    I work at home. To keep motivated I listen to books while I work and it doubles my work hours. This book is great! Not just as fine literature, but the reader is a constant pleasure! He uses the French love of puns, and wit to its fullest! Every scene was as clear and detailed as if watching a film. It was good enough to prompt me to get a paper copy!! and actually read it ...when I can! However as it was written in the 1800s...some readers who want more ' modern, quick TV style' dialogue, may find it too detailed for their taste. It is a multicoursed meal!

    I loved this book and Frederick Davidson's reading of it. I was surprised that a book published 180 years ago would feel so contemporary in its tone and pace. The basic "Hunchback" outline that we all know is such a minor part of the overall work which is really a picture of many different facets of Paris in the late 1400s. The characters are vividly drawn and the Paris history and imagery is very rich. I was also surprised by the amount of humor and that it's not so overly melodramatic as some other novels from the period. it's a must for any fan of Paris and its architecture.

    I really wanted to like this book, but it was incredible boring.
