I have to admit, even though I am a bit of a geek, and love technology and gadgets. But I do still like to read a good book every now and then. But I find a lot of modern literature unoriginal. How many times can you read a novel involving serial killers, or courtroom dramas written by ex-lawyers, or medical fiction involving a spreading fatal disease? I have been finding myself turning to a lot of books I used to have to read back in high school (and cringed at having to have read), but now finding out how really good they were. Which leads us to this postings must read book. "A Tale Of Two Cities" is a thrilling story, that if written today, would probably be a T.V. show (hopefully a PBS production), because it was written by Dickens as installments when first published. The major part of the story concerns the French Revolution, which it is why a british author's novel is included on this site. This is one of the best novels ever written.
For those of you who have bought a Kindle or a Nook recently, this is one of those great free out of copyright books you can download.
