The Best and The Worst.

I am not quite sure what to say about Charles Dickens' A Tale of Two Cities. On one hand the book was really good. The story was amazing, at times i was on the egde of my seat, so to speak, wanting to know how things would turn out. The character develop was extremely well done. I can't imagine Dickens would have become famous with this not being true of his books. However, the book at times was confusing. Many of the characters had several different names that they went by. So i was constantly trying to figure out who was being talked about. To compound this problem the book reads very slow. If you are the type of person that won't continue reading unless you are hooked within the first few pages, don't even bother trying to read this book. But like i said, the story is amazing so if you can if you can get through the slowness of the book i recommend reading A Tale of Two Cities.

There is a monty python sketch where a customer in a bookshop is looking for a Sale of Two Titties. Sadly they don't have the book.
