Hmm, you look rather alot like Charles Darnay... :eyes:

Ha ha. Sydney Carton and Charles Darnay looked were supposed to look almost exactly alike, but I guess you knew that. I feel more like Sydney because Charles was the successful one who was good with the ladies, and Sydney was the one who drowned himself in self pity.

Haha, I hope you would get it. Yes, it was rather tragic how he lived, only to later find companionship on the brink of death, quite sad. I'm glad to find someone else who enjoys good literature on this site.
In fact, your artwork is something to be noted as well, I believe I should watch you.

Haven't checked my account in months, so I don't know if this even applies.

Not many people your age appreciate Dickens, in fact, not many people my age do, myself included. Even my wife, who has a bachelor's in English, and is more widely read than I am, can't wade through Dickens easily. I just happened to read "Tale of Two Cities" because that era of French history appealed to me, "Les Miserables" being my favorite book, but I always identified with Sydney. If it hadn't been for that character, I would have thrown the book away before I was half way through.

Of course, in the past I have been a functioning alcoholic, and knew exactly what Carton meant when he said all men were brothers on New Year's Eve, though they may be evil without disguise at any other time. I've said the same thing myself before I read the book, because camaraderie is common among drunks, pathetic as they ( I )may be.

Well, I know why I identify with him, but I was curious why someone of the newest generation would be. Nothing wrong with you liking Dickens, or that particular character, I just don't encounter many people who even know who he is.
