Book Description HTML  |   Report this book

The story of Quasimodo, the hunchback bellringer of Notre-Dame cathedral and his devotion to the beautiful gypsy dancer Esmeralda. When the demented archdeacon Frollo sets out to abduct Esmeralda, he uses Quasimodo to do the evil deed on his behalf. However, Quasimodo turns from captor to saviour.

"The Hunchback of Notre Dame" is a classic. Every lover of literature should read it at least once. Victor Hugo used it very effectively to arouse the patriotic feelings of Frenchmen to the need for restoration of the famous Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. This work is very descriptive, forceful and full of imagery. Its appeal is evergreen. I have referred to it in my book "Marvels Very Majestic," which is about twenty marvels across the globe other than the celebrated Seven Wonders of the World.
