Like many my only exposure to the Hunchback has been through TV caricatures and the Disney bastardization Forever distrustful of the Mouse Ears I didnt know what to expect reading the real deal Hugo is an awesome storyteller While perhaps he could be guilty of rambling on at several points his descriptions of 15th century Paris are vivid His writing is very intriguing he always struck my curiosity I found myself empathizing with the pitiable situations of the Hunchback and his beauty and even with the bad guy pathetic as he was I also found myself thinking If only THIS had happened that is the fingerprint of a good book But Hugos strongest aspect is his amazing characters Claude Frollo is holy enough to take care of an abandoned and deformed child yet - despite his virtue - he cant control his sexual frustrations to La Esmeralda It is also interesting that despite the kindness Quasimodo shows toward her she can hardly look at him Hugo increases our sorrow when Quasimodo sees her beauty and feels all the more ugly I never realized how ugly I am until now Another great aspect of this book is that even though Frollo shows his dark side Hugo does not permit us to forget his good points Especially the part where we see the ingratitude of Frollos delinquent brother after all the kindness he treated him with Another wonderful thing about this book is how its puts you right there with the character and I found myself feeling what they probably wouldve been feeling Tears fell from my eyes when Pacquette found her long lost Daughter and how she defended Esmeralda from the gallows Even without any motherly instincts whatsoever I felt how great it would be to be reunited with my daughter and how heartbreaking at the same time to see her die right before
