Ok I'll be quick and simple this is a great story
Victor Hugo wrote this book to show how people act in battle (the novel is set in the year 1793 in the French Revolution). And he shows how familys faught against each other in the fight e.g. the Villian in this novel is an uncle and the Hero is a nephew of that uncle and they are on different sides. Fighting for different reason's so if you like 'Notre dame de Paris' and 'Les Mis?rables' his other two great novels you'll like this.
Now for the down side the recording it's self....
It says it's 'unabridged' but it's not it keeps skiping chapters like in one book (the story is split into differnt books and chapters) it gose from chapter 1 to 3 and skips two and in the same book gose from chapter 4 to 6 skiping 5.
This is either a mistake with 'Blackstone audiobooks' which is the company which released this recording or Audible it's self.
And I might add that when I bought 'Notre dame de Paris' it had the same problem it even skiped a complete book so I had to get another rendition of 'Notre dame de Paris' to read the full thing and now there is no other copy of Ninety-Three' so I can't get the full book just warning you.
But beside that it is a very, very good book the characters are wonderful and moving but it would help if you knew some history of the year 1793 in France and the whole revolt sense Hugo acts like his readers already know the historical fact's he put's down.

This could have been a good book, but I did not download this title as the excerpt was so dreadful. The narrator reads the novel as if reading a shopping list. I will read the book myself!

What would have made Ninety-Three better?
This is a great book. Narrator.... well.... ruined it.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
Blah, blah, blah. Monotone. Where did you get this guy?

This is a great book and well narrated. I'm almost finished listening to it for the second time and am enjoying it even more this time than I did the first time. FIVE STARS!
