"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times..." Dickens's story of The Terror of the French Revolution tells of its impact on the honorable gentle Charles Darnay and the drunk, good-for-nothing Sydney Carton, both of whom are devoted to the same woman. This excellent full-cast radio dramatization captures the turbulence of the times. Dr. Manette ("105, North Tower") is a standout as his life takes him from madness upon release from the Bastille to contentment when he is happily reconnected with his daughter. Maybe Charles Dance (Sydney Carton) is the only narrator we've heard of in this production, but it wouldn't hurt to tell us the rest. A.B. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 06]
