Scouring Books: The Hunchback of Notre-Dame

The Hunchback of Notre-Dame
by Victor Hugo

Originally published in 1831, and a huge favorite from my high school literature days (from the same Prudence Grant class that led to my continuing interest in the Canterbury Tales), a classic that truly deserves perpetual publication on its own merits (not strictly, as I suspect some are, based on their historical significance, and not just the ones you might immediately consider), possibly directly recommended to anyone who has ever considered themselves to be an outcast. Eventually became one of the most unlikely Disney animated movies.

Bookshelf status: read.
