Publisher's Summary

When it comes to 19th-century French literature, few can compare to Victor Hugo. In 1831, Victor Hugo wrote one of the most memorial gothic stories of all time, Notre Dame de Paris, later changed to The Hunchback of Notre Dame in 1833. It is said that Hugo's inspiration for writing this book was the cathedral itself. He worried that society was neglecting the old gothic buildings in favor of new buildings and wanted to bring attention to the structure. As a result of Hugo's concern, the world was treated to a fantastic gothic novel that would continue to be enjoyed for centuries.
This amazing story is set in medieval Paris and is centered on the famed Notre Dame cathedral as well as the three main characters: Esmeralda (the gypsy dancer); Quasimodo (the hunchback); and the priest, Claude Frollo.

A Truly Great Narration!

I love how Victor Hugo paints such a clear and vivid picture for his audience in this tragic love story that will definitely captivate any and all listeners, and will most likely have you in tears towards the ending. Hats off to the narrator for a SPECTACULAR job throughout the entire book, his reading style and accents were spot on.

Next on the list...Les Miserables!

This is different than the Disney Movie

Where does The Hunchback of Notre Dame rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Another Victor Hugo classic. Middle Ages Paris comes to life.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Find out a truer story of the gypsy. Hugo illuminates their character and history.

What does Philippe Duquenoy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He is very believable as he moves from one character to another.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The moments when Quasi stands over the priest as he hangs on the ledge of the cathederal..

Any additional comments?

This is an easy and enjoyable listen!
