The Beginning and The End Series: A Tale of Two Cities Charles Dickens

I'm a voracious reader and one of things that I try to do is to read at least one book every week whether it's a new story or something that I've already read before.

I like reading either the first few lines of the book or even the last few lines. It helps me figure out if the book would be interesting enough.

In this series, I'll be bringing to you some of the books that I've enjoyed reading.

Hopefully, these would help some of you discover the reading bug. Whether you use an ereader or still prefer the print version, it doesn't matter.

Let's make a difference and start a Reading Revolution.

I've learned a lot from reading and I'd like to share this passion to everyone.

Please beware about possible spoilers if you read The End part.


Book Title: A Tale of Two Cities
Author: Charles Dickens

The Beginning:

It was the best of times,
it was the worst of times, 
it was the age of wisdom,
it was the age of foolishness,
it was the epoch of belief, 
it was the epoch of incredulity,
it was the season of Light,
it was the season of Darkness,
it was the spring of hope,

it was the winter of despair,




The End:

---and I hear him tell the child my story, with a tender and a faltering voice.

"It is a far, far better thing that I do, that I have ever done; it is a far, far better rest that I go to than I have ever known."
