Hunchback of Notre-Dame
Hunchback of Notre-Dame | Victor Hugo
Here is the haunting drama of Quasimodo, the hunchback; Esmeralda, the gypsy dancer; and Claude Frollo, the priest tortured by his own damnation. Shaped by a profound sense of tragic irony, it is a work that gives full play to the author's brilliant imagination.

Notre-Dame de Paris | Victor Hugo

#OnThisDay in 1831, Gosselin published Victor Hugo's Notre Dame de Paris (commonly known as The Hunchback of Notre Dame). The cathedral had fallen into disrepair, and Hugo wrote a novel centering on the beautiful space in an attempt to save it. His writing sparked renewed interest in Gothic Architecture across France and led to a major restoration project for the titular cathedral. #HistoryGetsLIT

Will read again. Found myself skimming the essay portions to get to the plot.

Not exactly Christmasy but #Bells always makes me think of Quasimodo and the Hunchback of Notre Dame.

I‘ve lost track of how many puzzles this book took me. I restarted it several times before it caught. Perhaps I‘d have done better with print but I did quite enjoy the narrator so I‘m not sure what the problem was. The writing was amazing, obviously this is a classic for a reason, and it was good to finally pick this up.

wanderinglynn Ooh, I like that puzzle 🧩 10mo
janeycanuck @wanderinglynn It was a fun one to do! 10mo
Kimzey I love audio puzzling! 10mo

This book is really long. The story is good. But I think Hugo tried to use every word in the French language. It could have been a novella. And there is definitely a lack of talking gargoyles. But the goat is cute.

The picture is from a trip I took in 2018. And isn't it stunning? The people who made this didn't even have electricity. Just some random perspective.

BarbaraBB It is stunning 🤩 12mo
IuliaC It is amazing indeed how they built cathedrals, which are tremendous architectural jewels, without the resources we have today 12mo

I enjoyed Victor Hugo's writing so much that I decided to read The Hunchback of Notre Dame next. #ReadingClassicsIn2020

My 11 year old is in a "sleep at 2am wake at 11am" cycle and as she is in her parents bed, I thought I'd play my audiobook of The Hunchback of Notre Dame to help her (us) sleep. Hubby is up also so the 3 of us are listening.

I unfortunately don't own my own copy of this book but looking at the chapter lengths I roughly added up around 22 hours!
Let's see how we go...

Many comic adaptations based on famous books have been published recently. Of course, the comic will not replace the original book, but for many readers the comic will become a self-contained work and I'm sure that some will even want to read the original source or reread it 😉

#BFCr4 #week4 (I think)

Finally my check in.
NO soda - I‘ve had zero soda
Meditation - 3x this past week
No exercise
No stretching
Read about 25 books or so (mostly children‘s books)
I did finish the tagged book last week so I‘m happy about that, and it turned out pretty good. This past week and the beginning of this week has been lacking in a lot of motivation. I‘ve been super tired, and haven‘t been able to get over that hump.

wanderinglynn I always find myself tired and dragging around this time of year. The seasons changing, the time change, it all seems to effect me. Hang in there. 💚 You had a great week not drinking soda, meditating, & reading. 🙌🏻 3y
jb72 @wanderinglynn Thanks! I don‘t know what happened to me yesterday, but I was so tired I couldn‘t move. Hopefully today is a better and more productive day. 3y

A truly remarkable classic novel. At first it felt like it would take forever for me to read but as I read more and more of it, I found myself transported to 15th century France. I found myself so entrapped by the characters and their story lines l, that I couldn‘t put the book down. This was a very gratifying read. 🔔🇫🇷
