Les Misérables is set in Paris after the French Revolution. In the sewers and backstreets we encounter “the wolf-like tread of crime,” where assassination for a few coins is all in a day’s work. We weep with the unlucky and heartbroken Fantine, and we exult with the heroic revolutionaries of the barricades. But above all we thrill to the steadfast courage and nobility of soul of ex-convict Jean Valjean, always in danger from the relentless pursuit of the diabolical Inspector Javert.

Editorial Reviews

“From the title announcement surrounded by thrilling music, you will be captured and held fast through this long, heartbreaking, beautiful audiobook. Prisoners, priests, prostitutes, revolutionaries, and romantics, from Jean Valjean to Javert, Bill Homewood is everyone at once. His ability to slip between characters at high speeds is astonishing. Women, men, children, old, and young, Homewood is utterly convincing. His accents and vocal rasps or purrs fit the period, the person, and the place. Homewood’s performance makes this story of inner goodness and heroism mesmerizing. Musical accompaniment at appropriate moments enhances the mood.” AudioFile
