A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens - This was not an easy book to listen to. The reader (John Lee) was great, but the story and the language made it tough to follow becuase I tend to listen to books in 10 - 15 minute increments. Thank goodness for Sparknotes. I really used the chapter overviews and analyses on that website to follow the story for the first third of this book. After that, I was acclimated to the language and the story and could follow better just by listening.
Bottom line - I'm glad I listened to this book - it truly is a classic worth experiencing.
