A Tale of Two Cities (The Novels of Charles Dickens: An Introduction by David Timson)
David Timson talks about Charles Dickens, much loved for his great contribution to classic English Literature. Listen to A Tale of Two Cities narrated by Anton Lesser.
‘It was the best of times and the worst of times.’ In one of the most famous openings of any novel, Dickens masterfully presents the turmoil of the French Revolution, which is the backdrop for a novel of love, patience, hope, and self-sacrifice. The audiobook is read by Anton Lesser, whose award-winning Dickens recordings in their abridged form has now resulted in the opportunity to read the full unabridged text. His singular characterisations led to him being chosen by Peter Ackroyd to play Dickens himself in the major TV account of the writer.
