Not Hugo's best work in my opinion. It focuses heavily on the cathedral itself and some of the matters of Claude Frollo's interests in alchemy do little to advance the plot. However it has its occasional flashes of absolute brilliance, but it fails to compare to Hugo's best known work Les Miserables. However still worth reading, my favourite character was Djali the goat, which perhaps says something about the rest of the characters; the goat is by far the most interesting/entertaining.
