A story of adventure, this book yet again traverses the depths of human character but for the first time, it’s not dark, depressing or sad. The sort of story that Hugo was famous for, at that time, this story talks about a reclusive fisherman who must do all in his power to free a ship that has run aground. At the same time, he harbours hopes for asking the hand of the shipowner’s daughter.

What makes this book stand out?

A glorious cast of characters.
