A Tale of Two Cities

I'm having difficulties making much headway in A Tale of Two Cities and I've had it for almost two months now. I'm a little over 100 pages in, but I find the plot seemingly a bit dull. I love Dickens' prose and whatnot, but the story isn't grabbing me to the point where I must know what is going on and read if it means sacrificing sleep to do so. I kind of feel this way whenever I try to read a novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald, and I never finish those even though I love the writing.

Usually I'd give up at this point, but I'm hoping that something will happen soon to draw me in.
