    One of the biggest book I ve ever read, and I remembered Mick Foley s warning about a big book A big book is like a serious relationship it requires a commitment Not only that, but there s no guarantee that you will enjoy it, or that it will have a happy ending Kind of like going out with a girl, having to spend time every day with her with absolutely no guarantee of nailing her in the end No thanks Haha Well, I took my chances reading this big book I made my commitment, I spent my time everyday with this book about a month and what do I get Happiness and the joy of reading This book really nailed me, I have my happy ending Woo Hooo Thank you very much for the warning Mister Foley This book is amazing, lengthy in descriptions, compelling storyline and has influenced so many people Breaks my heart into pieces but somehow put it back together.You want to be a better person a...

    Les Mis rables can be translated from the French into The Miserable Ones , The Wretched , The Poor Ones , The Wretched Poor or The Victims So, as you will have concluded, this is not a happy book.In fact, it is the very opposite of fluffy happiness It is a story about the lowest and darkest parts of French society in the first half of the nineteenth century Hugo takes the reader on a 1200 page journey around France and into the lives of criminals, prostitutes, those wasting away under the strain of poverty and he provides food for thought on commonly held ideas about the nature of law, justice, love, religion and politics Not only this, but I can say that not one page of this giant bored me At the end of the day you re another day older And that s all you can say for the life of the poor I feel the need to mention the musical of Les Mis rables and I m going to incorporate some lyrics into this review because why not It s one of my favourite musicals The book is, as is often the case, a much deeper and well developed version of the same story, but I still recognised many of my favourite scenes from the stage production I had actually expected the book to be gentle and subdued than the musical because of the time it was written and to avoid controversy especially as Hugo s opinion of the French judicial system during this time was made very clear but this was not the case Les Mis rables is a nasty, gritty, haunting novel that...

    Let s say that I could choose a single book with the guarantee that every man, woman, and child would read it I would not choose my top three favorites, nor would I choose the one whose remnants are permanently inked upon me I would choose this one You argue, the length The time period The cultural barriers It s just another long expounding by some old dead white guy whose type has suffocated literature for centuries Women will be frustrated with poor representation, people who aren t white will be angered by no representation, and everyone will bored to tears Alright, I see that Now, let me explain.Human rights have not been perfected They are as much a work in progress now as they were 150 years ago when this book was first published If you wish to find the book that gives every variation on the theme of humanity its due, it does not exist, and in all likelihood never will With that in mind, it is this book that I choose, as while Victor Hugo may have been limited by the era he grew up in, he did a damn good job in dreaming beyond it He wrote what he knew, but he also wrote what he hoped, and together they form a piece of writing that can mean something to everyone, whatever their life consists of.The book is called The Miserables I have a feeling that it is the blatant despair that this title provokes that has dissuaded publishers from rendering it into English, instead keeping it in that slightly prettier to the ear French form ...

    I m in the minority unfortunately I thought the book was okay I was hoping it would blow my mind and be a favorite like The Count Of Monte Cristo, as I was afraid of that book too, but alas, it was not I might as well put the ole spoilers tag up on here Oh and even though Jean s name will be changed in the book, I m sticking with Jean so I won t get all messed up FANTINE 1 An Upright Man2 The Fall3 In The Year 18174 To Trust Is Sometimes To Surrender 5 The Descent 6 Javert7 The Champmathieu Affair8 Counter Stroke I worry at times when reading classic books because I feel I won t understand a lot of them And some I haven t Come to think of it, I have read books that aren t classic and never understood them and still loved them I m strange, I know I felt the same way when I went into The Count of Monte Cristo I was so worried I wouldn t get it enough to like it and uh, it s one of my favorite books to date Les Mis has given me some trouble during the first of the book I have felt like I m not going to like it too much and then there would be parts that I just loved So we shall see when I finish it awhile from now I rea...

    I chose to read the hefty Victor Hugo classic for my thirtieth birthday let me tell you, the experience was One Biiiig Bitch I mean, why EVEN go to the 200 year old text when the Broadway musical exists THAT work of art exudes all beauty and majesty in one continuous song that unites the characters through time ultimately giving us a true theme, or feeling of genuine victory over adversity The plot, one gorgeous telenovela of a story, replete with jailbreaks, insurrections, betrayals, war, calamities multiplied order restored is, in short, too much Muchness for one reader to possibly occupy himself with.This is the longest novel I have ever read probably Don Quixote, which took me an entire month to read, is the closest second as such, it is difficult a staggering activity indeed to maintain order in its review, much less in the colossus text itself that s just very disordered, odd, beautiful but not always it is a mixture an irritating one at that, less than a boost toward modernism of myriad tones paces, a gargantuan monster from the abysmal depths of time a list of lists, basically a lexicon in Everything French Revolution.What is the purpose of so many compilation of details to make a heap of facts that, quite fr...

    This will be another review as I go First, a thank you to Rachel for recommending the Fahnestock and MacAfee translation, which is wonderful so far Next, a question Why have I been so drawn lately to these 1,500 page 19th century behemoths War and Peace, The Brothers Karamazov, Crime and Punishment, and now this Am I just a glutton for punishment Or just showing off I hope not When I think about it, I think it has to do with the moral scope and depth of the work and the way these books really wear their morality on their sleeves They re complex, yes, but they re not hiding their morality behind some veneer of show, don t tell They re not afraid to plumb the moral depths of the societies they depict, and I think, when I look around at the society I inhabit, that I hunger for of this So here I have it.Hugo certainly takes his time setting up the main action, with a long introductory section on the Bishop Myriel before we get to the main character, Jean Valjean But for some reason it works, so that by the time Valjean arrives on the scene, we have a sense of the place he comes to and the reactions he ll face Even then, Myriel stands apart from the others in his generosity and kindness, such t...

    What makes a favourite book In this case, I will have to say one single character that broke my heart and shaped my idealism and stirred my anger Gavroche Th nardier Si l on demandait la grande et norme ville Qu est ce que c est que cela elle r pondrait C est mon petit One of those street children that see and hear during their childhood than most people ever experience, who carry pain and neglect with them on their daily adventures to survive in a hostile, careless environment, and still manage to find reasons to love and to live, he made me want to work with children when I was myself still only a teenager I also wept with his sister ponine, and with Cosette s mother Fantine, and I followed in Gavroche s tracks through the drama of Parisian 19th century history His fight became my cause.The main characters, Jean Valjean and his adoptive daughter Cosette, left me rather cold by contrast, as they seemed too perfectly good, too beautiful, too physically strong and mentally one dimensional to be shaped from real life, and I am not sure Les Mis rables would have ranged among my most beloved books, had the novel been slimmed down to their specific plot The story line of Javert, whose fanatic s...
