A Tale of Two Cities (1859) is the second historical novel by Charles Dickens, set in London and Paris before and during the French Revolution. It depicts the plight of the French proletariat under the brutal oppression of the French aristocracy in the years leading up to the revolution, and the corresponding savage brutality demonstrated by the revolutionaries toward the former aristocrats in the early years of the revolution. It follows the lives of several protagonists through these events, most notably Charles Darnay, a French once-aristocrat who falls victim to the indiscriminate wrath of the revolution despite his virtuous nature, and Sydney Carton, a dissipated English barrister who endeavours to redeem his ill-spent life out of love for Darnay's wife, Lucie Manette.

    Written almost a century and half ago, I was surprised to find Great Expectations exceed my own expectations from this book. The overarching themes of wealth & poverty, loyalty & forgiveness, hope & despair are as relevant now as always. We witness young Pip's metamorphosis through a first person narrative that takes him from being a humble apprentice to his blacksmith uncle to a young lad aspiring to be the finest of gentleman lost in the pretentious streets of London. Along the way we meet some of the most memorable characters like the eccentric Miss Havisham, the mysterious Estella, the tragic Magwitch, the bumptious Pumblechook, the intentionally bipolar Wemmick and even the caricatured Aged P. The plot flows naturally with multiple shocking revelations scattered in the latter half. Deservedly, a classic read.
