This extraordinary historical novel, set in Medieval Paris under the twin towers of its greatest structure and supreme symbol, the cathedral of Notre-Dame, is the haunting drama of Quasimodo, the hunchback; Esmeralda, the gypsy dancer; and Claude Frollo, the priest tortured by the specter of his own damnation.

[recenzja również na: swiatyzpolki.blogspot.com] "Jeśli przyszłaś z piekła - pójdę za tobą do piekła." Każdemu obiła się o uszy animacja Disney'a pod tytułem Dzwonnik z Notre Dame.
