I always think of this novel whenever I watch Casablanca. If you've seen it, you might notice a few similarities in their plots, with the striking part being the redeeming sacrifices in their endings, done on account of love. When Rick Blaine lets Isla Lund go off with Victor Laszlo, both proponents of a problematic love triangle, I see Sydney Carton being led to the guillotine to die instead of Charles Darnay, both of whom are in love with Lucy Manette. In both cases, you could easily argue that the former loves more than the latter, and that's why that one has to be the one to die for it, because it's the only way to save the girl. "Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own", as Heinlein put it in Stranger in a Strange Land, but I would go so far as to say that love is putting another's happiness above your own, in effect, eradicating your own happiness if necessary. Would a parent do any less for her or his child? Sure, it's unfair, but love often happens that way. ( )

clásico literario que entrelaza las realidades de Londres y París durante la Revolución Francesa. Dickens presenta un panorama de personajes cuyas vidas se ven afectadas por los turbulentos eventos de la época. Con una prosa cautivadora, el autor ofrece una profunda exploración de la condición humana, la injusticia social y el sacrificio. La narrativa envolvente y los giros inesperados mantienen al lector intrigado hasta la última página, convirtiendo esta obra en un tesoro perdurable de la literatura universal. ( )

Had sydney carton in my locker in high-school, perhaps the root of my being interested in men who drink too much?
One of my favorite dickens, and I like them all ( )

Great beginning, great ending, too many words in the middle.

Brilliant characters though. That Mme. Defarge? *shivers* ( )

'It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, ...'. So begins Dickens' novel set in London and Paris at and around the time of the French Revolution. Dr. Alexandre Manette is released from his imprisonment in the Bastille and moves to London to get to know his daughter Lucie, whom he has never met. Manette has a hard time reintegrating into life outside of his prison cell, but finally manages because of the love of and to his daughter. Lucie has two suitors, Sidney Carton and Charles Darnay. The former is a London-based lawyer and the latter is a French aristocrat who comes to London under a different name to hide his relation to the French Marquis St. Evrémonde, who is not liked much in France. Both confess their love to Lucie and she ends up marrying and having a child with Darnay. Upon Darnay's return to France, the Terror is in full reign and he is arrested for emigrating to England and imprisoned immediately. The Manettes travel to France to help Darnay and get him out of prison. I will deliberately not go into further detail here so as not to spoil more of the plot than I have already done. Suffice it to say that as the plot progresses further relations between the characters are revealed and Dickens cleverly works with contrast, as the first sentence of the novel promises.

Approaching A Tale of Two Cities I only knew the famous first sentence and that it is one of the most famous novels ever written. I read the Penguin Classics version with notes in the back and when I first started I was quite taken aback at the amount of notes for only the first few pages. This made it somewhat hard to get into the novel, but once I was a few pages in I was actually gripped with what was happening. Overall, I found the notes quite helpful as they provide interesting background information about certain conventions at the time and historical background about the French Revolution. What I liked most about the novel is how the characters are developed and how the web of entanglement among them is created. My plot summary does not even mention the Defarges, Mr. Lorry and Jerry Cruncher, who are also quite important to the story. I enjoyed this aspect of personal stories and individual fates set against the backdrop of life during the times of the French Revolution very much. 4.5 stars. ( )

Sometimes an old photograph, and old friend, an old letter will remind you that you are not who you once were, for the person who dwelt among them, valued this, chose that, wrote thus, no longer exists. Without noticing it you have traversed a great distance; the strange has become familiar and familiar if not strange at least awkward or uncomfortable.

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way—in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.
