AUDIO BOOK: A Tale of Two Cities by Dickens

I found this one via Learn Out Loud: a 14-hour recording from Literal Systems of one of Dickens' best known works, A Tale of Two Cities. I've always thought Charles Dickens was a bit underappreciated these days. His work remains quite accessible to a modern reader, and he has a fine soap opera-ish sense of the dramatic which veers into sensationalist melodrama quite often. Had he been writing today, he would have found a home in Hollywood, or cranking out genre thrillers or romances :) Check out the e-text too at Gutenberg or Many Books.
