A Tale of Two Cities

A Tale of Two Cities - Charles Dickens The story is a classic, the book is beautifully written, there are plenty of amusing and thought provoking passages and overall, it's a charming novel. The only downside is that some of the main characters - Lucy, Charles and Lucy - are extremely one dimensional, way too noble & nice, and entirely unrealistic. Fortunately, there are a number of more well rounded and imperfect characters in the story, such as Dr. Manette, the Defarges, Sydney Carton, and Jerry, and they really help keep things lively.
