The Latin sentences and words were not understandable, but overall it was a very good read. Robert Harold Bray

A great Novel
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.
