    " I've read that book four years ago ... And I think that I must read it again . Tremendous story and great characters , Inquisitive non-like experience . In short ; Best of Dickens' novels ever . "

    " Oh Sydney. I love you, Sydney. You're my kind of wastrel. "

    " Not a book for me. Bored me to death and could not follow it very well. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Catrina | 1/27/2014

    " A delightful book from a different era. It was great to read a book from so long ago and get a glimpse of London & Paris before & during the French Revolution. I found Dickens British take on the French Revolution fascinating and wondered how objective it was. Many of the horrific things he describes the French doing were done by the British to the Scottish. But time lets that be forgotten. Definitely worth the read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan Mcaleer | 1/20/2014

    " I read this in high school and really loved it. However, as an adult, I cannot get past page 60. I keep trying, but oh well!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Colleen | 1/19/2014

    " So much about this book was different than I'd remembered it that I'm glad I revisited it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Roger Miller | 1/10/2014

    " I Love Charles Dickens. He may be one of the most profound Christian Writers. His writing flows and yet so descriptive. In such a long book every chapter is connected to a previous chapter. When Lucy and Dr. Mennete arrive in Paris during the revolution and can not figure out the comotion going on the outside is one of the most haunting scene of the madness violence creates! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Austin (AJ) Webster | 12/25/2013

    " I thought that this was one of Dickens' least impenetrable works. Engrossing, exciting, and compelling. "

    " Assigned during my freshman lit course in high school, I fell in love with this book. Easily on my top list of favorite books, this should definitely be on everyone's bucket list. "

    " I had a tough time following the first two thirds of the story. Some online consulting helped! The last third made up for it and it ended as a fantastic read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lorraine Blencoe | 11/30/2013

    " You can't detract from the quality of the writing! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Megan | 11/30/2013

    " and by finished i mean im done with this book for class and i wont be touching it again for a while. The bits i read were fantastically written, but class deadlines were impossible to meet. "

    " One of Dickens very best fill of excitement and actin between France and England. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ken Hastings | 8/10/2013

    " What an unexpected pleasure this has been. Reading the Kindle and listening on Audible, I have thoroughly enjoyed the time each day spent with this book. Dickens fleshes out every character to the fullest, weaving a tale that folds upon itself to a perfect, and unexpected, finish. An amazing story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah Khater | 8/4/2013

    " A book that I never get bored of. And every time it is read, it's almost as if it's the very first time again and again and again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nada | 6/18/2013

    " One of the best novels ever which antedated the French Revolution "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Heather Taylor | 4/14/2013

    " I know it's a classic. I was trying to listen to it while I worked and I couldn't follow it at all. Two hours in and I couldn't tell you what is was about so I gave up. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joseph Legaspi | 4/10/2013

    " The first half of the book is hard to get into. But once you settle into the story, you can't put this down. The final chapters are the most captivating sequence of chapters I've ever read. I only wish I got to see more of the relationship between the 3 main characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Therese Collins | 4/1/2013

    " Dickens is a wonderful writer in my opinion "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Grant Mortimer | 8/29/2012

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

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ruth | 8/22/2012

    " there is so much here and i keep uncovering more every time I reread it! I love the characters and the language. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jason Burggraaf | 8/21/2012

    " My first Dickens and a wonderful book. Have to admit I read it as people were saying that The Dark Knight Returns partly covered its plot. "

    " I read this in high school and couldn't stop crying. "

About the Author
Author Charles Dickens

Charles Dickens (1812–1870) was born in Landport, Portsmouth, England, the second of eight children in a family continually plagued by debt. A legacy brought release from the nightmare of debtors’ prison and child labor and afforded him a few years of formal schooling. He worked as an attorney’s clerk and newspaper reporter until his early writings brought him the amazing success that was to be his for the remainder of his life. He was the most popular English novelist of the Victorian era, and he remains popular, responsible for some of English literature’s most iconic characters.
