Der Penguin Random House Verlag bietet wieder einmal ein kostenloses Hörbuch an. Ich hatte den Hinweis schon unter Diverses veröffentlicht, doch heute habe ich gesehen, dass man das Hörbuch auch herunterladen kann, wenn man kein Gerät von Apple und keinen US-Account besitzt.

"Set against the backdrop of the French Revolution, A Tale of Two Cities is one of Charles Dickens’s most popular and dramatic stories.

It begins on a muddy English road in an atmosphere charged with mystery and it ends in the Paris of the Revolution with one of the most famous acts of self-sacrifice in literature. In between lies one of Dickens’s most exciting books—a historical novel that, generation after generation, has given readers access to the profound human dramas that lie behind cataclysmic social and political events. Famous for its vivid characters, including the courageous French nobleman Charles Darnay, the vengeful revolutionary Madame Defarge, and cynical Englishman Sydney Carton, who redeems his ill-spent life in a climactic moment at the guillotine (“It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done”), the novel is also a powerful study of crowd psychology and the dark emotions aroused by the Revolution, illuminated by Dickens’s lively comedy." - penguinrandomhouseaudio.com
