I thought I wodlun't like A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens my sophomore year of high school. I read the first couple of chapters and was horrified by the language and the boring court case. As the plot unfolded and my teacher helped to explain it to me, I realized it was a fantastic love story. I loved the mysterious Defarge family and the Jacques. There are also a couple of twists and turns that will blow your mind (hopefully)!
