Les Miserables

Posted in A Few Books by livelife7 on April 27, 2010

Les Miserables is an amazing book about a former criminal (Jean Valjean) who changes his ways and struggles to remain good. It was originaly written in France by Victor Hugo and published in 1862. The original version is over 1,000 pages long. However, it has been translated cut down into shorter vesions. I have enjoyed reading the abriged version and look forward to reading the full version one day.

Although this book was written so long ago, it still applies to our world today and addresses many major problems. One of the reasons I enjoyed this book was because of it’s depth. Everything that happends in this book has a meaning behind it. If you are to fully appreciate a book such as this, you must read with care.   As I said, there is a lot of meaning in this book.  Let me know what you think of it.
