One of the best books I've ever read! I found myself wondering what was going on with Jean Valjean when I wasn't reading it! I fell in love the Jean and HATED Inspector Javert; and was afraid of the con mad Thenardier. The writing was exquisite and expressive. ( )

Great book, but man it was long. ( )

Letto a un'età in cui la parola "capolavoro" non faceva parte del mio vocabolario. Ma il "bellissimo" che aNobii mi offre si avvicina solamente in parte e per difetto, al giudizio che ne ebbi anche allora. ( )

Solange kraft der Gesetze und Sitten eine soziale Verdammnis existiert, die auf künstlichem Weg, inmitten einer hoch entwickelten Zivilisation, Höllen schafft
Dedication
First words
In the Year 1815 Monseigneur Charles-François-Bienvenu Myriel was Bishop of Digne.
So long as there shall exist, by virtue of law and custom, decrees of damnation pronounced by society, artificially creating hells amid the civilization of the earth, and adding the element of human fate to divine destiny; so long as the three great problems of the century - the degradation of man through pauperism, the corruption of woman through hunger, the crippling of children through lack of light - are unsolved; so long as social asphyxia is possible in any part of the world - in other words, and with a still wider significance, so long as ignorance and poverty exist on earth, books of the nature of Les Miserables cannot fail to be of use.
