It is 1793 in France, the year of the guillotine. Already, Louis XVI has been sentenced to the scaffold, and Terror reigns. The architects of the Revolution (Marat, Danton, and Robespierre) have set up the Convention, an embryo parliament, designed to stem social chaos. But ideals topple in the face of political necessity, alliances founder, and intrigue is a way of life.

A great book ruined....
I was excited for this book knowing that I love Victor Hugo as an author. I was gravely disappointed with the narrator. It was extremely hard to keep up with the monotone reading and I had to keep going back because my mind drifted to other things as he read. I do not plan on getting anymore books Frederick Davidson read. I will encourage no one else to either.
