A Tale of Two Cities (Annotated) by Charles Dickens & J.P. Riley digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

Charles Dickens' story "A Tale of Two Cities" has been adapted in the following ways:

  • Prefaced with historical context
  • Events leading up to the French Revolution are analyzed within the novel, showcasing their representation.
  • Events include: The Fall of Bastille, The September Massacres, King Louis XVI's Execution, and The Reign of Terror
  • Beautiful new cover design


In Dickens's timeless classic "A Tale of Two Cities", two cities bursting with action and turmoil as the French Revolution rages provide a brilliant setting for a riveting story of love, sacrifice, and redemption. Amid the turmoil of the revolution, the two different cities' characters collide and intermingle in unforeseen ways. Either at the aristocratic Parisian salons or the lively streets of London, the novel follows the dynamic paths of CHARLES DARNAY, a French going into exile with a secret, and SYDNEY CARTON, a lost and purposeless English lawyer.


With revolutionaries storming the Bastille and the guillotine reigning death, Dickens deftly braids their fates, the subjects of social injusticepolitical tumult, and the indomitable power of love being his central themes. The book's solid historical accuracy, colorful characters, and remarkable storytelling make "A Tale of Two Cities" one of the all-time greats, which never loses its appeal to the audience through a striking depiction of the human condition in the middle of the uprisings.
