Les Miserables by Victor Hugo-Part 3

Another 300 pages down!  I am now 3/4 of the way done with Les Miserables and I must say that the last 300 pages were the best so far.  I loved that most of this section dealt with the characters and less of the historical events going on around them.  Cosette and Marius really come to the front of the story and there is a ton of excitment when Jean Valjean and Thenardier meet again.  I felt like I spent a lot of time on edge; there is always this fear that Javert is going to catch up with Jean Valjean and it is as though I'm holding my breath as I continue reading. 

I have to say that before I started this section, I wasn't loving the book but now I have changed my mind.  It is such a deep, well-written story with so many characters that all have intertwining stories.  It's confusing at times but still an excellent story.  I can't wait to see how it will all wrap up!

  1. I read this back in 10th grade. And while it did take me a while to get through it I still loved it. Yes, there's a lot in it, but if I enjoyed it as a high school-er I think most people would like it if they stuck with it.
