Kfamily Posted February 11, 2012 Share Posted February 11, 2012 Hi! I had always planned for my dds to read The Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens as the most minimal requirement for high school literature. If we could squeeze in Great Expectations as well, well, that would be great(:D), but I thought that the former book would be read for certain. I had always planned on The Tale of Two Cities because this seemed to be the the choice book to represent the work of Dickens. My older dd has recently picked up David Copperfield (she has never really been interested in Dickens at all before now) and is really enjoying it. She still insists that she doesn't think she will enjoy The Tale of Two Cities or even Great Expectations. She has read only a brief summary of the former and has seen a movie of the latter. How important is it for her to read either of these two books? I may be preparing her for an AP or SAT II test for the subject of literature if this makes a difference. Can I let this go or show I push this upon her? She has told me that she would like to read Little Dorrit next and, if pressed, might consider Oliver Twist. What do you think?
