Synopsis

Charles Dickens's A Tale of Two Cities by Prof. Harold Bloom

Written for serial publication in 1859, Charles Dickens' A Tale of Two Cities is a historical novel that takes place in England and France in the years leading up to the French Revolution. It is one of Dickens' most famous and widely taught novels. Its first line, which begins, It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, is one of the most recognizable openers in all of literature. Newly updated, this Bloom's Modern Critical Interpretations title offers essays that provide exceptional scholarly analysis worthy of the novel's literary stature.

Reviews

Each essay is well-defined and laboriously researched, and each opinion is defended within its context...The book is a useful tool for students needing to examine the themes and context of Tolkien's work.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

I think Lovereading4kids is an amazing company because of the friendly staff and the fabulous chance to read great books before publication.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
