First Dumas and now this. First off: very, very difficult book to get into. I struggled through at least the first hundred pages, and Im not that hard to please. Secondly, up until this point, I have officially been wooed by nineteenth century French literature.
Secondly, up until this point, I had always thought that abridged novels were ridiculous. How could the editors take parts out and still have the story make sense? Upon reading unabridged Hugo, I understand. The man had complete chapters devoted to discussing the history of Paris or the history of the cathedral, and while I admit that it was a clever way to show off his knowledge and spread his political ideals, it was not what I bargained for. They just tried to secularize him to an equivalent position.
I argue that Frollo was the protagonist. The story spent most 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 with. The other characters in the novel were equally impressive.
I especially enjoyed one episode where Quasimodo was being questioned in court. The irony is that the judge was doing the same thing. Hugo created a deaf judge.
Anyway, a funny scene ensued, and Hugo made his point. I was afraid. I was scared that after stringing me along, Hugo was going to kill it at the end. And, to further please the happy reader, there were a million good quotes.
That is to be two, and yet one. A man and a woman joined, as into an ange; that is heaven! The small thing shall bring down the great things; a tooth triumphs over a whole carcass. The novel was difficult, but well worth the effort.
