A Tale of Two Cities

First published in 1859, A Tale of Two Cities unfolds in Paris and London around the time of the French Revolution. Two very different men, Charles Darnay, an exiled French aristocrat, and Sydney Carton, a disreputable but brilliant English lawyer, become enmeshed through their love for Lucie Manette. From the tranquil lanes of London, they are all drawn against their will to the vengeful, bloodstained streets of Paris at the height of the Reign of Terror and soon fall under the lethal shadow of La Guillotine.

This title is part of a wonderful new series, Express Classics, offering a quick way into a range of exciting stories. Fast-moving and accessible, each story is a shortened, dramatically illustrated version of the classic novel, which loses none of the strength and flavour of the original. Express Classics include biographical details of the original author and an 8 page glossary.
