Narrator Case does an excellent job with this classic tale of innocence, evil, love and lust which takes place against the backdrop of brutality, ignorance and grandeur of medieval Paris. From the harsh tones of the deaf bell-ringer Quasimodo to the musical, childlike voice of street dancer Esmeraldo to Parisians of a wide variety of social classes, Case ably differentiates among speakers. His narration captures the ironic voice of the author and even manages to provide variety to Hugo's lengthy asides on Parisian architecture and life in 1482.
