Okay I m glad I read this book if only to find out just how badly Disney ruined the story for the sake of their embarassing excuse for a film the horrendous straight to video seuel which I fortunately only saw previews for will not be spoken of at all Victor Hugo has a gift for the most ungodly depressing stories but he writes very well when he s not rambling pointlessly to stretch out his page count But I can t bring myself to give this four stars and for one simple reason with the exception of uasimodo and Esmeralda every single character in this book is an insufferable dickhead Frollo obviously deserves to be fed to sharks simply for the mind boggling levels of creepiness he manages to achieve over the course of the story Phoebus is even of a fratboy asshole that I d previously thought and the way he decides to seduce Esmeralda despite the fact that she s the Gypsy euivalent of a vestal virgin made me want to teleport into the story so I could kick him in the nuts Frollo s younger brother Jehan is a relatively minor character but he gets mentioned because in every single scene he appears in he s constantly yammering away and trying to be clever and witty the result being that he makes Jar Jar Binks seem terribly endearing in comparison And Gringoire I had such hope for him He starts out promising but then once Esmeralda gets arrested all he can worry about is the stupid goat because I guess he thinks she s cuter than his fucking wife who saved his fucking life When he joins Frollo to get Esmeralda out of the catherdral he leaves the sixteen year old girl with Pastor Pedo McCreepy and chooses to save the goat The fucking goat One final word of advice skip the chapter entitled A Bird s Eye View of Paris It s thirty pages of pointless babbling about what Paris looks like from Notre Dame and it is impossible to read all the way through without wanting to stab yourself in the eyes with the first sharp object you can reachI know what you re saying Thirty pages Pfft that s nothing I can get through that I read Ulysses First of all you did not Second no you cannot get through these thirty pages Mind numbing does not do it justice It is pointless Don t say I didn t warn you
