Les mis?rables
Les mis?rables | Victor Hugo
140 posts | 45 read | 2 reading | 18 to read
This expansive French tale of injustice and social unrest is widely considered to be writer Victor Hugo's masterpiece. While the 1862 novel features a large array of characters, it focuses primarily on the noble Jean Valjean, a man unfairly imprisoned for a minor crime of compassion. After serving a long sentence, Valjean struggles to find his place in a seemingly unforgiving society. As his fortunes change, France itself undergoes a major transformation. Hugo's sweepingly emotive story has been adapted many times, to considerable fanfare.

@JenReadsAlot I saw we‘re both tackling Les Miserables for #ChunksterChallenge2022 I‘m wondering what you‘re plan is. I‘m going to be reading this Canterbury Classics copy which is a Hapgood transition. I was thinking I‘d aim to get through AT LEAST 1 book a week (my copy is broken into 47) and then I‘d have the option of spreading it through the whole year, or picking up the pace.

BookDadGirlDad I lived Le Miserable. Took me nearly 1 month to read. So good 11mo
JenReadsAlot Hey- mine is a Kindle version and does not even have page numbers! I'm at 5% starting book 2. 11mo
KristiAhlers @BookDadGirlDad it‘s one of my favorite classics. I managed to read it in its native French when I lived in Belgium. So very good ❤️💙🇫🇷 7mo

Pickpick

For most of this book I felt it would be a so-so.
I enjoyed the bits with characters in, and some of the descriptive chapters. But sometimes Hugo went overboard with explaining some bits without any characters to help move the story along. There were a couple of time/story errors that threw me a little too. And I didn‘t feel like I was overly attached to any characters. However this changed towards the end, pushing it to a pick :)

#TBRCrew

Cortg Yeah, I think if it were more like 600-700 pages it could‘ve been fantastic! I love the storyline but some of the details (Waterloo & the Paris sewed system for example,) ugh! 2y
ElizaMarie I agree. Like there was a couple of chapters/books of it that was so blah! But overall I felt like this was a pick too! Now you need to rewatch the musical! 2y

Book 6: The sleepless night

This book was too happy. Does that make sense? Like the calm before the storm. I have a horrible feeling someone may die or be terribly maimed... surely Hugo hasn‘t written a happy ending?
Also, doesn‘t M.Gillenormand love the sound of his own voice? Haha

Book 2: The intestine of the leviathan

I found this book on the history of Parisian sewers surprisingly interesting. It reminded me a little of sections of Ghost Map (which is about John Snow and cholera in London) involving the sewage system.

Volume 5, Book one: The war between four walls

This one was long! Lots of characters coming together, lots leaving us. I am always surprised by the effect religion had on Jean Valjean. He is truly a good man as evidenced in this book.

I am behind on my buddy read now, but this is the month I will finish 😋

Book 10: The 5th of June, 1832

As I have said before, I find the chapters that are not character related a bit of a slog, and this book was no exception!

Book 8: Enchantments and desolations

Family can be difficult, especially when they don‘t say what they actually feel. Marius is very much the dreamer. I feel he needs a bit more direction in life, and Cosette is not helping that side of him!

Bonus pic of my reading buddy. He likes to lie on me in a morning, which means ebooks, so I can read over his shoulder on my phone! 🐶

OMG! I am so so glad that we did this as a buddy read! This has been on my TBR for a along time.. I had always been interested in it and thought I would enjoy it... But I am so so glad that I read it because.. well it was amazing!!! I need to get my hands on the movie (I have never seen it! So I know I am in for a huge treat -- husband had requested I focused on this one because he wanted to re-watch it with me)

Chrissyreadit One of my favorite books of all time! I saw it on Broadway when I was 16 and still listen regularly to the music. 2y
ElizaMarie @Chrissyreadit I have never head any of the music! And I keep hearing everyone talk about how great the musical is. And who great the movie was and everything! I am excited to find it streaming somewhere so my husband and I can do a “virtual“ date with this one! 2y

ElizaMarie @mom2bugnbee ooo good to know! I am like polar opposites with my family. I was a veracious reader as a child and loved dance/theatre but they were never really into it. So I lack a lot of those experiences as a kid (other than being in ballet and performing ballet type stories -- NutCracker) I hope when the world opens up I can see it on Broadway. 2y

So, yes fatherhood is not a central theme really but... Jean Val Jean became an amazing father to Cosette. So that's why I am going to use that for this prompt.

ElizaMarie @mom2bugnbee Thank you. I feel like it fit but... I don know if ti would be the “central“ them but more like “one of the“ central themes. Anyway.

Book 5: The end of which does not resemble the beginning

When we first met Marius I quite liked him, but love (or more accurately I think, obsession) does not look well on him. I have a feeling that things will go badly for him and Cosette...

I am slowly working on my tbrs, I finished a re-read so can start on the new ones, and I am still on track with the Les Mis buddy read :)

ElizaMarie I feel a little behind with the Les Mis (just starting this month's part of the book today) But I will probably catch up before next month's start. So I am not too worried about it.

Your reading haven sounds super lovely. I love warm and cozy and something hot to drink!
