Listener Opinions

    " Since this book is such a well-known classic, I expected it to be much more enjoyable. The first half of the novel was very slow-moving and I couldn't get interested in it. The plot and characters were too superficially developed for my taste, and the lengthy descriptions of the city bored me. In the second half of the story when the action develops there was a sense of suspense that kept me reading. I particularly enjoyed a passage in the climactic chapter about the fate of Claude Frollo where Hugo uses descriptions of Notre Dame in a way that actually suits the story. This final passage increased my rating from 2-stars to 3 "

    " Much more tragic than the Disney remake would lead one to believe. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aaron | 1/12/2014

    " A book that requires stamina. Very dark, with very long descriptions of the layout of Paris (something like a hundred pages straight of geographical descriptions). An exciting climax. "

    " Early Beauty-and-The-Beast story told by a master of literature. Quite a bit of intrigue and adventure to boot. "

    " If you can make it through the first 80ish pages of background and introductions, the rest of it is amazing! Absolutely one of the best books I've ever read. "

    " Couldn't get past the 50+ pages of the description of the cathedral. (Maybe I'm exaggerating, but not by much.) "

    " This book was so. good. I don't think it was better than Les Miserables, but it was really close. The story was super interesting. Frollo was insanely creepy and gross. But his little brother was adorable. :D "

    " Nothing like the Disney version...lol "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kellie | 2/21/2013

    " Holy smoke - I plugged through this book - many times ready to put it down, but then I'd come to parts where it was so exciting and well written, that I couldn't! Then, I got so far that I decided I'd finish it! It took forever - a little, OK, a lot slow in some parts and was such a tragedy! "

    " Did not expect that ending. My only reference point was the Disney version in which the ending is always a happy one. Victor Hugo had a masterful way with words but sometimes was very long-winded. "

    " It is a long but interesting book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alyssa | 9/7/2012

    " Hard to get through the beginning, Victor Hugo likes to describe EVERYTHING, but once you get into it, it's one of the best books I've read. "

    " Is there anything to say? Almost everyone knew this thanks for cartoons and films. "

    " WHOAAAAAA it is one of the best books that I have ever read........... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily | 4/23/2012

    " Truly sad to say the least. But quite intriguing to read on. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jon Chater | 4/9/2012

    " Much more hard work to read than anyone may first think having been influenced by the Disney cartoon. This is far more tragic, bleak and dark. Yet again that dark force of obsession rears its ugly head leading to tragedy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Colleen | 9/1/2011

    " This was very difficult to continue reading in the beginning, but was more than worth the time in the end. "

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

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