About the Author

The best-known of the French Romantic writers, Victor Hugo was a poet, novelist, dramatist, and political critic. Hugo was an avid supporter of French republicanism and advocate for social and political equality, themes that reflect most strongly in his works Les Mis?rables, Notre-Dame de Paris (The Hunchback of Notre-Dame), and Le Dernier jour d'un condamn? (The Last Day of a Condemned Man). Hugo's literary works were successful from the outset, earning him a pension from Louis XVIII and membership in the prestigious Acad?mie fran?aise, and influencing the work of literary figures such as Albert Camus, Charles Dickens, and Fyodor Dostoevsky. Elevated to the peerage by King Louis-Philippe, Hugo played an active role in French politics through the 1848 Revolution and into the Second and Third Republics. Hugo died in 1885, revered not only for his influence on French literature, but also for his role in shaping French democracy. He is buried in the Panth?on alongside Alexandre Dumas and ?mile Zola.

This is a good product for the money, but.... my reason for buying this was that I am going to attempt to read Les Miserables in the original French and was going to utilize this as a guide in case I "got lost" I would be able to follow. Well, these notes are based on the Abridged version of the novel, so it might defeat the purpose. Had this fact been mentioned in the description, I would have probably purchased the more expensive Cliff's Notes (which I just might have to end up buying anyway).So this is the reason I am rating this 3 stars. Not because it is not a good product, but because it was not described properly therefore I ended up buying something that might not assist me at all.

This book, MaxNotes for Les Miserables is a great alternative to the cliffs notes. The cliffs notes are too much about the symbolism and what charachters think, whereas this book gives you more information about the plot. MaxNotes as a series are pretty good, and this book is no exception. I have read the actual book, and both the MaxNotes and the cliffs notes and this book stays truer to the book than cliff's. I definately reccomend this book if this book is required reading for you or you just don't understand some of the concepts that are portrayed in Victor Hugo's novel Les Miserables.

These are basic notes for the overview of the 1400 page behometh of a book. It's a good synopsis of the storyline, which is what I wanted to see the movie before I start the book. The Cliff notes gives too much of what is supposed underlying of meaning, whereas these gave just a good basic overview. Perfect for what I wanted.

This book is a great replacement for reading the 500+ page book les miserables. I think that this is better than the cliff's notes because it gives more charachter details and gives one a better understanding of the book.
