    One of the most beloved gothic romances ever written, and a poignant evocation of life in medieval Paris and the grand towers of the Notre Dame Cathedral.  Hated by the people of Paris for his deformity, bell ringer Quasimodo lives in Notre Dame Cathedral by the good graces of his guardian, Archdeacon Claude Frollo. But Frollo’s commitment to Christian charity is giving way to his obsession with a young gypsy girl named Esmerelda. Driven to win her over at any cost, Frollo turns from his faith to practice alchemy. When Quasimodo is tortured and publicly humiliated for his part in Frollo’s scheme, Esmerelda alone shows him pity. And when she is wrongly accused of a crime, only Quasimodo can provide the sanctuary she needs.   Originally published under the title Notre-Dame de Paris, Victor Hugo’s tragic story of love and persecution has been adapted into numerous films, stage plays, and other mediums. Famous for its epic depiction of Paris and people of all walks of life, this classic tale inspired the works of novelists Honoré de Balzac, Gustave Flaubert, and Charles Dickens, among others.  This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.

    Gabriel Oak is only one of three suitors for the hand of the beautiful and spirited Bathsheba Everdene. He must compete with the dashing young soldier Sergeant Troy and the respectable, middle-aged Farmer Boldwood. And while their fates depend upon the choice Bathsheba makes, she discovers the terrible consequences of an inconstant heart.Far from the Madding Crowd was the first of Hardy's novels to give the name Wessex to the landscape of southwest England and the first to gain him widespread popularity as a novelist. Set against the backdrop of the unchanging natural cycle of the year, the story both upholds and questions rural values with a startlingly modern sensibility.

    The most perfect of Jane Austen's perfect novels begins with twenty-one-year-old Emma Woodhouse comfortably dominating the social order in the village of Highbury, convinced that she has both the understanding and the right to manage other people's lives-for their own good, of course. Her well-meant interfering centers on the aloof Jane Fairfax, the dangerously attractive Frank Churchill, the foolish if appealing Harriet Smith, and the ambitious young vicar Mr. Elton-and ends with her complacency shattered, her mind awakened to some of life's more intractable dilemmas, and her happiness assured.Austen's comic imagination was so deft and beautifully fluent that she could use it to probe the deepest human ironies while setting before us a dazzling gallery of characters-some pretentious or ridiculous, some admirable and moving, all utterly true.

    When White Fang was first published in 1906, Jack London was well on his way to becoming one of the most famous, popular, and highly paid writers in the world. White Fang stands out as one of his finest achievements, a spellbinding novel of life in the northern wilds.In gripping detail, London bares the savage realities of the battle for survival among all species in a harsh, unyielding environment. White Fang is part wolf, part dog, a ferocious and magnificent creature through whose experiences we see and feel essential rhythms and patterns of life in the animal kingdom and among mankind as well.It is, above all, a novel that keenly observes the extraordinary working of one of nature's greatest gifts to its creatures: the power to adapt. Focusing on this wondrous process, London created in White Fang a classic adventure story as fresh and appealing for today's audiences as for those who made him among the bestselling novelists of his day
