Publisher's Summary

In the Gothic towers of the cathedral of Notre-Dame - which has been subjected to decades of degradation and neglect - lives its bell ringer, Quasimodo. Persecuted as wicked and pilloried for his broken appearance, he’s shown kindness only by the alluring Esmeralda, an outsider herself, who fills Quasimodo’s heart with a hope and devotion beyond reason. When she falls victim to the lies of the vengeful and lustful Archdeacon Claude Frollo, only Quasimodo can save her from the gallows. In sanctuary, looming high above Paris, their fates entwine.

The Hunchback of Notre-Dame stands as a tribute to the medieval city Victor Hugo loved and to a vulnerable monument he feared would crumble to dust.

Revised edition: Previously published as The Hunchback of Notre-Dame, this edition of The Hunchback of Notre-Dame (AmazonClassics Edition) includes editorial revisions.

A bit too much for me!

I wanted to catch up with some classics but the story of Quasimodo is lost in Hugo's discussion of, amongst other things, the death of architecture on the birth of printing, the history of Paris etc, etc, etc. Some of the text was interesting but I'm afraid that I became disengaged because I just wanted to listen to the story not the "fluff". The narration, however, was superb.
