    Les Miserables was one of those books that sat on my bookshelf for years untouched, not because I didn't want to read it, but because I was intimidated to. I had heard so much rumor about the book — or, more likely, about the musical and movie, since I doubt most of the people saying it have actually read the 1200+ page book. I even knew that author Victor Hugo himself wanted to publicize it and glorify it before its publication, hinting at its reputation as a classic masterpiece. Somehow, tho [...]

    Having seen the musical once and listened to the soundtrack hundreds of times it was interesting to read the novel when you go into it knowing all the characters but only having a vague memory of the story. I'd put this book in that category of special and rare books I consider "life changing" in that I cannot stop thinking about it every day multiple times a day. In my head, I keep rolling around the morals vs. ethics themes in this book so well illustrated by Jean Valjean and Javert.The pacing [...]

    Les Miserables takes place in 19th century France, from the end of Napoleon’s rule to the start of the revolution. The story is about an ex-convict named Jean Valjean who served nineteen years in prison for stealing a loaf of bread. Because he’s an ex-convict no one will give him a place to stay except for the bishop Myriel. Valjean steals the bishop’s silver and runs away but is caught and brought back. The bishop then gives Valjean the silver and tells him to use it to become an honest m [...]

    This is not a book for the faint of heart. It took me scores of hours to read it, and that was with a good deal of skimming. Mr. Hugo has the old-fashioned habit of rabbit-trailing—often for five or six chapters at a time. As soon as he left the storyline, I started clicking my Kindle with the briefest scan of a page. He does a lot of name dropping, a good deal of drifting into politics and histories (particularly French history that I’m not well-versed in), and his commentary on related sub [...]

    This is my first review on . I came across this book when I googled for good emotional books to read. Les Miserables is the longest book I ever read. I read it in bits and pieces over a span of almost 6 months. This book was a tough read for me, partly because of the language used and mainly because the author has the tendency to go to extreme depths to introduce a character or to build up the plot. Examples of these depths are Battle of Waterloo, French Revolution, Parisian gamin, French conven [...]

    VH used so many words I have nothing to add :) Other than a confession that about halfway through I started skimming the expository parts and it still took me 3 months to read this book! The translation I read was superb. I can see why this is a classic.

    The story is so good and the writing beautiful but his background stories are often incredibly boring

    Les Misérables: the name is a diamond among literary buffs. Commonly associated with the acclaimed 1980 opera, Les Misérables is Victor Hugo’s powerful gospel of French society. The novel chronicles the tale of Jean-Valjean, a former convict who embarks on an Odyssey of absolution in the years following his release from prison. He had been imprisoned for nineteen years: five for stealing a loaf of bread to feed his sister’s starving children, and the additional fourteen years being the r [...]

    Les Miserables by Victor HugoIs there any book more famous than Les Miserables?Maybe dan Brown’s Inferno…And then many people know the name from the many adaptations based on the book.When I look some book up on the net, there is a tendency to find first the movie and only then the book.The other day it happened with Breakfast at Tiffany’s and I will not Was it last year that another production was nominated for many Academy Awards and even won a few?The story of Jean Valjean, Cosette, Mar [...]

    This is a book that is not for those who aren't willing to commit to a heady task. The unabridged version is not called "the Brick" without reason. However, if you're willing to set aside time to embark on this literary journey, I highly recommend this read.Jean Valjean is a bread thief who is finally released from prison after 19 years, most of his time amounting from multiple escape attempts. Inspector Javert is a very ambitious and very by-the-book policeman who reminds Valjean that, while he [...]

    I really enjoyed this book. The writing was very clever and the story was engaging, even if the characters were a bit two-dimensional. Even though the story was serious it was also very humorous at times, I'm not sure if the author meant it to be like that but it made me laugh. The legal system seemed much too harsh in the early 1800's and it seems that the main point of the book was to judge people not by their past but by their present actions if they have atoned for their misdeeds of the past [...]

    Easily one of the best books ever written. Definitely a must read.You know that moment when everything in a really complicated plot suddenly makes sense? Or when something super crazy and unexplained happens in a story that changes everything so much that you have to stop reading and just stop and process it? This book has more than one of those (and I've never seen more than one in a story before). It's incredible. It's an amazing blend between fantastic story telling and profound thoughts on l [...]

    I read it on the recommendation of a high school teacher for a project and never looked back. I honestly didn't expect to like it. But the STORY. The CHARACTERS. Oh my god. It's just such a good portrayal of what happened. Not going to lie, it was heavy and hard to get through. I actually read an abridged version and it was still rather heavy. It's a monster of a book. But it also takes your soul and rips it into little itty bitty bit size pieces and then chews them up and feeds them to the poor [...]

    I will continue to read Victor Hugo; I feel like a connect to his ideals and sympathies. I appreciate the historical perspective, and I love the characters, their moral dilemmas, they way that they move through their experiences/adventures/heartaches/tragedies. I plan to re-read significant (to me) issues when I am not in the excitement of the story. For example, Hugo's thoughts about the effect of abject poverty/the bottom of society on children who are never supported, and that situation which [...]

    I finished it minutes ago ! Can't deny its an amazing classic by victor hugo The sophistication of events makes u fall further more into the novelAt the outset ,injustice was the only hero and its clearly seen through out the novel and what happened with fantine and cosette makes u think how pathetic their lives were that it couldn't be worse." That is how God balances things out.He watches us all from above and knows what he is doing among his splendid stars." This quote struck me as I read th [...]

    Les Miserables is one of my all-time favorite books and operettas about a poor man named Jean Valjean, a poor man who steals bread and is sent to prison. He escapes prison which angers the police man, Javert who spends his whole life looking for him. Jean Valjean meets a priest who gives him candlesticks to start a new life. As a new man, Jean Valjean becomes mayor and changes his entire lifestyle and what kind of person he wants to be. He takes in a young girl named Cossette from her dying moth [...]

    Reader Response: I had a hard time understanding this book. However, because I read it in English class we were able to discuss it better. It was a hard read for me but some parts were better than others. At first I wasn’t sure why he was jumping from character to character but then I understood once I got to the end of the book. I think it is a sad book, so not my favorite of all time, but still good content. Teacher Response: Personally I think this is a trickery book to teach because it is [...]

    4-1/2 starsAwwww man! Valjean begrudgingly saved Marius's life because of moral obligation and not out of love for Cosette and the desire for her happiness?! That was really disheartening, as I had believed (from seeing the film and play before reading the book) that he had done it out of love. Still an amazing book but I gotta knock it a 1/2-star because of my crushing disappointment. This is one of the only times I will ever say that the movie (starring Hugh Jackman) was as good as the book. I [...]

    I think I would give this book four and a half stars simply because of the long narratives about the Battle of Waterloo, the sewers of Paris, etc but the author's language (even translated) is amazing. I was trying to finish the book by September 23 for a book club meeting, but didn't quite make it. (It took 3 or 4 months, I don't remember exactly how long, and I skimmed through a lot of the aforementioned long narratives.)After having seen the Liam Neeson movie and the musical movie, I enjoyed [...]

    This book was AMAZING!!! Absolutely going on my favorites book shelf. I do have one advisory of it though. Victor Hugo has very strong political views so roughly 20% of this book is based on the ignorance of Napoleon or some other major France political figure from the 19th century. Stick with it and find one of the best books you have ever read!Oh, my absolute favorite part was when Eponine was dying, and Monsieur Marius was laughing off her bullet wound by protesting that no one ever died from [...]

    I was extremely surprised at how quickly I fell in love with this book. The language is amazing and very easy to understand. The only times I felt lost were when the author went deep into french war history, which luckily only happened a couple times. I never wanted to put it down and basically didn't on vacation (I read 1300 pages in 5 days). I knew I loved the story of Les Mis from the movie, but you don't get to experience the full measure of jean valjeans character without reading the book. [...]

    I did a bad thing and saw the movie before I read the book, however it was interesting to see how they compare and as far as the main points of the book go they did well to cram it all into the movie! AnywayThere were a few parts that seemed a chore to get through (and perhaps irrelevant to the rest of the story!), but it doesn't take away from the brilliant characters. I loved reading the backstory of the characters and how they connect with each other and once I got to the last half of the boo [...]

    OMG this book isn't for the faint hearted, after seeing the musical and watching the film(I no I shouldn't watch the film before reading the book I'm sorry) I knew I was ready for the sad and the very sad parts, but few! I had finally finished the over 1200 worded book. Yes it is a big number but I assure you The pages will fly through your fingertips. Victor Hugo really captures the trauma and misery of the French revalution, the type I read had a translation at the bottom of the pages to help [...]

    Just once in my life I wanted to read the WHOLE thing. It took me months, but I did it! I adored Jean Valjean (and agreed with him about Marius--he was kind of a ninny)and hated the Thenardiers (the were delectably wicked, though). Ironically, if I hadn't have read the whole thing, I might have given it 5 stars instead of 4. I didn't see the point of the long, explanatory chapters. Way too much about the battle of Waterloo, for example, that wasn't at all relevant to the story. And there were so [...]

    Fernando Franco felix
    The plot is very good, and the writing is excellent, but I did not like it because Victor Hugo couldn't shut up. He went on and on about stupid things. For example he once makes a four pages description of cart, and he goes on saying that Shakespeare would have armed with it one character and that Homer another. And lets not forget the part of the battle of Waterloo, that I liked a lot, but tat had nothing to do with the plot. Had he took those pages and published them as another text I would lo [...]

    Very good book. I was surprised by how close it was to the musical. The narrative was very compelling, and it was more gripping at times than I expected. But there also were long tangents into topics like the battle of Waterloo, a certain order of cloistered nuns, the street urchins of Paris, etc. The only tangent that I really enjoyed was when he started talking about slang and providing justification for using it in fiction. Otherwise during the tangents I kept wanting to get back to the chara [...]
