by Selina on October 11, 2007I 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 can still be seen it today's word, which is why "Les Miserables" is a timeless tale.
Its nice to see a story concerned with redemption. Jean Valjean starts out as a criminal an rises as a politician and even raises a foster daughter. He is a compassionate man haunted by his past life.
