Description
"A stirring classic of love, revenge, and resurrection, the novel's hero, Sydney Carton, a lazy alcoholic -- but honorable attorney who is in love with Lucie Manette, a beautiful woman brought up in London. When Lucie marries Charles Darney, a man condemned to death for his ties to the aristocratic Evremonde family, Carton makes the supreme sacrifice on the bloodstained streets of Paris. In this rousing historical romance, Dickens exposes his severe distaste for the excess of police states, the ease with which citizens resort to mob violence, and aristocratic tyrants, whose livelihood is predicated upon unfeeling notions such "Vengeance and retribution require a long time; it is the rule." -- Provided by Publisher.
