Notre Dame de Paris by Victor Hugo was not what I first expected, and by this I mean it was much better. I just felt like reading something ultra classic, and good for the wintertime – partly inspired by our trip to Paris! The story is absolutely not what Disney pictured, as it rotates around sexual desire and extreme passion. Each chapter is a delight. I love the way history, fantastic stories, monsters, architecture and humor are mixed together. Somehow in English the book is called The Hunchback of Notredame.
