"Notre Dame or The Bellringer of Paris" is a classic novel by Victor Hugo, often referred to as "The Hunchback of Notre Dame." Set in 15th-century Paris, the story revolves around the iconic Notre Dame Cathedral and its inhabitants, including the deformed and kind-hearted bellringer Quasimodo. The novel delves into the themes of love, prejudice, and social inequality, as well as the importance of preserving historical and architectural heritage.

The story follows the lives of several characters, including the beautiful and kind-hearted gypsy girl Esmeralda, the ambitious and unscrupulous archdeacon Claude Frollo, and the brave but flawed Captain Phoebus. Their intertwining lives result in a tragic tale of love, betrayal, and redemption. The novel also explores the broader societal issues of its time, providing a vivid depiction of the city of Paris and its people.
