characters Notre Dame de ParisBehind the characters as a film intended for children it left out many of the book s deeper moments and is radically different from the book in many respects uasimodo actually isn t a huge presence in the novel in spite of him being the titular character which was a bit odd but the book seems to be about sharing a message than it is about the characters themselves I can t say that I loved The Hunchback Notre Dame as much as Les
Mis rables unfortunately While it s still a great novel and undeniablyrables unfortunately it s still a great novel and undeniably written The Hunchback of Notre Dame seems in its own weird way to be a commentary on Victor Hugo s perception of France s architecture and a historicalpolitical glance back in time The pacing and structure of the novel is also difficult to get used to If you
"Like Linear Plots With Only "linear plots with only couple of characters I wouldn t recommend it but if you like stories that follow their own course at their own time this one is a good choice I do however recommend reading Les Mis rables first if you re new to the work of Victor Hugo It s arguably his best novel but also gives readers a chance to get immersed in his writing style before moving onto his other books 922 Notre Dame de Paris Our Lady of Paris The Hunchback of Notre Dame Victor HugoThe Hunchback of Notre Dame is a French RomanticGothic novel by Victor Hugo published in 1831 The story is set in Paris in 1482 during the reign of Louis XI The gypsy Esmeralda born as Agnes captures the hearts of many men including those of Captain Phoebus and Pierre Gringoire but especially uasimodo and his guardian Archdeacon Claude Frollo Frollo is torn between his obsessive lust for Esmeralda and the rules of Notre Dame Cathedral He orders uasimodo to kidnap her but uasimodo is captured by Phoebus and his guards who save Esmeralda Gringoire who attempted to help Esmeralda but was knocked out by uasimodo is about to be hanged by beggars when Esmeralda saves him by agreeing to marry him for four years The following day uasimodo is sentenced to be flogged and turned on the pillory for one hour followed by another hour s public exposure He calls for water Esmeralda seeing his thirst approaches the public stocks and offers him a drink of water It saves him and she cap.

Victor Hugo s Les Mis rables is one of my all time favourite novels and so it s odd that I ve never read any of his other books In order to fill in the gaps in my reading I ve decided to read at least one classic a month this year and am so glad I started with The Hunchback of Notre Dame Wow wow WOW What a freaking good story It s not uite as good as Les Mis but it s still incredible At times Hugo can be long winded and I could have thrown the Kindle across the room when he rambled on for 50 or so pages describing Notre Dame and the view from there However as I didn t fancy breaking the Kindle and having to buy a new one I reined myself in and plowed through it Maybe physical books ARE better than e books in this case After that section thankfully near the beginning the book was very enjoyable and gripping But damn It will break your heart Still Hugo s wit is prevalent throughout and I found myself chuckling several times even though the story is so tragic I m so glad I finally got around to reading this Written by Victor Hugo who also brought us the wonderful classic Les Mis rables which in some ways is very similar to this story I noticed a sort of parallel between Inspector Javert and Claude Frollo this large classic features
characters dark but important thematic elements and morality which isn t always so black and white Until my only experience with The Hunchback of Notre Dame had been watching the 1990 s Disney animated film on VHS as a kid which was waaaay back in 2005 and my memory of it isn t so good except that I remember being disappointed by the ending in which Esmeralda inevitably doesn t love uasimodo in spite of him being a kind person I was eight years old it hadn t occurred to me back then that life rarely works out that way and feeling very sorry for poor Frollo in his demise god knows why he was scary back then in my elementary school classes had nightmares about I decided I go back and re experience the story but this time I wanted to try reading the original book over the Disney film The novel is considerably deeper although the Disney film did try and in all fairness did manage to capture some of the complex emotions and psychology.
