This abridged version is riddled with typos which makes it extremely hard to read. For example, Page 7: Pbudence; Pg 9, The Heroism op Passive Obedience; Pg 19, Petit Gebvai8; Pg 22: To Entkust. These I saw just scanning through quickly. This is a very poor product!
In case the link doesn't work for some reason, the front cover has Les Miserables, Victor Hugo on a tan background. The inside title page has Les Miserables, Victor Hugo and Mead Schaeffer, General Books, [...] 391 pages.
Providing any kind of comprehensive summary for this novel is far too ambitious for our tastes. Fortunately, all any prospective reader needs to know is that there's a thief, a police inspector, an ill-treated girl, a lawyer, and all kinds of various miscreants. Against a backdrop of war and revolution the fates of said characters are intertwined to create all kinds of high drama, treachery, and feats of strength.
Les Miserables is a beautifully written, epic masterpiece that far exceeded our expectations. Admittedly, we had been dreading this read for several months so the bar was set pretty low. And at 500,000 plus words, we just wanted to survive until the end... Not only did we survive, but we were left with a new appreciation for the history of France and all kinds of weighty social questions to ponder. Les Miserables is a book of despair and second chances. Most importantly, the novel is about the many choices that ultimately define a person's life.
In our opinion the characters were the strongest aspect of the book. There was a good bit about the battle of Waterloo that critics have swooned over, but those parts were overshadowed by the presence of Jean Valjean and Inspector Javert. Both of these characters had the ability to add instant "hold-on-because-something-big-is-about-to-happen" to the plot. Jean Valjean was fascinating and his character provided so much hope for the human spirit.Read more ›
Read by Ben Cross, widely known from his role in the movie Chariots of Fire. What a classic book, what a great listening experience.
Now, I've wanted to read this so badly but I never got the chance to purchase or find at the library until last christmas when my friend Em got it for me. Best christmas ever!
I almost immediately started Les Mis and loved it so much! I had a hard time not the cry on the end there. That's how much it means to me. It's a beautiful story that everyone should at least read once in their life! Go on! Go read it, now! :D

I tried to read this but I have a very busy household and just could not keep up. I'm sure it is not the book, it is me.Published 23 months ago by Amazon Customer
This is the third or fourth time I have read the book. Always discover something I missed before. It can be a distracting read where Mr. Hugo rambles on at times. Read morePublished on March 22, 2013 by GrammieB
I read the whole thing and not once did anyone hold an entire conversation in song. What gives Victor?
