At one level a detective story in which the relentless Inspector Javert obsessively pursues the escaped convict Jean Valjean, culminating in a dramatic chase through the sewers of Paris, at another level Hugo's masterpiece is a drama of crime, punishment and rehabilitation set against a panoramic description of French society in the years after Napoleon's fall from power. But this book is also about the metaphysical struggle between good and evil in the soul of every man and every community. Coloured by Hugo's distinctive philosophy, it is a plea for social justice, political enlightenment and personal charity which continues to speak with the undiminished authority more than a century after its first appearance.Hide synopsis

Les Miserables :
One of my all time favourites!! So beautifully written, this book got me reading again after 15 yrs.
I found the parts about the revolution etc. a little hard to follow at first?but I would say to anyone ?don?t put it down!!? The book is kind of dark and dreary. But those were ...
For ten years after reading Les Miserables I took inspiration from it in regard to how I
treated other people. The unabridged version has some places that are hard to
understand why Hugo included them but in all it was a superb read and I recommend
to anyone who wants to understand redemption.
Excellent Book. Victor Hugo is a remarkable author easily compared to Henrik Sinkewitz in his writing style. The book is historically accurate which adds to the value of reading the book and following the storyline. Hugo does an excellent job depicting the Battle of Waterloo and takes a whole chapter ...
I had to read this for a class and while not as exciting as "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" it was a pretty good book. Hugo took a social issue and wrote an epic story. Expressing the plight of the poor in this beautifuly constructive narrative it opens ones eyes to important issues. Alot of the complaints ...
