    I recently read Victor Hugo's Notre Dame de Paris for the first time, and was delighted and moved by the experience. Although it lacks the depth and humanity of Les Miserables, it possesses a grandeur of architectonic structure and an Olympian compassion all its own. Best of all, it gives us one of literature's most loving and detailed depictions of a city, rivaled only by Joyce's Dublin in Ulysses.It is a shame that this book is so seldom referred to in English by its given name, for it is abou [...]

    I have officially been wooed by nineteenth century French literature. First Dumas and now this. I just finished reading Victor Hugo’s The Hunchback of Notre-Dame, and it was fantastic. The characters, the themes, the literary structures… Ahhh… *swoons*Before I proclaim my love affair with Victor Hugo, I have to mention some negatives. First off: very, very difficult book to get into. I struggled through at least the first hundred pages, and I’m not that hard to please. Secondly, up until [...]

    Okay, I'm glad I read this book, if only to find out just how badly Disney ruined the story for the sake of their embarassing excuse for a film. (the horrendous straight-to-video sequel, which I fortunately only saw previews for, will not be spoken of at all.) Victor Hugo has a gift for the most ungodly depressing stories, but he writes very well when he's not rambling pointlessly to stretch out his page count. But I can't bring myself to give this four stars, and for one simple reason: with the [...]

    ok i'll be honest. i hated the first 150 pages and had i not been reading it for book club i would have abandoned it. about 300 pages in i started to think it was okay. around 400 i really liked it. at page 450 i couldn't put it down. i stayed up till 2am last night finishing it. so is it worth the painful first half to get to the second half? now that i've done it i would say so. victor hugo could have used a good editor. pages and pages of diatribes and descriptions that made me feel like pull [...]

    Buddy Read at: Emma's Tea Party Oh my God! My brain is exhausted. I used too many neurons for this. I want to take a nap. I really wanted to love the book. In my defense I did like Frollo’s character. He has a very interesting and intense problem to read going on in his head. Sadly everyone else did not set up a thing on me. Alongside those endless descriptions, I found this story way too long and tedious. The writing is excellent, the passion behind it really inspiring but I’m just not inte [...]

    Victor Hugo’s first real novel, written under duress from his publisher!! Nevertheless, he manages to render a dark environment joyous, almost funny at times. For me, the protagonist is not Quasimodo but Esmeralda. It’s her inner and outer struggles we have access to the most. As usual, Victor Hugo portrayed them realistically, neither all good nor all bad, thus humane and credible. Even Gringoire and Claude are portrayed that way, as human beings subjected to primal instincts and humane spi [...]

    I want to state clearly that the book is not bad. I gave it two stars, and by that I mean it is OK! First of all, there are some really gorgeous lines. Secondly, Hugo has the ability to put you in the middle of an event; you are right there and it is whirling around you. Thirdly, he has a talent for weaving non-fictional facts into a fictional story. Sometimes the writing feels wordy. Other times, Hugo expresses himself superbly, beautifully, elegantly.The fictional elements are what give me the [...]

    "Nôtre-Dame de Paris" este un roman estetic care are să fie înțeles numai de către spiritele clasice. în el este descris cu minuțiozitate Parisul secolului al XV-lea, din timpul domniei lui Ludovic al XI-lea. 100 de pagini sunt strict dedicate arhitecturii clasice, iar autorul vede în Renaștere un fel de decădere a artei. El compară Parisul cu "o uriașă tablă de șah făcută din piatră". De asemenea, titlul romanului nu este "Cocoșatul de la Nôtre-Dame" (deși e drept că Quasi [...]

    I`ve watched the Disney movie, seen the musical in the Moscow Kremlin and finally read the novel. To say that I'm delighted is to say nothing! I fell in love with the book and I don't know what to start with.First one hundred pages seemed a little bit dull, although, I really enjoyed the detailed description of Paris. I felt like I was a bird flying above the roofs of magnificent buildings of Paris. No need to say I'm in love with this city. 5 days in 2012 were enough to capture my heart. And ab [...]

    This is definitely my favourite classic, I loved the dark atmosphere of the book, and the setting being Notre-Dame, which is one of my favourite places in Paris. It's not entirely dark and horrible, there are times when it can be humorous, but it's brutal in terms of showing what obsession can become when it's misunderstood as love and the true form of love shown by other characters. When starting this book, it was really difficult to get into which is why I had to force myself to keep reading u [...]

    Disney lied to us.…Let me specify.You probably guessed that Victor Hugo’s novel does not have dancing gargoyles or Wizard of Oz references, but it goes much deeper than that. In fact, we can trace its primary misdirection back to whoever first decided on the English translation of the title of the book: The Hunchback of Notre-Dame. This implies that the main character of the story is Quasimodo, the misformed outcast with a heart of gold who longs to spend oooone daaay ooouuut theeeeere. Howe [...]

    No voy a negar que hay partes de insufribles (y laaaaaargas) descripciones de cosas que no tenían que ver con la historia y que me han puesto un poco de los nervios. Pero en fin Victor Hugo, lo has vuelto a hacer. Me han vuelto a atrapar tus personajes miserables y la forma que tienes que entrelazar sus desgracias y decir cada cosa en momento preciso para crear un conjunto tres veces más trágico. Maldito seas. Hashtag DRAMA.

    What happened to the beginning of this unabridged story!? For 300 pages, The Hunchback of Notre-Dame was scribed like a meandering storyline over a checkerboard, each square representing a chapter of the book. The few squares scribed directly by the line told fleeting, but essential parts of the story (about Quasimodo, Esmeralda, and Frollo). The more numerous squares adjacent to the scribed storyline told even less essential bits of the story. And, the majority of squares, several dozen chapter [...]

    I don’t know about you, but I think about obsessional crimes and stalking as modern phenomena, exacerbated by life in huge cities. The Hunchback of Notre-Dame demonstrates that there is truly nothing new under the sun. Victor Hugo wrote this tale of obsession in the 1800s. The gypsy girl, La Esmeralda, has the misfortune of attracting the obsessional gaze of two men, the archdeacon Claude Frollo and his protégé, the deformed bell-ringer of the cathedral, Quasimodo. She, in her turn, is fixat [...]

    When approaching and reading this fascinating narrative, the reader is well advised to try and forget the silly Walt Disney film based on the story. This work is far more finely wrought, more complex and subtle, more emotionally wrenching and profound than that ridiculous movie suggests. As with Les Miserables, attempts to dramatize such a long and multi-plotted work inevitably fall short and are best forgotten when one turns to the books themselves.Many historical personages are mentioned in th [...]
