I am a huge fan of the orginal, I read it every couple of years. I picked up this version by accident, not realizing it was an adaptation. If you have never read the orginal then this is a great book that tells the basic story. But I truely missed the orginal language and cadence of Hugo. Now that you know the basics, please take the time and dive head first into Hugo's world of splendid visions. There is truely nothing like it, and you will not be disappointed.

Absolutely wonderful. This story is so imaginative and captivating. I have not seen the movie or play so reading this for a library contest was at first something I thought I would dread, it was wonderful, I just cannot say enough about the surprise I encountered when I finished this book and was left wanting more. In my opinion a must read.
