Customer Reviews

To call it expositional stalling, I think, would be too forgiving.
Daniel Estes
And also, and most importantly, the book is quite thick - it is genuinely unabridged.
Elrond
The first time I read Les Miserables I cried for weeks after finishing the book.

I got this copy because I wanted a copy of the Hapgood translation in print that was unabridged, and in print. Being unable to find a hardcover with those criteria, I settled for this one.

What a pleasant surprise.

What I actually thought was a paperback was really a "flexiback." I am starting to see more large books being printed in this medium, and it is really neat. It is the best of both worlds really. This cover actually feels like faux leather - surely not cardboard - and it has a matte feel to it that gives a nice amount of grip for holding this big book. The words on the front and the back are actually embossed into the covers, which makes it look quite nice. The pages are of a perfect thickness for the size of this book. They are not too thin, but they are not thick. And also, and most importantly, the book is quite thick - it is genuinely unabridged.

This is one of my favorite books on my shelf. I am really glad I bought it, and at ~$10, it's a magnificent value. I definitely recommend it.

I never thought on reading Les Miserables. I decided to do so quite some months ago. I'm glad I did. Most of Victor Hugo's reflections are still important and relevant for our days. Before watching the movie or going to the musical, do yourself a favor and read this one out. It is long but it is worth it.

My only problem with this book was with the large amount of text in French, without footnotes or any other way, outside of sitting with a French/English dictionary to understand the meaning. It would have been nice if they had linked the French words and phrases, which are plentiful, with a built in dictionary just as they did for the English words. I had the same problem with War and Peace, by Tolstoy. The aristocracy in Russia used French most of the time and it was very difficult to get the gist of what was being said. Otherwise, I wish I had read this years ago. Victor Hugo's great novel, some call it the greatest novel of all time, would easily be a good choice if one were stranded on a desert island and could only take one book... for me, this would be it!!!

Noticing that this book was "Supposedly" unabridged, I purchased it, only to find that the translation was a mess. There are notable modifications in the translation, the style has been notably changed in a number of places, and the book is too short to be unabridged. A better edition is The Works of Victor Hugo (with active table of contents), translated by Charles Wilbour. It offers a far better edition of Les Miserables, in addition to a number of other famous works by Hugo, for only 1 dollar more.

at 0.99 this edition was the cheapest one i could find but the real bummer was that it lacked a table of contents which made navigating the unwieldy 1000 plus pages a bit tough

The font is a little small to me. 19-20 letters/inch is too much. I hope that one volume does not include more than 400-500 pages. I

Beautiful covering nicely bound. I am enjoying the reading and translation. My only complaint is the print size - too small.
