Not a judge as in the Disney movie They just tried to secularize him to an euivalent position I argue that Frollo was the protagonist The story spent most of its time with him his internal struggle his plotting And his character was fantastic He was nderhanded but I pitied him He was pathetic but I feared him He did evil but I loved him Frollo was not simply a powerful villain he was a dynamic complex character that at times the reader could really sympathize withThe other characters in the novel were eually impressive Esmeralda s sweet strong innocence she was only sixteen and foolish devotion to Phoebus is heart wrenching asimodo s strength of body and heart is awe inspiring Phoebus selfish arrogance is antagonizing The minor characters from the old heckling woman to the foolish young Frollo the Archdeacon s brother to the rambling philosopher create a motley portrait of a fascinating worldHugo s occasional comments on society cannot go nnoted I especially enjoyed one episode where Is Anybody Up? uasimodo was beingestioned in court In the novel The Doorstep Girls unlike in the Disney movieasimodo is deaf so as he is being Praying with Mother Teresa uestioned he tries to anticipate the judge sestions and answer them accordingly The irony is that the judge was doing the same thing Hugo created a deaf judge Beautiful Anyway a funny scene ensued and Hugo made his pointThe best part of the story maybe there were just so many good ones was likely Hugo s portrayal of love Love was everywhere the inexplicable love Frollo had for his El corazón del tártaro useless brother the love that caused Frollo to acceptasimodo the love that broke a mother s heart at the loss of her daughter the faithful love that sent Vox - Edizione Italiana uasimodo to Frollo with his tail between his legs But the most stunning and provocative of all was the comparison of the three men who loved Esmeralda one man loving her so much that he wanted to possess her one man loving her for the momentntil another girl came along and one man loving her so much that she went before everything before his desire to be with her before his desire to have her before his own desire to live swoons again Awesome bookWhen I started reading it everyone felt the need to warn me that it didn t end like the Disney movie I was afraid I was scared that after stringing me along Hugo was going to kill it at the end Don t worry he doesn t The end is moving and beautiful and fitting and so what if it s not Disney it s greatAnd to further please the happy reader there were a million good otes Here you go Oh love That is to be two and yet one A man and a woman joined as into an ange that is heaven Esmeralda Great edifices like great mountains are the work of the ages He found that man needs affection that life without a warming love is but a dry wheel creaking and grating as it turns Alas The small thing shall bring down the great things a tooth triumphs over a whole carcass The rat of the Nile destroys the crocodile the swordfish kills the whale the book will kill the edifice Frollo It is to this setting sun that we look for a new dawn Spira spera Breathe hope For love is like a tree it grows of itself it send its roots deep into our being and often continues to grow green over a heart in ruins What man orders Circumstances disorder Frollo Everyone knows that great wealth is not Acuired By Letters And That The Most Accomplished Writers Have by letters and that the most accomplished writers have always a warm hearth in wintertime The Lawyers Take All lawyers take all wheat for themselves and leave nothing by chaff for the other learned professions Gringoire the philosopher A lighted candle never other learned professions Gringoire the philosopher A lighted candle never one gnat only That s life It s often our best friends who make s fall Gringoire The human voice is music to the human ear Just a wonderful sample of the jewels contained in The Hunchback of Notre Dame The novel was difficult but well worth the effort I m just sitting here in awe of it I can t write any ok i ll be honest i hated the first 150 pages and had i not been reading it for book club i would have abandoned it about 300 pages in i started to think it was okay around 400 i really liked it at page 450 i couldn t put it down i stayed Betrayal: Infidelity, Book 1 up till 2am last night fin Written by Victor Hugo who also broughts 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 The Prisoner in the Castle: Maggie Hope Mystery Series, Book 8 uasimodo in spite of him being a kind person I was eight yea While reading this book I started to notice how little the Hunchback is in it A Goodreads friend mentioned that this is why the title for it in France is actually Our Lady of Paris For some reason English translations chose the the Hunchback for the titleIf other books movies or TV shows named themselves based on a character that was involved as much asasimodo was in this story here is what they would be calledStar Wars ChewbaccaHarry Potter Neville LongbottomThe Big Bang Theory Howard WalowitzThe Shining Danny Torrance Frozen OlafLost Smoke MonsterAll those characters are important to the stories but they are hardly the main focus While this is the case with this book it is not necessarily a bad thin. Er has also attracted the attention of the sinister archdeacon Claude Frollo and when she rejects his lecherous approaches Frollo hatches a plot to destroy her that only asimodo can prevent Victor Hugo’s sensational evocative novel brings life to the medieval Paris he loved and mourns its passing in one of the greatest historical romances of the nineteen. .
Victor Hugo s Les Mis rables is one of my all time favourite novels and so it s odd that I ve never read any of his other books In order to fill in the gaps in my reading I ve decided to read at least one classic a month this year and am so glad I started with The Hunchback of Notre Dame Wow wow WOW What a freaking good story It s not ite as good as Les Mis but it s still incredible At times Hugo can be long winded and I could have thrown the Kindle across the room when he rambled on for 50 or so pages describing Notre Dame and the view from there However as I didn t fancy breaking the Kindle and having to buy a new one I reined myself in and plowed through it Maybe physical books ARE better than e books in this case After that section thankfully near the beginning the book was very enjoyable and gripping But damn It will break your heart Still Hugo s wit is prevalent throughout and I found myself chuckling several times even though the story is so tragic I m so glad I finally got around to reading this An interesting read I enjoyed this though not as much as Les Miserables The characters were complex and interesting and the ending very powerful but it didn t ite hold my attention as much as Les Miserables Victor Hugo ties in the destinies of a handful people in Paris in the late fifteenth century so cleverly and atmospheric together in a tragedy that it belongs to the most known dramas in European literature The significance of this work is based on the psychological archetypes that Hugo portrays as tragic characters The author characterized the nderlying society with particular destinies and psychographics Church nobility poets and criminality of the contemporary Paris which are here represented by individual fates are leading to genre picture of this time I personally think that Hugo s excellent narrative style and ability to act are complex and intelligent 922 Notre Dame de Paris Our Lady of Paris The Hunchback of Notre Dame Victor HugoThe
