SOME ADVICE:
It is best to get an abridged copy of this story. Victor Hugo was concidered a bit "wordy" even in his time.
Toning down some parts doesn't ruin this particular story in any way.
I LOVE the story!
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Although at times hard to read, this novel is amazing. The ending is sensational and it is well worth struggling through. However, if you are not an English geek who wants to analyze every scene to identify foreshadowing and symbolism, I would recommend skipping certain descriptive sections. For instance, Hugo spends the first fourteen or so chapters describing the Bishop of Digne who, although influential, does not physically appear much in the book.

A vast magnificent tapestry set against the background of political upheaval in France during the post-Napoleonic era.
