Yep. I'm STILL reading books monthly!! hehe
This month I chose Charles Dickens "A tale of Two Cities"
It is slow going so far. Some of the expressions used and speech used during his time is kind of hard to follow at times.
The solictor (this is set in England after all! hehe) that is hired to defend the man accused of being a French spy has another guy he went to school with doing his research work and writing his stratagy for him, only thing, I'm not sure why....hmmm
This is suppose to be a book about England AND France, and so far it's been about a man that was wrongfully inprisoned for YEARS and then escaped to England with his grown daughter that went back to France to find him. So not sure when the story moves to France and talks about the French Revolution that will take place there.
So I'm thinking I will have to read this again! hehe
But I am enjoying the beautiful poetic picture that Dickens paints with his words. It's like watching a movie for me, only some time, it gets out of focus or the sound gets garbled so I can't understand what is going on! hehe
Here is what the book looks like;
this is the copy of the book I have Wordsworth edition
