Victor Hugo began writing Notre-Dame de Paris in 1829, largely to make his contemporaries more aware of the value of the Gothic architecture, which was neglected and often destroyed to be replaced by new buildings or defaced by replacement of parts of buildings in a newer style.

Set in medieval Paris, Victor Hugo’s powerful historical romance The Hunchback of Notre-Dame has resonated with succeeding generations ever since its publication in 1837. It tells the story of the beautiful gypsy Esmeralda, condemned as a witch by the tormented archdeacon Claude Frollo, who lusts after her. Quasimodo, the deformed bell ringer of Notre-Dame Cathedral, having fallen in love with the kindhearted Esmeralda, tries to save her by hiding her in the cathedral’s tower. When a crowd of Parisian peasants, misunderstanding Quasimodo’s motives, attacks the church in an attempt to liberate.

Book by Hugo, Victor
I loved this classic. It took a few pages to grab me in the very beginning but once it did I was hooked. If you are as dismayed by the dismaying state of the "real world" this book can be your escape into an entirely different world. That is it's appeal and why it is a much deserved classic. This is story-telling at its finest. it is sometimes easy to be intimidated by "classics", but don't hesitate to dive into this tale as it is not a difficult book. You won't regret it. This is the same writer who wrote Les Miserables, which I also intend to read one day as soon as I can recover from the epic, but rather ham-fisted movie version of a few years ago.

Believing Les Miserables to be a fine work of literature, I undertook the reading of The Hunchback of Notre Dame. One must persist through Hugo's long preliminaries to appreciate the tragedy of the tale. These somewhat tedious preliminaries are integral to the power of the whole. It is well worth the effort. Human nature and human folly are timeless.

Reading the unabridged Hugo is an experience that is unfortunately too rare these days. Here's a real author for you - even if the story is melodramatic, the writing is high art.

I've loved this book for over 30 years since reading it in my HS Literature class. I bought this Kindle book mainly for Victor Hugo's "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" and Mary Shelly's "Frankenstein" was an extra bonus. I have both books in large heavy hardcover editions and now I can easily take the kindle edition with me anywhere on my Kindle reader or tablet. I also have many other Classics in kindle edition and you can't beat that kind of convenience when reading classic literature. BTW the illustrations look nice on my tablet.

"The Hunchback of Notre Dame remains a classic for good reason. The many concurrent themes of good vs. evil, appearance and reality, the hypocrisy of the social order and political hierarchy, and the power of the human spirit converge in the story of Quasimodo and Esmeralda. For those who have not read the book, I highly recommend it. This book is a wonderfully readable 19th century novel with immortal characters and a bittersweet plot line.

The story is quite expansive, but filled with a great variation of characters and turns of events. I am always impressed that our human history has changed over the centuries but people's characters seem to still follow similar patterns. The hunchback and Esmeralda have impressed me the most. Both facing huge difficulties and obstacles in their lives but both remaining true to their basic decency and compassion for others. I am glad to have been able to read the complete and unabridged story.

I had to read this after finishing Les Miserables (loved that book). Although this book is not quite as good as that one it still will be on my list to read again at some point.
I am reading another translation of Les Miserables and enjoying it as much as the first read.

Good book, but I feel it loses something in the translation. This version seems to make more sense than some of the other versions I took a look at. More straightforward language is used. I have enjoyed it though and recommend it as far as the story goes.
