Reviews

magnificent and profoundly haunting. Gripping and so sad

(5 stars)

moved to review

(5 stars)

As an avid listener of audio books (particularly Libravox) I have been remiss in virtually never reviewing (pure laziness and I apologize) but the ending of this book is magnificent! For Victor Hugo, it is not verbose but understated and all the more powerful for that. A rare gem.

read it!

Toilers of the Sea

(5 stars)

A story of one man and his titanic struggle to achieve an almost impossible task for the love of a woman. A powerful reading by the narrator.
