I read this first in English, and later in French. It was one of the most popular novels in French of the 19th century, and the story is rewarding if you stick with it.

Some of the most beautiful English written here by a French national. Written by a man with an extraordinary breadth of experience for his time, an epic romantic fantasy, and a stark portrayal of the commoner struggling for independence from the morass of religious and governmental autocracy. Written in the dawning of French revolution, and full of interesting historical anthropological tidbits. Definitely worth the 1000+ page read.
