Arguably Dickens's most widely read and best loved book, this has everything you need for a marvelous heart-rending story of redemption and resurrection. The real hero is Sydney Carton, the drunken, idle lawyer whose love for Lucie Manette lifts him to nobility when he sacrifices himself, not simply to save her, but to save his rival, Charles Darnay, the man she loves. Only Dickens could pull this off. Full of memorable characters--from the bloodthirsty Madame Defarge to her British equal, Miss Pross. the story is brought to life with feeling, immediacy, and wit by John Lee. Dickens's work lends itself exquisitely to being read aloud, and Lee makes the most of a wonderful book. D.G. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 02]
