Another Richard Armitage Challenge! Social Distancing Edition #8

Which Audio Book Would You Like RA To Read?

I would like him to read A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens.

He has said several times in interviews that Dickens is one of his favorite writers, if not his favorite.  I think his performance of David Copperfield is one of the top performances of his career. Amazing in many ways, all the characters so alive. You really forget he's one person bringing all these characters to life, they become your friends. It's at the top of my list of favorite Armitage audiobook narrations.  

If you don't know the story, here is a video summary. Spoilers of course if you plan on reading the book:

Richard is perfect to play Sydney Carton and Charles Darnay.  Always hoped a UK producer would make a new TV version of A Tale of Two Cities and have Richard play a dual role of Carton/Darnay.
