19th Century author who had a habit of killing off every single character worth getting attached to. Seriously, if you think The Hunchback of Notre Dame is gonna be anything like the Disney movie you're in for a big surprise. He was basically the John Green of the 1800's except worse. Probably had a bottle of his reader's tears somewhere.

Hugo has been dead for almost 200 years but still manages to woo his readers through his pretty words. You will find yourself crying about the way he describes scenery. Really.
Person 1: I'm reading a Victor Hugo book!
Person 2: don't get attatched to any of the characters
Person 1: the kid won't die
Person 2: ....
Person 1: the leader?
Person 2: ....
Person 1: main character?
Person 2: ......yikes
Person 1: DAMMIT HUGO
