A great Novel Oct 10, 2007
If one can read this long epic story it is well worth the effort. The characters are so rich and complex. Essmerelda especially. Her life is a soap opera. She is looking for her family and later reunite with her long lost mother. She gets married to a stranger to save his life, makes freinds with a hunchback, and stands trail for Pheobus' murder. It turns out Phoebus isn't really dead, but he does not want to admit that he was with a gypsy girl. Its all dramatic stuff.
Frollo is a great character too. He surivives the town scorn. He raises the orphaned hunchback as his own and becomes onsessed with the kind Essmerelda. Though a villian he is a sympathetic one.
