If you lived in 1859 (which we are sure you didn't) and had been interested in literature or simply in need of entertainment you probably would have woken one day wondering: I need to get that new episode of Dickens' A Tale of Two Cities. Yes, they did not have television, but they invented the idea of "episodes" long before. And book "installments" (31 in our case) were a big chunk of the entertainment of those days, published, where else, in the newspapers. Later on A Tale of Two Cities turned into pretty much every possible form: countless print editions, movies (from silent to full-color), radio versions, TV series, musicals, operas even comics. It's crazy but quite a beautiful destiny for a highly influential story set against the troublesome times of the French Revolution. Haven't read it yet? Now is you chance!
