a great tale told beautifully by a wonderful writer in the voice of a great and very versatile actor. The characterisations are very vivid and the era and people come to life, rather than being an old tale told in an antiquated and wordy manner. l enjoyed it immensely.

The language is superb. Those opening lines lead you in to a luxury of literature. What a wonderful, profound story.

tale of 2 cities is tale of 2 cities. it's a landmark novel. it's my favorite Dickens. and this is the best of the versions. i have several versions and this is the one.
it is Simon Vance that makes the difference. he's perfect in this narration. he's better than any other. perfect articulation. perfect cadence. perfect tone. perfect meter. a perfect version.
in fact, i believe, this is one of the best of the audiobooks on audible. i have listened to this one over and over. maybe i've put it on a dozen times. why? this reading is poetry of sound and story. this is a pleasure to hear.
i hope you enjoy it.

I am a fairly well-read person, yet I'd managed to miss this cornerstone work for my entire life. I am very glad that I encountered it in the voice of Simon Vance. He is a superb reader, with a fine sense of timing and drama. I was riveted by the story and (I admit it) I wept at the end, sobbed like a baby. Maybe it was good that I waited so long to get to this great book!

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?
I read as it's a classic on the 1001 books to read before you die lists.
After great expectations, I simply didn't enjoy as much. It's a love story of sorts and it simply wasn't for me. I was expecting a grittier French Revolution story.
Has A Tale of Two Cities [Tantor] put you off other books in this genre?
Absolutely not. But nobody can enjoy all of the classics.
What about Simon Vance’s performance did you like?
What can Say It's great performance.Nice and clear voice.I like it very much.Thanks for everything.
