"I need a servant who doesn't talk."

Thus speaks Abelard, outspoken and passionate church scholar. So Spider, mute and small, is saved from mutilation and poverty to keep watch as Abelard and his beautiful and gifted pupil Eloise commence one of the greatest love stories of all time. With a quick wit and a talent for listening well, Spider gradually learns to read and write from his famous teachers, and in the end, finds his own unique voice, as well as his place in history as witness to a great love. Set against the backdrop of often frighteningly barbaric, always colorful medieval France, Spider's story is one you'll never forget.

This is an outstanding book... I don't know why they haven't made a movie about this book and why it is so hidden from the world. This book about courage and misery is a book to always remember.

Spider's Voice was a very interesting book. It is about a young boy who can not speak. He becomes a servant to Abelard and becomes part of the story of the famous French lovers, Abelard and Eloise. This book is very mature, so I recommend it for mature people. If you like stories of Medieval times, you should read this.
