I've got the same Alice book Sweetie, and I have to agree, it's fantastic.
Someone mentioned the original Hunchback of Notre Dame book by Victor Hugo. This book is my personal favorite of all time. It's a great novel with fanstatic writing and storylines on several levels. I like the Disney version, but in my opinion it just doesn't compare to the book. This story is different from the others that we are talking about in the fact that it is a story that is completely original and appears in only one version written by one man. (Well, besides Alice.)
I am suprised at how close the film does stay to the book though, especially that the storywriters kept Frollo's maddening lust for Esmerelda as his motivation for his evil. The Frollo in the book is a much more sympathetic and terrible character; he adopts Quasimodo out of the kindness of his heart and cares for his slacker younger brother as if he were his parent. Frollo's "Hellfire" scene with the fireplace is fantastic in the movie. The touchy-feely ending, however, dissapoints.
In the book, Phoebus is the only main character to survive (aside from Gringore, a character not included in the film, and Esmerelda's goat Djali.) It's no consolation though; he's a cad that feigns love with Esmerlda just for the "benefits " of the relationship. I don't want to give away any more, it's just a great story to find out for yourself.
I highly suggest this book to anyone here. It's size may be slighty intimidating and the first three chapters are pretty boring, but it's all worth it.
(And to correct what was said earlier, Quasi was deaf because of the volume of the bells he rang, not the other way around. Not to be picky or anything. )
