Day 935 – #7 Complete the BBC Big Read Top 100

tale of twoAnother Dickens novel off the list.  I enjoyed this one much more than Bleak House (maybe because it was a quarter of the size?!) and got into it a lot more quickly.

Set against the backdrop of the French Revolution it flits between happenings in Paris and London.  The characters lives are woven between the two cities in a story of increasing tension and peril.

It’s a lot less waffly than Bleak House and the pace of story telling is a lot better.  You actually *want* to keep reading on…  to find out if the Doctor has as much influence as he thinks, to see if Madame Defarge gets her comeuppance and to find out if Evremonde, called Darnay manages to keep his head….

Great book.
