Jim Weiss shares the essence of Dickens's A TALE OF TWO CITIES—from the storming of the Bastille at the start of the French Revolution to the intricate rescue of French aristocrat Charles Darnay from the vengeance of Madame Defarge and other revolutionaries. Weiss opens this "story of extremes" with insights into the life of Dickens, "a man who knew a thing or two about the good and evil people are capable of." This is a thrilling telling, and it’s amazing that it can be so eloquently and clearly condensed into a little over an hour, with the characters and settings, historic London and Paris, sharply delineated by a master storyteller.
