We’re 55% through, it’s about time!
Diego Carrillo

Jeremy Greenberg
10:26
I liked the last 55%
Leo
10:56
So far, it’s probably his weakest book.
Jeremy Greenberg
11:00
not for me
Jeremy Greenberg
11:09
yes
Diego Carrillo
11:14
Before this reading, I was kind of forcing mysself to read it, but now I actually wanted to read it
Leo
11:24
I really liked 93 and Les Mis
Jeremy Greenberg
11:36
This book is my second-favorite Victor Hugo novel
Timothy
11:44
it’s one of the best stories but one of the weakest writings of victor hugo
Jeremy Greenberg
13:05
I liked how Victor Hugo set it up
Jeremy Greenberg
13:30
I thought it was good that he took his time creating the characters
Timothy
13:37
yes
Diego Carrillo
13:40
Yes
Jeremy Greenberg
14:10
I remember
Jeremy Greenberg
15:09
yes
Jeremy Greenberg
15:30
and why I thought it IS his most interesting story
Leo
15:32
what, sorry?
Kira
15:34
yeah
Leo
15:55
Probably that
Leo
16:22
It’s funny you compare it to Hunchback though, because I think that’s his second weakest (but only because 93 and Le Mis are so good)
Diego Carrillo
17:36
Yes
Jeremy Greenberg
17:41
yes
Jeremy Greenberg
18:34
I liked how Hugo described like a sowrdfight
Diego Carrillo
18:37
It was funny

Me neither but that makes sense now
Leo
20:49

Jeremy Greenberg
20:56

Leo
21:04
I remember that, I just didn’t remember the nickname
Timothy
22:09

Jeremy Greenberg

Diego Carrillo
22:15
I don't think so
Kira
22:15
no
Timothy
22:22
I mean there’s no other pressing conflict right now
Diego Carrillo
22:24
But it's possible
Leo
22:25
hmm
Skye
22:30
hm
Jeremy Greenberg
22:42
that would destroy everything Hugo has built with his character
Timothy
22:55
he likes to do that a lot
Timothy
23:40
yes
Jeremy Greenberg
23:43
I don't think so
Timothy
24:05
Claude Frollo, Javert, etc
Jeremy Greenberg
24:10
normally the moral characters remain moral—like Jean'
Leo
24:24
Claude was once moral
Jeremy Greenberg
24:38
but he was never the good guy
Leo
24:50
no, but he was considered moral
Diego Carrillo
24:58
I haven't
Skye
24:59
I have not no
Jeremy Greenberg
25:21
Gwynplaine seems much stronger than Claude
Kira
25:54

Diego Carrillo
