About this title:
This audio package brings readers three of Dickens' most riveting works to life. Regarded by many as Dickens' most thrilling novel, A Tale of Two Cities contrasts the orderly London with revolution-torn Paris. It follows the lives of Sydney Carton, an English lawyer and wastrel, and Charles Darnay, a French aristocrat torn apart by the French Revolution. Readers can then enjoy Dickens' most famous work, A Christmas Carol, which chronicles the redemption of the cruel miser Ebenezer Scrooge. The trilogy concludes with Nicholas Nickleby: at once a moving and funny novel, it follows the fortunes and misfortunes of an impetuous and high-spirited hero. Left penniless by his father's death, and protector of his sister Kate, Nicholas Nickleby becomes a true champion of the weak. Always equal to the wild adventures thrust upon him, young Nicholas constantly must pit himself against Ralph, his devious and unscrupulous uncle, in order to survive.
