    " I loved this book - the first 2/3 was a bit of a battle but it was worth persevering. "

    " Too bad no one is reading Hugo anymore, this is one of my all time favourites. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Xerxes Anaximander Phoenixlight | 1/3/2014

    " I didn't expect the tragic ending. Haha. I was blinded by the childlike idea of fantasies and stories alike to end beautifully. Ugh. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lily | 12/19/2013

    " I couldn't take the ending It was not what I was expecting but I love this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sabrina | 12/13/2013

    " Extremely good! Much different from what I imagined. Sad ending, but made me think. "

    " Shpikja e shtypshkronjes eshte ngjarja me e madhe ne histori.Ajo eshte nena e te gjitha revolucioneve.Eshte nje mjet krejt i ri per te shprehur mendimin njerezor.Ne formen e fjales se shtypur mendimi u be me i pavdekshem se kurre. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Annice22 | 11/8/2012

    " It was sad but a good book to read. The Hunchback of Notre Dame is a story of love, miscommunication, jealousy and misunderstanding. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nancy Pierson | 10/14/2012

    " All 840 some pages. In French. The beginning was slow going, but the story was riveting; hypocrisy, jealousy, power, so many emotions are explored and exposed. What many people know only as a Disney movie is really a powerful social commentary. And a lament of Paris as it used to be. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Catherine Larsen | 6/4/2012

    " I fought hard through the difficult translation (Isabel Hapgood version), but it was well worth it. Victor Hugo was a genius. I loved this book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ben | 5/10/2012

    " Re-read this one recently, I find Hugo's prose to be to turgid and emotional to be effective, but will readily admit that my own tastes are at fault here. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Grace | 4/29/2012

    " like a bad mexican telenovela "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maedbh | 1/4/2012

    " EVERYONE SHOULD READ THIS BOOK!!! Yes, I know it's long, but the plot moves at a quick pace (Hugo had to finish it in a hurry to meet his deadline)and the writing is really just too good to put down. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 J.E. | 9/18/2011

    " Beautifully written and crushing in places; another favorite. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lauren Beck | 8/24/2011

    " It was good but it didn't even come close to Les Miserables. I wasn't too fond of how it ended. If you've read it you'll know what I mean by that. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Conor O'mahony | 8/21/2011

    " Good book with strong characters and a good ending. I found the lengthy detail of the architecture of Paris through the ages a little long winded but overall really enjoyable "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mercedes | 5/15/2011

    " Heartbreaking. I'm sad Disney butchered this story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jefferson | 5/4/2011

    " Tied as one of the three best books ever written! "
