A Tale of Two Cities

I am currently reading A Tale of Two Cities, you know, "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times..." and I am realizing how everyone knows those first 12 words and not much else about it. So I asked J what two cities he even thought were involved, and without missing a beat, he guessed Spain and France. I told him Spain and France are countries...not cities. There was a long pause and his reply was well there are many cities overthere.
So the bottom line, my friends: don't trust J on anything literary.

I think ByteChaser is right. I don't know whether I would have remembered that it was Dover, but yeah...that sounds right.

Although I did read it, I am one who uses those 12 words as a sound bite all too often, lol. But isn't it just the best opening sentence ever?

Yeah, I'm still [blog 1hotwahine]

London and Paris.

I think.

I read it in 6th grade and barely remember it. That was the last time in my life I had time for such things.

Wasn't there a Telsson's bank in London and Paris ? Though I have never heard the roll of the dreadfull carts through Paris.

London and Paris would get my vote but I confess I'm not very well read
