Though it is a big novel, it is one of the greatest classic works of all times. It portrays both hope, and despair, respect & hatred. Summarizing the story for someone would destroy the enjoyment they too could have in reading through the entire thing. (the older version of the movie is done wonderfully well) Who writes like that anymore?

It was wonderfully written! Every character, whether good, bad, or in between, was carefully described. My favorite characters were Eponine, because she is strong and brave, and Javert, because although he is the villain of the story, he is just doing what he thinks is right throughout the whole story. Although the book is fiction, I enjoyed reading about France in that era. It is a very interesting time full of conflict, intrigue, and heroism. My favorite part of the book was when Jean Valjean came to get Cosette. The entire story shows both human bravery and cowardliness in perfect balance. The ending is sad, but it also shows that both life in books and real life are rarely perfect, a mix of happiness and sadness. This is among my favorite books.

Amazingly intricate and deep, this story follows multiple characters. I've read it three times, but I learn several knew things every time I read it. This book has romance, action, history, and...well, let me abridge or this review will have chapters:This novel is breathtakingly complex, but I love it! Oh, and beware! It is very long!

I really enjoyed the book. It was the type of book you just wanted to keep reading and couldn't put down. It had something for everyone to like. I hope that everyone will read this book at some point in their lives.
