Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Bill Homewood

Classics • 1.5 hrs. • Abridged • © 1831

Set in fifteenth-century Paris, Hugo's powerful novel evokes medieval life as it tells of the doomed love of Quasimodo, the grotesque bell-ringer at the Cathedral of Notre Dame, for Esmeralda, the beautiful gypsy. Bill Homewood's vibrant performance captures the passion of Hugo's characters in his spellbinding narration. Whether he's thundering Frollo's lust or bellowing Quasimodo's despair, Homewood's strong voice reveals the emotions of the characters with skill and confidence. Fine liner notes include information about Hugo and a list of the classical music skillfully selected for the narrative transitions. P.B.J.
