By Charles Dickens
The greed of his kinfolk has led prosperous previous Martin Chuzzle wit to develop into suspicious and misanthropic, leaving his grandson and namesake to make his personal approach on this planet. And so younger Martin units out from the Wiltshire domestic of his meant champion, the scheming architect Pecksniff, to hunt his fortune in the US. In depicting Martin's trip - an adventure that teaches him to query his inherited self-interest and egotism - Dickens created many vividly learned figures: the brutish lout Jonas Chuzzlewit, plotting to achieve the relations fortune; Martin's confident manservant, Mark Tapley; light Tom Pinch; and the drunken and corrupt inner most nurse, Mrs Gamp. With its portrayal of greed, blackmail and homicide, and its searing satire on the United States Dickens' novel is a strong and blackly shaggy dog story of hypocrisy and redemption.

Feared and hated through all, Quasimodo is sorted through Dom Claude Frollo, a stern, chilly priest who ignores the bad hunchback within the face of his widespread public torture. yet anyone steps ahead to help—the appealing gypsy Esmeralda, whose unmarried act of kindness fills Quasimodo with love. Can the hunchback shop the stunning gypsy from Frollo’s evil plan, or will all of them perish within the shadows of Notre Dame?
An epic story of attractiveness and disappointment, The Hunchback of Notre Dame portrays the sufferings of humanity with compassion and power.
