The novel has a mood that moves with the grim and serious as it was the presentation of harsh and sever reality that was happening in the War under the French revolution. The oppressions and the harshness a common man has gone through the War was depicted in the same way as it happened by Charles Dickens. The horrible scenes of War and appalled people with the bloodshed, the novel have its own extremes of emotions and fright that has caused to people even if they were innocent. Every character has its own importance explaining the grief they have gone through, even it would be husband and wife, the lovers or the relationship of a father and a daughter. The story started with the grief of a daughter Lucie Manette, where she heard that her father who was a doctor, and was missing from last 18 years is alive and was imprisoned in spite of being innocent. When she went to Paris to take him, she found that he has lost his memory. Chales Dickens did not leave any detail of pain and violence and explained the scenario in every possible detail
