When the starving French masses rise in hate to overthrow a corrupt and decadent government, both the guilty and innocent become victims of their frenzied anger. Soon nothing stands in the way of the chilling figure they enlist for their cause—La Guillotine—the new invention for efficiently chopping off heads.
Charles Dickens' compelling portrait of the results of terror and treason, love and supreme sacrifice continues to captivate readers around the world. With Frank Muller's brilliant performance, unforgettable characters—the ever-knitting Madame Defarge, the lovely Lucie Manette, her broken father, the honorable Charles Darnay, and the sometimes scurrilous Sydney Carton—burst from the pages, full of life and passion.

Once you get into the meat of the story, you are riveted. The twists can make you laugh or cry or tear your hair out in frustration at the characters. You really become invested in the story, and the suspense is palpable.
Another unbearable classic. I just had to have a Dickens in my abandoned list.
After an hour of listening, nothing that interested me. No main characters were introduced, no plot established, the dialogues were pointless and boring.

Couldn't do it. I tried so hard. There were some great lines, but I couldn't care less about the characters. Sorry not sorry.
