frank muller is amazing.every audio book he has read really brings to life the characters and a tale of two cities is one of his best.it's a bit heavy going, just to begin, with but stick with it because its well worth it.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
Great Story, but sadly Audio from 1986 is muffled beyond any hope of Enjoyment.The 1987 Great Expectations is fine, & that is what you sample in the bundle. Audible must clean this Recording as it sounds like a bootleg tape.
What other book might you compare A Tale of Two Cities [Recorded Books] to, and why?
Worst recorded Sound Ever experienced from Audible.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
One can barely hear him
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Anger at being Swindled by the 'bundle'
Any additional comments?
What happened to Quality Control???
This is my first time reading/listening to this famous novel. I was amazed at the gracious style that flowed and was so descriptive yet kept you entertained all the while. These characters became my friends and enemies and were a part of me for the 2 weeks it took to finish this in my car. It has all the excitement of a best seller drama yet at the end of the novel I was changed. That is literature.
The narator is absolutely excellent. His personas assumed throughout the peice were consistent and superb. This is a 10/10 and a must get!

A great listen. Dickens writes a fascinating window into a facinating time in history and the events are enlivened and given scale by the characters he draws. Like all Dicken's work, there is a lot of scene setting and build up but the wait is worthwhile.
The narration is clear and the characterisation is kept at the level where it assists understanding rather than getting in the way.
A very educational and enjoyable listen.
