Les Misérables Book Summary


Jean Valjean spent nineteen years in prison — five for stealing bread, fourteen for trying to escape. Valjean tries to make a new life for himself, but he cannot escape the stigma of his past, nor the oppressive watch of the cold-hearted Inspector Javert.
Fantine is a working class woman barely scraping together enough for herself and her young daughter Cosette. Both mother and daughter are exploited by the greedy innkeeper Thénardiers, who keeps demanding more and more money. Fantine’s health begins to deteriorate, and in her desperation she begins to consider prostitution. 
These are but two of the unfortunate souls from Victor Hugo’s massive novel about rebellion, redemption, authority, romance, and justice. Les Misérables is a rich, complex, profound, and heart-breaking work of historical fiction, and one of the greatest novels of all time. 
This includes all five volumes, as well as illustrations by Émile Bayard. Also, many of the more poetic passages are preserved in the original French, side-by-side with an English translation. (Can't do that on Kindle!)

    This is the second time I've read the unabridged, and the translation in this ebook is just strange. I can't get past how they use "ejaculated" every five minutes during an argument for someone shouting. For being free it's better than lugging around a 1400 page book, but try a different translation.
  • Les misèrables is amazing

    This book is so much more than a wonderful story. It has French history; philosophical theories from Victor Hugo; praise for Napoleon and the French Republic. It is by far the best book I have ever read!

    After spending over ten months with Valjean and company in the undertaking of reading this great work, I can only say it was entirely worth it. It is truly a masterpiece, and one that must be experienced. It is free, so there is no reason not to download it. The translation was refreshingly literary.
  • Awesome.
