Written in 1831 before Hugo was forced to flee from Louis Napoleon's France. In this novel, Hugo paints a vivid portrait of medieval Paris. Quasimodo, the one-eyed, hunchbacked refugee; Esmeralda, the dancing gypsy girl, threatened by the gallows; and a world where chaos is in charge--Hugo captures them all in this timeless, almost Gothic, piece of literature.

If you come to this novel expecting the Disney version, you will be in for a rude awakening! Although the Disney movie was dark, it is nothing compared with the original novel, which amps up the darkness and kicks it into overdrive! Bear in mind that this is the author of "Les Miserables", so you have been warned! Also, be prepared for an abrupt detour away from the story so Hugo can indulge in a description of 13th Parisian architecture! It goes on for a while!

You have to wade through some of Hugo's long winded descriptions of the setting, however that is something that is common to many of the great novels of this time period and does little to detract from the overall story which is infinitely superior to the Disney adaptation.
