Excellent narrator

The woman who reads the book does an excellent job. Dickens wrote some long sentences, and she reads them so you can follow along and understand the idea. The story is so very good and she does it justice.

Masterful rendition of a masterpiece

I have read Tale of Two Cities a couple of times. I consider it to be a timeless tale I can easily relate to. Dickens’ use of imagery phrasing to convey the emotion and atmosphere of the settings in his novel is the work of a master weaver of epic scope. Ms. Akers’ reading does great justice to this masterpiece, which in itself is no small accomplishment.
