THE REASON I LOVE ORANGES

I first read A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens in 1969. My friend Bucky, a French-Canadian, gave me the book as a birthday present with a bouquet of daises, a blue balloon, and a wooden crate of oranges. We sat on the beach eating oranges from morning until sunset...

We sat on the beach eating oranges from morning until sunset, reading A Tale of Two Cities to one another. It was one of my favorite birthdays. It is still one of my favorite books. It is probably the reason oranges are my favorite fruit.

    BORING

    This has to be one of the worst book I have ever read. It is really bad. It's so boring. It has a good plot and story line but it is just stretched out so much. I think that if it didn't have as much detail in it then it would be better. I don't think many people would like this book or would understand it. I don't recommend readign this book if you have a short attention span and if you like adventurous stories. I do recommend reading this book if you are interested in the social statures of England and France during the 1700's. The best part of this book was when Carton switched places with Darnay so he could keep his promise that he made to Lucie 'to keep a life you love beside you.' That was the most exciting part of the book. Other interesting things in this book are Dr. Mannette's insanity, Carton's striking resemblance to Darnay, and Darnay's uncle's murder. Overall, this book was disappointing. I was expecting something more exciting and interesting. I didn't think this book would be as boring as it was. When you first started to read it, you expect something great to happen because you don't know what is meant by the message Jarvis Lorry gets but then it kind of dies off and dull until the end.

    not interesting

    The book didn't interest me that much because it was slow most books I read I get done with them fast but that one took me forever to finish it!
