The Hunchback of Notre-Dame (French: Notre-Dame de Paris, "Our Lady of Paris") is a novel by Victor Hugo published in 1831. The title refers to the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, on which the story is centered.
The novel's original French title indicates that the Cathedral itself is the most significant aspect of the novel. Almost every major event in the novel takes place in the cathedral, atop the cathedral or can be witnessed by a character standing within or atop the cathedral. The Cathedral had fallen into disrepair at the time of writing. The book portrays the Gothic era as one of the extremes of architecture, passion, and religion. The theme of determinism (fate and destiny) is explored as well as revolution and social strife. (Wikipedia)

Meet the Author

"If a writer wrote merely for his time, I would have to break my pen and throw it away," the larger-than-life Victor Hugo once confessed. Indeed, this 19th-century French author's books — from the epic drama Les Misérables to the classic unrequited love story The Hunchback of Notre Dame — have spanned the ages, their themes of morality and redemption as applicable to our times as to his.

Amazing book. It was rather boring in the beginning, but later on it really adds to the novel. The story was so vivid and heartbreaking once I started I couldn't put it down. It isn't a happy book, so be warned. But it is a masterpiece and will always be one of my favorites.

This book is so far the best book yet classic ive ever read. But when disney made this into a film. Of course thell be some minor changes but disney always has to do a happy ending. Spoiler alert!!!!! For example the lovely esmeralda gets to be hanged along with the archeadon who falls and quasimodo who apearently jusr died from a heartbreak that esmeralda has caused. But no disney has to make phoebus and esmeralda fall in love. Quasi finally is welcomed to the town and of course dom claude dies from falling. Still love the book ok w the movie

In the disney movie, youd think Quasimodo woukd sound.. more deformed. Instead he sounds like a perfect person. Like if you heard his voice but you couldnt see him, youd picture a normal person but when you saw him you'd be all,"Wwho is he! He's ugly." I like the "Hellfire"song from the movie. Frollo sounds like a total jerk and i wanna slam his face in the mud. Luckily he dies in the end. :) If you agree with anything in this post, speak out! - #DRAGONIA :)

I wanted to read this book because I loved the Disney movie! However I was somewhat disappointed because I thought that Quasimodo would be the central figure of the novel because of the title but Esmerelda seemed to be the major character. Aside from that this book is so boring for the first half because Hugo has so much commentary and history mentioned about France. The Latin and French words got to me at times too. But if you stick around the action begins to pick up after this point. It was an emotional read and I hope that Les Miserables is better than this book!

The Hunchback of Notre-Dame may not be a novel for everyone, the fact that it is a fictional novel set centuries behind us is enough to discourage many, and others think it moves slowly. However, as is often customary with Hugo's work, the story that lies within is a wonderful one, and I just love his descriptions. If you look, you'll find a novel that is entirely to be enjoyed and marveled at, which has also become a classic and parallels modern ideals you may be familiar with. Recommended to fans of true literature.
