Feel bad about giving a bad review but I had to give up on this reading, it made tough work of a great story. I was so glad I did not give up on the book, I downloaded another version.

Two Cities audible

I downloaded this audible book in order to pass the time on a long trip, but was unfortunately unable to get through more than half of the first part. The narration was very difficult to listen to, sounding as though it had been recorded in single lines and then stitched together. Along with this were frequent miss-pronunciations and a total disregard for punctuation. I,m afraid it flowed about as well as a text to speech translation. I would certainly have gone for a librivox version had I known what this one sounded like. Patrick
