Description

The novel depicts the plight of the French peasantry demoralised 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. It follows the lives of several characters through these events.

    From Gregorj58
    Different to me than Dicken's other works, but still true to his extraordinary vision of what mankind might aspire to be. Although the story is set 220 years ago, I always find Dickens to be a modern writer.

    is it even right to rate Dickens? I am exhausted from the beauty of his prose. This is the third time I have read this novel and it keeps getting better and more topical!
