Sinossi

Novel by Charles Dickens, published both serially and in book form in 1859. The story is set in the late 18th century against the background of the French Revolution. Although Dickens borrowed from Thomas Carlyle's history, The French Revolution, for his sprawling tale of London and revolutionary Paris, the novel offers more drama than accuracy. The scenes of large-scale mob violence are especially vivid, if superficial in historical understanding. The complex plot involves Sydney Carton's sacrifice of his own life on behalf of his friends Charles Darnay and Lucie Manette. While political events drive the story, Dickens takes a decidedly antipolitical tone, lambasting both aristocratic tyranny and revolutionary excess--the latter memorably caricatured in Madame Defarge, who knits beside the guillotine. The book is perhaps best known for its opening lines, "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times," and for Carton's last speech, in which he says of his replacing Darnay in a prison cell, "It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done; it is a far, far better rest that I go to, than I have ever known." -- The Merriam-Webster Encyclopedia of Literature

2.0 su 5 stelle Troppo vecchio 29 agosto 2013
Di npiero45 RECENSORE TOP 1000
Formato:Formato Kindle|Acquisto verificato Amazon
Ho provato anche Dickens ma gli anni si sentono. La forma sa di vecchio, e come non potrebbe, lo stile è d'altri tempi, per forza direte. Quindi anche questo è un testo che si aggiunge a quelli che ho lasciati per la strada...si fa per dire, dato che è in formato elettronico. Leggete altre recensioni, la mia non ha valore in questo caso.

1.0 su 5 stelle ABRIDGED Alert!! 17 dicembre 2013
Di Kalisa Wells - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato Kindle|Acquisto verificato Amazon
How can one of the greatest novels ever written be 236 pages long? It is shameful not to announce this on the cover & in the description. Amazon offers many other full version choices.

we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only. &quote;

A wonderful fact to reflect upon, that every human creature is constituted to be that profound secret and mystery to every other. A solemn consideration, when I enter a great city by night, that every one of those darkly clustered houses encloses its own secret; that every room in every one of them encloses its own secret; that every beating heart in the hundreds of thousands of breasts there, is, in some of its imaginings, a secret to the heart nearest it! &quote;
