Victor Hugo's tale of injustice, heroism and love follows the fortunes of Jean Valjean, an escaped convict determined to put his criminal past behind him. But his attempts to become a respected member of the community are constantly put under threat: by his own conscience, when, owing to a case of mistaken identity, another man is arrested in his place; and by the relentless investigations of the dogged policeman Javert. It is not simply for himself that Valjean must stay free, however, for he has sworn to protect the baby daughter of Fantine, driven to prostitution by poverty. A compelling and compassionate view of the victims of early nineteenth-century French society, "Les Miserables" is a novel on an epic scale.

 All of life is here.....

If you want a moving story, set against a sweeping backdrop of revolution and self-realization, then look no further. Often dense the prose can be demanding, but the depth of emotion, and insight into the human condition is rarely bettered than this panoramic work. To read it is to go on an emotional journey that will leave the reader drained, but probably changed for the better!

 A true Masterpiece...

An utterly amazing story. Firstly, don't get put off by the fact that its a 19th century classic, and moreover the length. Granted, some of the very long passages about the politics of France at the time can be quite hard to get through, but get through it, as you will be so pleased you did.
It is probably my favourite book I have read to date: the story is incredibly deep and moving. So much of life's wonders and depairs is covered here. What I found particularly brilliant was both the portrayals of those living in complete poverty and destitution, and also the kindness of the Bishop of Digne in the beginning 80 or so pages: such amazing writing could not help you but become emotional.
I felt bereft when I finished this, and am trawling other classics to see if anything compares.
