Book Description

May 4 2009 Folio (Gallimard) (Book 4849)
Il était là, grave, immobile, absorbé dans un regard et dans une pensée. Tout Paris était sous ses pieds, avec les mille flèches de ses édifices et son circulaire horizon de molles collines, avec son fleuve qui serpente sous ses ponts et son peuple qui ondule dans ses rues, avec le nuage de ses fumées, avec la chaîne montueuse de ses toits qui presse Notre-Dame de ses mailles redoublées. Mais dans toute cette ville, l'archidiacre ne regardait qu'un point du pavé: la place du Parvis; clans toute cette foule, qu'une figure: la bohémienne. Il eût été difficile de dire de quelle nature était ce regard, et d'où venait la flamme qui en jaillissait. C'était un regard fixe, et pourtant plein de trouble et de tumulte. Et à l'immobilité profonde de tout son corps, à peine agité par intervalles d'un frisson machinal, connue un arbre air vent, à la roideur de ses coudes plus marbre que la rampe où ils s'appuyaient, à voir le sourire pétrifié qui contractait son visage, on eût dit qu'il n'y avait plus dans Claude Frollo que les yeux de vivant.

4.0 out of 5 stars how disney's Hunchback would be if I wrote it July 17 2000
Format:Paperback
I still do not have the faintest idea as to why Disney could possibly make this book into a children's movie. First of all, I would rate the unabridged book itself "PG-13"...but anyway. This book, more popularly known as "The Hunchback of Notre-Dame" (even though the plot circles around the Cathedral, not Quasimodo) is like a twisted "Romeo and Juliet" story sans star-crossed lovers. The real protagonist (in my opinion) is Esmarelda, the sixteen year old gypsy dancer. She falls passionatly in love with the chauvanistic stuff-shirt Captain Pheobus whotakes advatage of her love while meanwhile courting a young, rich noblewoman. Meanwhile, both Quasimodo the deaf bell-ringer and Claude Frollo the fanatical archdeacon fall madly in love with Esmerelda. So naturally things get quite chaotic when the gypsy is sentanced to death for "murdering" the captain. The action so is spectacular, especially the siege of Notre Dame, that I almost forgot I was reading it, not actually standing in Place de la Greve watching it all happen. Hopefully I don't give too much away when I say yes, there is a heck of a lot of dying going on throughout the book. This book, unfortunately, does have its long, slow, boring parts too...such as the beginning--just get through it and you'll be alright. And unless you are an ardent scholar of mideival architecture or French history, go ahead and skip the chapters titled "Notre-Dame" and "A birds eye view of Paris". P.S: my favorite part...Esmarelda's "marriage" to Pierre Gringiore, and also Gringiore's unhealthy obsession with the gypsy's goat

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful, grotesque, sublime novel March 23 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
The novel which is so poorly mistranslated as "The Hunchback of Notre-Dame" is one which sadly few people have read. Disney has done this novel a great injustice. Hugo paints an elaborate and incredible picture of 15th-century Paris. The main character is not Quasimodo, the infamous hunchback, but rather the cathedral of Notre Dame itself. It is a complex and powerful character who shifts dramatically depending on who percieves it. Hugo is a brilliant writer; each image is beautiful, each line a poem. The book is four hundred pages of pure poetry. I highly recommend this novel for anyone who appreciates good literature.

5.0 out of 5 stars Notre Dame de Paris Feb. 28 2012
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book arrived in excellent condition one day after it had been ordered. Upon arrival, I realized that I had mistakenly ordered the wrong version. Amazon's return & refund process worked very well and I have now re-ordered the version that I wanted. I am very pleased with Amazon's service.
