1200 pages (truth - 70 hours audiobook): just finished Les Miserables for the 3rd time!
Wow! What an ending! I love these characters so much 💓
Still my favorite book.
Victor Hugo was such an amazing artist!
Just finishing Go Set a Watchman & this seemed like the perfect follow-up. It's a haunting tale of a young man torn between the grandparents that are raising him, his deadbeat strungout mother and his ex-con father. Add in his mixed ethnicity, deep-south mysticism, white grandparents that reject him b/c he's mixed and the fact that he's raising his toddler sister. Oh, and multiple narrators, 1 of whom is dead.
Man! This was a powerhouse of a book.
