I have fficially been wooed by nineteenth century French literature First Dumas and now this I just finished reading Victor Hugo s The Hunchback Pantyhose Professionals (Pantyhose Diaries Book 2) of Notre Dame and it was fantastic The characters the themes the literary structures Ahhh swoonsBefore I proclaim my love affair with Victor Hugo I have to mention some negatives Firstff very very difficult book to get into I struggled through at least the first hundred pages and I m not that hard to please Secondly up until this point I had always thought that abridged novels were ridiculous How could the editors take parts ut and still have the story make sense Upon reading unabridged Hugo I understand The man had complete chapters devoted to discussing the history f Paris Masterchef Junior Cookbook: Bold Recipes and Essential Techniques to Inspire Young Cooks or the historyf the cathedral and while I admit that it was a clever way to show Black Macho and the Myth of the Superwoman off his knowledge and spread his political ideals it was not what I bargained forThe novel would have been accurately titled The Archdeaconf Notre Dame Frollo was 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 Study of Organ Inferiority and Its Psychical Compensation; A Contribution to Clinical Medicine - Scholar's Choice Edition of its time with him his internal struggle his plotting And his character was fantastic He was underhanded 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 withThether characters in the novel were eually impressive Esmeralda s sweet strong innocence she was Heaven Next Stop only sixteen and foolish devotion to Phoebus is heart wrenching uasimodo s strengthf body and heart is awe inspiring Phoebus selfish arrogance is antagonizing The minor characters from the ld heckling woman to the foolish young Frollo the Archdeacon s brother to the rambling philosopher create a motley portrait f a fascinating worldHugo s ccasional comments n society cannot go unnoted I especially enjoyed Bases Loaded one episode where uasimodo was being uestioned in court In the novel unlike in the Disney movie uasimodo is deaf so as he is being uestioned he tries to anticipate the judge s uestions 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 partf the story maybe there were just so many good Have A Good Night, Volume 1 ones was likely Hugo s portrayalf love Love was everywhere the inexplicable love Frollo had for his useless brother the love that caused Frollo to accept uasimodo the love that broke a mother s heart at the loss f her daughter the faithful love that sent uasimodo to Frollo with his tail between his legs But the most stunning and provocative f all was the comparison f the three men who loved Esmeralda ne man loving her so much that he wanted to possess her When You Lose Your Job one man loving her for the moment until another girl came along andne 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 wn 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 uotes Here you go Oh love That is to be two and yet ne A man
