    I finished part one which means I m halfway through It took some getting used to the writing style of Hugo He has a tendency to draw out the descriptions on everything, perhaps a littlethan strictly necessary, but it did give me a great understanding of the world of Les Miserables and why the characters are the way they are There were two tangent descriptions that I found myself skimming however, the description of Wate...

    This review is for the three volumes, not just this first one.I have been reading this great work for so long six months that I need to go through the cathartic experience of reviewing it just to resolve it in my mind It was a re reading, in French, so I can t tell anyone what the translation into English is like I do wonder how a translator copes with linguistic puns, which Hugo is fond of, and an entire section on argot I hesitate to use the word slang of such a highly developed form This review is for the three volumes, not just this first one.I have been reading this great work for so long six months that I need to go through the cathartic experience of reviewing it just to resolve it in my mind It was a re reading, in French, so I can t tell anyone what the translation into English is like I do wonder how a translator copes with linguistic puns, which Hugo is fond of, and an entire section on argot I hesitate to use the word slang of such a highly developed form of language the nearest equivalent may have been Cockney English in its heyday There are several of these historical or discursive sections, as we meet their context in the narrative, which to the modern reader can have the effect of slowing down the tale Personally I find the story so powerful that I can only read it...

    A truly brilliant and timeless novel Yes, the author does tend to ramble, but he presents so beautifully the honorable yet ultimately tragic beliefs of the revolutionaries, the transformation of Jean Valjean from brute peasant into a truly great man who lived his faith simply and honestly, the naivete of Marius and his final growth of understanding, the inability of Javert to accept even the existence of grace, and all the marvelous, timeless side characters surrounding these central characters A truly brilliant and timeless novel Yes, the author does tend to ramble, but he presents so beautifully the honorable yet ultimately tragic beliefs of the revolutionaries, the transformation of Jean...

    This is not an easy read Thank God I purchased a Kindle to look up A LOT of words Some were in French and were not in my Kindle Some sections required slower,in depth reading, thus it took me a while to finish this Les Mis is such an eloquently worded and captivating story I struggled, as I am sure many have in some areas, and tried to just go slower It is also tense and exciting, so that you tend to want to skip over some of those beautifully explained historical eve This is not an easy read Thank God I purchased a Kindle to look up A LOT of words Some were in French and were not in my Kindle Some secti...

    This book is not what you think if all you ve seen is the musical or one of the movie adaptations The cliche description would be sweeping or epic , but even such hyperbole doesn t come close to describing it The story of Jean Valjean and Cosette is like a coat tree on which Hugo hangs the history of France from Waterloo to 1832, his theories of politics and religion, minutely detailed descriptions of various parts of Paris in the 1820 s and 30 s, the history of its sewer system, a critique This book is not what you think if all you ve seen is the musi...

    What can I write about this book that has not already been written by countless readers before me What possible insight could I have that some academic has not already built up and then deconstructed because that s what academics do, ammiright in a much finer andeloquent manner than I could possibly even attempt The rich characters, the vibrant story telling, the various themes and underlying philosophies they ve all been written up already Some people like to retell the entire stor What c...
