Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
A Tale of Two Cities is one of Dickens's most exciting books, set against the backdrop of the French revolution, in which two generations struggle against the injustices of first a corrupt aristocracy and then the mindless rule of the mob.
Illustrated by H K Browne 'Phiz', with an Afterword by Sam Gilpin.
Biografía del autor
Charles Dickens was born in 1812 near Portsmouth, where his father worked as a clerk. Living in London in 1824, Dickens was sent by his family to work in a blacking-warehouse, and his father was arrested and imprisoned for debt. Fortunes improved and Dickens returned to school, eventually becoming a parliamentary reporter. His first piece of fiction was published by a magazine in December 1832, and by 1836 he had begun his first novel, The Pickwick Papers. He focused his career on writing, completing fourteen highly successful novels, as well as penning journalism, shorter fiction and travel books. He died in 1870.

Getting to the point, I think this edition is excellent: a most pretty hardcover, an excellent edition of the work (with an appropriate introduction and some illustrations --which some may think it's infantile, but it is in fact another nuance of good taste and traditionalism--) and a size which also remind to those old books (fairly small) which allows one to read it comfortably both on a desk or table (for the hardcover) and in bed or in the armchair (for the small size). About the price, although it's clear there're more affordable editions of A Tale of Two Cities, this one's isn't excessive (considering both the product and the price in abstract).
