Format: Paperback
I found Hugo to be at his best with developing great characters, providing insights into human nature and what's going on in people's minds, and telling a story when the plot is moving forward. Having said that, He is really long winded and gives detailed descriptions of things, like buildings, that have very little to do with the story. The preface even tries to excuse him for that saying that what is no longer customary in level of detail used to be the norm. I found myself skimming these long descriptions to pick up the plot again. In doing that I was able to not just finish this very long book but to enjoy it as well.

This is only one part of the Victor Hugo epic, just the part about Cosette. Although the translation is excellent, you only get one minor part of the story.

Format: Paperback
Les Miserables handily proves something that gets all too easily glossed over in a lot of books from the 19th century: Life completely sucked for the average person. Beneath all of the aristocratic intrigue and constant wars, you had an entire strata of society which was being zealously persecuted, jailed, thrown into debt, and essentially ruined for life with little to no recourse that didn't involve becoming an actual criminal. The profound sense of guilt that Jean Valjean carries through out his entire life is brought on by stealing a loaf of bread. A loaf of bread. Imaging feeling bad about doing that. I mean REALLY feeling bad. Now imagine that on top of feeling really bad there was an officious pig of an inspector who essentially dedicated his professional career to finding you and throwing you back in prison for transgressing a law that no amount of prison time, genuine regret, sterling moral rectitude, or personal philanthropy on your part could ever placate. Les miserables, oddly, is the perfect response to ideas like reaganomics and thatcherism. Not only IS there such a thing as society, but that thing can be pathologically, cosmically, almost gleefully, sick. Especially once you get branded as one of its untouchables. This book is about one man having to more or less destroy himself in order to finally, after 1400 pages, get squared with his society. Jean Valjean made it. But he had to constantly hide, flee, change his identity, and forgo nearly every shred of personal happiness and peace of mind to do so. Hugo's evocation of this world and its unfairness is massive and brilliant (and yeah, a bit long winded, but so what?) For my money, this beats out War and Peace as the mega-novel of the 19th century
