It blew my mind a lot more then 2nd time I read it, when it was by choice and I was a tad older. Dickens is my dawg, let's just leave it at that.

Random place to have a Dickens discussion, but yeah, one of the most affecting endings in literary history... even though this tangent started with the first line

I was about to go 'wtf' to what u2popmofo just said, until I thought about the fact that Dickens was paid by the word... but he was a damn fine storyteller.

I've always thought that somebody needs to make a really dark, gritty and violent (and good, of course) modern film adaptation of that book.

I might just have to be the one to do it.

At the very least there needs to be a good, big budget straight adaptation of it, the old one from the 40's (I think) was OK, but think about an adaptation on the scale of Gangs of New York.

Yeah, that's pretty much what I meant. I was thinking somthing similar to Gangs.

But even fucking darker.

Oh, OK, when I saw the word modern I thought you were suggesting like a new interpretation of it in hard modern times. Which would be weird to say the least.

No, but I'm pretty sure he bedded all of the Bronte sisters.

No, no, my bad. I just meant somebody needs to do it, in this era, with all the updated film technology we have and what not. But definitely a very faithful adaptation.

The casting of Lucie Manette is going to be of the utmost importance.

Not gonna lie, if there was one 19th century novel I'd want to adapt to film, it'd be A Tale of Two Cities.
