of man to come forth. "Tis a far, far better thing I do ....." "

    " This book completely changed how I look at the world, my place in it and the war of populism v. liberty. At the end, I wanted to jump up and shout, "I get it now!" "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary | 11/3/2011

    " Dickens was a genius! I read the first paragraph again and thought how current it is. Glad I picked it up again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Squeaky | 10/30/2011

    " Dickens certainly uses a lot of words to accomplish his task. I'd like to read this edited by a modern author. Heresy, I'm sure! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chiyomi | 10/28/2011

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 M-C :P | 10/28/2011

    " This book takes place during the French Revolution. The language can be hard to understand, but it's one of the best books that I have ever read. Absolutely love Charles Dickens!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 10/18/2011

    " This book was hard work in the beginning! I'm glad I pushed through it though. Once I got to the last 1/3 of the book I couldn't put it down. It was so interesting to see how everything turned out in the complicated storyline that Dickens set up. "
