Micah

- A masterpiece of French literature

This book is a masterpiece. It’s ability to describe middle-ages Paris, it’s enthralling and tragic plot, and it’s unforgivable and unforgettable characters make it one of the best books I’ve read (or listened to.) Having never read any of Hugo’s literary works, I found it a great help to have the audio version of this book to be able to continue through the longer chapters and be able to hear the correct French pronunciations. Being a tragedy, I found this book very enjoyable. Hugo fills the dialogue and plot with irony and wit and makes sure that the reader understands the full context of the architecture, the history, and the political climate in that time. The reader of this audiobook is phenomenal. His voice is clear and pleasant to listen to, he give life and unique voices to each character, and (as far as I can tell) his French pronunciation is on point. Very high quality.

- Amazing book and reader

This book is wonderful, there is not more that needs to be said. However, I want to be sure to draw recognition and appreciation towards the reader. The reader is amazing, having recorded all the chapters himself and with such wonderful voices, tone and pace. I would pay to buy such an audiobook, truly, this is of a very high quality. The recording is clear and so easy to follow. I also admire how unlike readers of other books, this one person never seems to mention his own name, but rather gets straight into each chapter. I do hope the reader can be identified, at the least so that I can listen to more of his recordings. This reader is the model I intend to follow in my own future contributions. He puts his heart and imagination into each reading and keeps full attention on the story line. Well done! This is certainly one of the best audio recordings.
