Welcome again to FLF!
Sadly, February is a short month, so (for now) with this post the Dickens theme will come to a close. Yes, there are plenty of other books he's written and ALL good! I shall get to them in my time.
For now, enjoy this Classic Opener we ALL should now in one form or another from Tale of Two Cities!
"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, 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."
Again, I have sadly not read this Classic yet. I have seen a condensed stage form of it (as it was a one-act entrance for high school)and I do know that there is a musical out there too. However, I'll get to those after I read the novel.
