The photo of the hardback version shows the first book there are 3 all together to form the full story , but I received the second. It's in very good condition, but just a bit misleading as to what you're actually receiving.
Ein sehr spezielles, grosses Werk.

This is not spoiler free. But then, seriously, didn't you already watch the musical??? Finally finished! I started this in March, and it has taken six months to get to the bitter end. This was well and truly one of the more painful reads I've done. Hugo just goes on and on and on. No more, no more. Given the reams that have been written about this book, what is there left to say about it? Well, for one thing, the musical does a very decent job of capturing the heart of the story.
What was not in the musical can safely be missed. Nevertheless, there are some episodes that I found truly worth reading that did not make it into the musical. So, to spare you the pain of reading the novel, here they are: He wasn't even young and handsome, but was middle-aged, short, bald, fat, and stupid. She had terrible taste. There is a heartwrenching chapter where he and his friends tell their lovers that they have a surprise for them.
They take them out for dinner. After dinner, they tell their lovers that they are going to get their surprise and to wait for them.
The surprise is, of course, that they are being abandoned. Instead, he is captured and sent to hard labour at the docks. When a sailor on a ship falls off a high mast and hangs on to a rope for dear life, it is Jean Valjean who clambers up the mast to save him. After bringing him to safety, he "accidentally" slips off the mast and falls into the sea.
He is thought dead, but of course survives the fall to go look for Cosette. The convent is completely closed off to outsiders, which is why the police never think to look for him there. Fauchelevent, who works there as a gardener, helps Jean by claiming that Jean is his brother who needs a job.
However, they have a problem.
They can't explain to the mother superior how Jean Valjean got into the convent, so they need to smuggle Jean Valjean outside so that he can then be brought in by its front gate to meet the mother superior. Fortunately, one of the nuns dies and has to be buried. As she asked to be illegally buried under the altar of the church, Fauchelevent helps the convent out by fulfilling her last wish.
However, they still need to bury something as all deaths are recorded by the city. Jean Valjean is smuggled into the "empty" coffin and, by this means, is taken outside the convent to the cemetery to be buried in her place. He is almost buried alive when their plan goes awry, but some quick thinking by Fauchelevent saves his life. Unlike the musical, he does not wholeheartedly take up the cause of revolution. He's been too busy mooning over Cosette to even know what is going on.
When he thinks that he's lost Cosette, he decides that he cannot live without her. The revolution happily breaks out on the same day. In a depressed daze, he wanders to the barricades and decides to join the cause so he can die. Later, he chases Jean Valjean away when Jean confesses his past to him.
Jean Valjean does not go into hiding voluntarily as he does in the musical. Prevented from seeing his adopted daughter, Cosette, he dies of a broken heart. I'm truly impressed that Les Miserables actually got the laws in France changed for the better. From Graham Robb's biography of Victor Hugo One can see here the impact of Les Miserables on the Second Empire…. The State was trying to clear its name. The Emperor and Empress performed some public acts of charity and brought philanthropy back into fashion.
There was a sudden surge of official interest in penal legislation, the industrial exploitation of women, the care of orphans, and the education of the poor. In that regard, it was a little like Uncle Tom's Cabin. This achievement definitely earns it its place in the French canon.
However, I think like Uncle Tom's Cabin , its age definitely shows. Overall, I'm glad I read it but outside of its historical value—the history of the novel, the socio-cultural conditions of France in the 19th century—I'm not sure it's worthwhile ploughing through. I definitely didn't enjoy it as much as some of the other canonical works of that period. Personally, unless you have some kind of fetish for 19th century works, I'd stick to just watching the musical.
It has much better songs. And it'll take less time. View all 3 comments. C'est pas court. View 1 comment. Les Mis is a classic novel that uses a lot of symbolism to describe life and the trials people face every day. Although slightly pessimistic, Victor Hugo does an excellent job of capturing those naked feelings that people face everyday, and portrays them in a very appropriate manner.
Main character, Jean Valjean, faces a series of choices that will determine his fate while he is chased by Javert, another main character.

Throughout all their tribulations, they both learn valuable lessons at the close of the story, and forever are changed men.
This book was a tough read for me, and it took persistence to finish to the end. The style of writing is very thick, and it is more for an experienced reader, or for someone who has a mentour etc. I would recommend this book to someone who wants to read a good classic. This book is not for everyone, and I think it requires extreme maturity to be able to understand the deepest intentions and meanings of the author.
All together its a great book with deep philosophies!

I'd say this is one of the better text adaptations for French learners. I've been putting this book off for a while, firstly because its quite big and comes in two volumes and secondly the font size is pretty small. And like the show in London, every time we visit we have a chat about going to see this and end up watching something else. But the time had come to pick it up and to stop putting it off. It starts off well, I enjoyed the first part of the story.
It then skips to new characters and I was a bit confused as to what was going on and then all of a sudden ever I've been putting this book off for a while, firstly because its quite big and comes in two volumes and secondly the font size is pretty small.
It then skips to new characters and I was a bit confused as to what was going on and then all of a sudden everything clicks into place and all becomes clear. It carries on like this throughout the book, but after the first deviation, I was prepared and knew there was a reason for the deviation.
Overall I did enjoy this, but the descriptions can be long and I sometimes felt you get a lot of background on a character for them to only be in it for 5 mins!!
The ending felt a bit strange to me too but I wonder if that is because there is another volume to read. I look forward to finding out what happens in the rest of the story and will now be going to see the show especially as I have had a few recommendations from people who have seen what I was reading although I'm not sure how they will portray it on stage. Jean Valjean is a convict after stealing bread to feed his family.
