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 seuel 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 exception of uasimodo and Esmeralda every single character in this book is an insufferable dickhead Frollo obviously deserves to be fed to sharks simply for the mind boggling levels of creepiness he manages to achieve over the course of the story Phoebus is even of a fratboy asshole that I d previously thought and the way he decides to seduce Esmeralda despite the fact that she s the Gypsy euivalent of a vestal virgin made me want to teleport into the story so I could kick him in the nuts Frollo s younger brother Jehan is a relatively minor character but he gets mentioned because in every single scene he appears in he s constantly yammering away and trying to be clever and witty the result being that he makes Jar Jar Binks seem terribly endearing in comparison And Gringoire I had such hope for him He starts out promising but then once Esmeralda gets arrested all he can worry about is the stupid goat because I guess he thinks she s cuter than his fucking wife who saved his fucking life When he joins Frollo to get Esmeralda out of the catherdral he leaves the sixteen year old girl with Pastor Pedo McCreepy and chooses to save the goat The fucking goat One final word of advice skip the chapter entitled A Bird s Eye View of Paris It s thirty pages of pointless babbling about what Paris looks like from Notre Dame and it is impossible to read all the way through without wanting to stab yourself in the eyes with the first sharp object you can reachI know what you re saying Thirty pages Pfft that s nothing I can get through that I read Ulysses First of all you did not Second no you cannot get through these thirty pages Mind numbing does not do it justice It is pointless Don t say I didn t warn you

Notre-Dame de Paris characters Î eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB read Notre-Dame de Paris A profound sense of tragic irony it is a work that gives full play to Victor Hugo's brilliant historical imagination and his remarkable powers of description. 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 deep characters dark but important thematic elements and morality which isn t always so black and white Until recently 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 eventual demise god knows why he was scary back then Kids in my elementary school classes had nightmares about him I decided I should 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 behind 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 of Notre Dame as much as Les Mis rables unfortunately While it s still a great novel and undeniably well 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 a 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
