Reviews by Mark L

Les MisÚrables

by Victor Hugo

This is one of the great literary classics of all time. It's unfortunate that so many are intimidated by the size of this book, especially in paperback. But do yourself a favor and read this - the unabridged version that is!

Hugo is a master storyteller. The tale drifts from mystery, suspense, murder, intrigue, drama, philosophy, history, politics and the divisions of the human heart.

Read the book before seeing the musical. In a way it's unfortunate the musical became such a big hit because I think it has kept people away from the book. It is vastly superior, of course.

This book is probably among my top five favorite tales of all time.
