Reviews by Bhagwad

Les MisÚrables

by Victor Hugo

One of the greatest books I have ever read, and one of the few books that have moved me even too deeply for tears.

This book will leave you feeling sad, peaceful, thoughtful, and above all, more sensitive.

It does have some VERY long passages (sometimes spanning a hundred pages or so) on the history of France and architecture, the sewers etc, and this can be intimidating to a lot of people. I honestly think that readers can skip these sections and not lose anything of the flavor of the book.
