Too lengthy to be enjoyable
am 22. März 2015
I was looking forward to reading this classic unabridged: Little did I know that it was going to be so lengthy that it felt like a torture of the mind. Hugo inserts so many side tracks and historic allusions that one cannot appreciate the development of the story when it actually continues. I was so fed up with the continuing discontinuation of the events that I gave up after having mastered three quarters of the book. No wonder German editions are so abridged and shortened that their length equals about a third of the original tome.
