Esta fantástica historia trata de la vida de David Copperfield desde su infancia hasta la edad adulta. David nació en Inglaterra alrededor de 1820. El padre de David muere antes de que nazca, y cerca de siete años más tarde, su madre contrae matrimonio con el Sr. Murdstone. A David le desagrada su padrastro y siente lo mismo por la hermana del Sr. Murdstone, Juana, quien pronto pasa a vivir en la misma casa. El Sr. Murdstone critica a David por retrasarse en sus estudios. En uno de estos altercados, David lo muerde y luego es enviado lejos a una escuela de pensionados, Salem-House, con un director despiadado, el Sr. Creakle. Aquí se hace amigo de James Steerforth y Tommy Traddles quien, en un verdadero estilo dickensiano, desaparece y vuelve a aparecer más adelante.
A Tale of Two Cities is one of only two works of historical fiction by Charles Dickens (Barnaby Rudge is the other one). It has fewer characters and sub-plots than a typical Dickens novel.
A Tale of Two Cities stands out from most of Dickens's other novels as the one containing the least humour.
Some have argued that in A Tale of Two Cities Dickens reflects on his recently-begun affair with eighteen-year-old actress Ellen Ternan, which was possibly platonic but certainly romantic. Lucie Manette has been noted as resembling Ternan physically.
A Tale of Two Cities is one of the best charles dickens free books you can read.

Oliver Twist is an 1838 novel by Charles Dickens. It was originally published as a serial.
The story is about an orphan Oliver Twist, who endures a miserable existence in a workhouse and then is placed with an undertaker. He escapes and travels to London where he meets the Artful Dodger, leader of a gang of juvenile pickpockets. Oliver is led to the lair of their elderly criminal trainer Fagin, naively unaware of their unlawful activities.
Like most of Dickens' work, the book is used to call the public's attention to various contemporary social evils, including the workhouse, child labour and the recruitment of children as criminals. The novel is full of sarcasm and dark humour, even as it treats its serious subject, revealing the hypocrisies of the time.
It has been the subject of numerous film and television adaptations, and the basis for a highly successful British musical, Oliver!
Dickens originally intended Great Expectations to be twice as long, but constraints imposed by the management of All the Year Round limited the novel's length. The novel is collected and dense, with a conciseness unusual for Dickens. According to G. K. Chesterton, Dickens penned Great Expectations in "the afternoon of [his] life and fame." It was the penultimate novel Dickens completed, preceding Our Mutual Friend.
It is set among the marshes of Kent and in London in the early to mid-1800s. The novel contains some of Dickens most memorable scenes, including its opening, in a graveyard, when the young orphan Pip is accosted by the escaped convict, Abel Magwitch.Great Expectations is a graphic book, full of extreme imagery, poverty, prison ships ("the hulks"), barriers and chains, and fights to the death.
