I'm listening to my fist audible book while I sew...it is a good thing! It is very expensive to buy audible books but I had a free purchase to try it out on Amazon so I wanted to get my money's worth. I picked a book with 60 hours of reading...
Victor Hugo's, "Les Misérables."
Rather appropriate reading while living in Paris! I'm only a third of the way through the story. Can't wait to see the movie...it finally got to Paris a couple of weeks ago. Many American movies are shown with their original voice...or VO as they would list the movie here.
I can't imagine reading this book...there is a good reason why the title is, "The Miserable."
I've learned a bit about French history through this story. The significance of Napoleon and his battle at Waterloo was discussed in great detail. There is also a lot of detail about areas of Paris that are very much a part of my world today.
