“Nowadays most people die of a sort of creeping common sense, and discover when it is too late that the only things one never regrets are one's mistakes." There are so many thought-provoking lines in this book. I don‘t know why it took me so long to read it. But a great way to start 2018 by reading this one first.

Tale of Two Cities is my introduction to reading via #serialreader. I find the you-have-completed-another-issue pop ups more entertaining and encouraging than I could have imagined.

From the opening paragraphs I can already tell this is going to be a memorable book: "...on this balcony where he now squatted beside a fire of telephone directories, eating the roast hindquarters of the Alsatian before setting off to his lecture at the medical school."
