    Gabi... is... obsessed... with... Javert... Aaaaak! I just played Cosette in the musical, and I decided to read the non abridged book. Everyone told me not to, but I didn't listen and boy, am I glad! I am in 7th grade and Les Miserables is the best book I have ever read. Jean Valjean is such a deep person to learn from and so are all of Victor Hugo's other characters. This book truly shows people the power of all kinds of love, and that what's "right" is not always "right" and "wrong" is not alway Gabi... is... obsessed... with... Javert... Aaaaak!

This book truly shows people the power of all kinds of love, and that what's "right" is not always "right" and "wrong" is not always "wrong" if that makes any sense. Besides, the writing is beautiful and so fluent, that even if you don't understand the meaning, it would be an epic read. With just enough action, diougle, and whatever else you may be intrigued by, this book will be one of the most memorable ones you will ever read. I'd write more, but you simply cannot totally sum up Les Miserables in a single small review. Victor Hugo's book will cernainly stay a well respected clasic for at least another few centuries. There is no book like this.

    Wow! What a such amazing book! I am sad to say that I only read the abridged version of Les Miserable. The full novel (over 1000 pages!!) was waaaayyyy too long for me, and Hugo went into such depth while explaining everything that it bored me. But the abridged version was fantastic! I saw the musical, and loved it even more. I have the piano book and I play out of it often. My favorite character is Javert, because he is determind, and he is just all out amazing. Even though he is the bad guys. Wow! What a such amazing book! I am sad to say that I only read the abridged version of Les Miserable.

    Has a lot of great songs from the show. Great for the nerd who really wishes she could sing "I Dreamed a Dream" and "On My Own." Super useful for home-alone showstopper belting.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I absolutely love Les Miserables the musical, even if it doesn't have quite the raw emotional impact the novel has. However, the music is undeniably lovely and the lyrics are, on occasion, quite clever. I dislike how some of the characters have been toned down, particularly Eponine and Javert. But I had issues with everyone. See the list below. Valjean - The musical didn't quite give us the fully-fleshed out complex character we came to know and love from the book Fantine - I liked her back story I absolutely love Les Miserables the musical, even if it doesn't have quite the raw emotional impact the novel has. However, the music is undeniably lovely and the lyrics are, on occasion, quite clever. I dislike how some of the characters have been toned down, particularly Eponine and Javert. But I had issues with everyone. See the list below. Valjean - The musical didn't quite give us the fully-fleshed out complex character we came to know and love from the book Fantine - I liked her back story with Felix, and I wish the musical had included that Cosette - We just see her as a beautiful damsel in distress, rather than the brave and intelligent girl she was in the book Javert - His whole character was toned down. He wasn't the tragic anti-hero, the cynical atheist inspector, torn apart by his misguided sense of right and wrong. Instead, his devotion towards bringing Valjean to justice was credited towards his religious beliefs, which are supposed to be non-existent. Marius - He's the gorgeous romantic hero, rather than the unlikeable and naive man from the book. I also have an enduring hatred of the line, "Hey Eponine, what's up today?" Please, people, this is 18th century France. Eponine - Where did the ugly, insane gamine go? She is not supposed to be a pretty girl with a smudge of dirt on her face and arms. And no, Cosette did not steal Marius from Eponine. Marius never loved her and never gave her a thought. Enjolras - His character I didn't have as much as a problem with. He isn't quite as freakishly passionate in the musical, and his hatred of Grantaire and his friendship with Combeferre was eliminated. But, still, he wasn't completely lost in translation Despite these changes, Les Miserables the musical is still awe-inspiring and tear-inducing. Properly played by the right actors, it is a force to be reckoned with. The Dream Cast Valjean - John Owen Jones Javert - Earl Carpenter Fantine - Ruthie Henshall Cosette - Camilla Kerslake Marius - Jon Robyns Eponine - Nancy Sullivan Enjolras - David Thaxton Dear me, I intended this to be a good two line review...and now I've written a page long opinion piece on Les Miserables, complete with my dream cast. Really, the bottom line is - Les Miserables the musical is great, the music is lovely and I'd recommend it to anyone.

    This book is more than just a read - it is a journey through the lives of many complicated characters as well as a journey for the reader himself.

    Being a singer and someone who loves musicals, of course I love this book. I bought a copy in England after I watched the Queens theater production of the show.

    Slow moving at first, but by page 85 it's a masterpiece. Worth the nearly 1500 pages. Slow moving at first, but by page 85 it's a masterpiece. Worth the nearly 1500 pages.

    Some books are as much education as entertaining. Les Miserables is one of those books. There are stretches where I learned far more than I ever planned to know about French history and politics, French sewer systems even! But Victor Hugo's passion for France makes even the mundane memorable. The story takes the reader through several journeys, historical and psychological. As the characters struggle with the world, so they grapple with who they are as human beings in their natural setting. An a Some books are as much education as entertaining.

The quote, "It is nothing to die; it is horrible not to live." sums it up beautifully.

    I prefer this collection to the original because this is more accessible to high school, youth, or middle aged adult attempting a score that is nearly operatic. The keys used in this collection accommodate slightly lower registers, e.g. Fantine's soprano "I Dream a Dream" is transcribed here so that it can be sung by a mezzo-soprano in this collection.

    Though a hefty read, Les Mis is worth it. I came into this novel as a fan of the musical, but the novel brings so much more to the table. Victor Hugo crafts this epic with historical context, political commentary, and timeless hope that transcends the grim reality of the French people. This novel is inspiring, and its relevance will give readers perspective on current political climate.

    Les Miserables has to be one of the very best reads in its class. Hugo composed compelling prose which set the mind to thinking and the heart to feeling. Indeed, at times the eyes to weeping. The sheer depth of the characters and the themes reverberate in a seemingly endless echo of emotion and truth. There is a character for everyone to relate to, and really all the characters are relatable. That is one of the greatest strengths of the book.

The sheer depth of the characters and the themes reverberate in a seemingly endless echo of emotion and truth. There is a character for everyone to relate to, and really all the characters are relatable. That is one of the greatest strengths of the book. One cares for almost every character, or at least despises them so much as to pay close attention. Personally, I related more to Jean Valjean and Marius, inasmuch as the conflict with past (Jean) and the search for purpose and truth (Marius). To sum up the characters in those words entirely would be a terrible misunderstanding, they have much more depth than those traits alone. There are many more that could be stated. // Hugo's writing style is also curious. I mean that in a good way. He is wordy, but I think that adds to the effect that is presented in the book overall. The effect is oppression. Not only of the political man, or the emotional man, but of a man's very soul. Certain characters are associated with various moods and atmospheres which are appear in the book, all emerging from a thick, fog-like haze of oppression, like a room full of dense smoke. Each carry a little of that smoke in their lungs as the speak and their characters are developed. The heroes are those that can find fresh air, the villains are those who embrace the fog, fearful and bent. Indeed all men are bent to an extent, Jean was just a Bishop away from becoming the likes of Thenadier. Indeed the Bishop was that open window through which the fresh air of Freedom was allowed in. It is freedom Marius seeks, freedom that Jean Valjean seeks, freedom which many seek in their strange ways, twisted and maligned by the cruel world around them. It is through these many ways which each character travels, it is in these characters that Hugo illustrates each path. While the oppression of the lower classes is something a Marxist would readily pick up on, however Hugo adds a twist, a rightfully honest twist, that would make the Marxist supposition a false one. Even the bourgeois are oppressed. Not by the lower, but by the monster of a society they themselves created. They are oppressed by their own depravity of soul. Take Marius' Grandfather for a prime example. He is old and set in his ways, yet he "worships" Marius. Why is that? Marius represents the freedom, the grand quest of freedom, that which has all but abandoned the grandfather. All he has is his material possessions and his pride. Fortunately, through Marius' the grandfather overcomes the parasite of the socialite inside and learns to live outside of his ego and habit. In a sense he becomes a more complete man. The same, in a different sense for Valjean. Jean goes through his life with many aliases, all covering up his identity. There is more depth to this than simply evading Javert. Jean is running away. He is fleeing from himself. He is fleeing from the man which stole the 40 sous from a child. Running from the thief, the slave, the wretch of a man he once was. He becomes these men such as Madeline in order to become a new man, the good man which Bienvenu had wish him to become. It is at the end, in the encounter with Marius, that Jean finally admits his past, faces it, and learns that the fear of it was a dark illusion stimulated by Javert and the threat of injustice. It is in the love given by Cosette and Marius that Jean learns to love himself as well, he is a new man, not nominally but in the soul. He has transcended his past and has reached the present with the hope of the future by his deathbed. His story completed he dies a whole man. He lost himself and found it in the end. Not by his will, but through the love of a young girl and the illuminating truth of a young man.

    This musical masterpiece was adapted from Victor Hugo's novel, Les Miserables. The music delicately and gracefully retells the tale of an ex-convict Jean ValJean, and his extraordinary journey to redemption and peace. Not one note is missed, as every word goes hand in hand in creating the world, life, and adventures of Jean ValJean. The story begins in 1815, France, although the book spans over a very long time.

The music delicately and gracefully retells the tale of an ex-convict Jean ValJean, and his extraordinary journey to redemption and peace. Not one note is missed, as every word goes hand in hand in creating the world, life, and adventures of Jean ValJean. The story begins in 1815, France, although the book spans over a very long time. The protagonist, Jean ValJean, in pursued by Javert, an inspector, and police official. He is following ValJean in hopes to recapture him after he skips his parole and begins a new life. ValJean must take care of a young girl, Cosette in order to make right what happened to her mother, Fantine. ValJean's Factory Forman kicked Fantine out after she was seen as trouble in the factory by the other workers and did not do what the Forman always asked of her to do. Cosette was raised by the Thenardiers, a couple who owned an inn, that profited mainly from the items stolen from their customers. ValJean takes Cosette from them and then raises her for a long time, until she is nearly an adult. The spark of the French Revolution then disrupts ValJeans plans because the boy that Cosette loves is part of the Friends of the A-B-C, or the main group of the resistance. He then has to decide if he should risk his life to save the boy his daughter loves, or try to escape the law. I strongly suggest that you look into the story of Les Miserables, or attend the production at the Newton Community Theatre this March. I really enjoy this musical because like most music, it can speak to you. every character is like a part of your own personality that you can identify with! The story is so powerful to most people because we can all remember a time when we had no hope, there was no light, but we rose up and shouted "Vive la France!" or... found some kind of hope, when hope was gone, and had strength to journey on. 5 out of 5.

    I tried to read this book several times over several years, and (quite honestly) could never get past the bishop. Frankly, I was bored stiff. Then I tried it again this year - and was astounded. I could not put this book down. Victor Hugo is a master with words. I found myself marking page after page - wanting to memorize whole paragraphs by heart, so I can call them up at a moment's notice. The characters - they breathe. The lessons and morals - they think and live and question.

I was fascinated with the French History section (it led to many an hour on wikipedia ...), but the rants on French language and the sewers lost me. But despite his verbosity, Hugo won me over. I plan to read this book over and over - and recommend it to any and all who have a heart.

    From everything I'd head about the play, I was expecting more out of this book than I did. The author seemed to love to just talk and thought his readers wouldn't catch on-- or needed to hear the same story told at least two times. I understand getting a character's different perspective, but he didn't have to spend a whole other chapter explaining the exact same thing again. And Jean Valjean never looks/acts like himself-- did the author think we, as the readers, wouldn't figure out when it was From everything I'd head about the play, I was expecting more out of this book than I did.

I'm going to watch the musical, so hopefully it's better than the book- it was painful to get through some parts of the book! But it was an interesting story, don't get me wrong. But it took way to long to tell it.

    I rate the Les Miserables: Sheet Music five stars. I rate it this because the music is amazing, and it includes a storyboard. The storyboard in the beginning of the book is very helpful if you are not familiar with the story of Les Miserables. Also, the storyboard tells you the time period, and when the songs are in relative to the story. Pictures are also included of the characters, and scenery so you can visualize the entire story. The music is beautiful, and the lyrics fit the story perfectly I rate the Les Miserables: Sheet Music five stars. I rate it this because the music is amazing, and it includes a storyboard.

    Easy to see why it is considered the "great French novel." The characters are complex, it is well written and it draws you into the psyche of its most famous character, Jean Valjean, who is seeking redemption and along the way becomes an 'angel' to others.

    This wonderful music, as well as being very true in it's representation of France during this time period.Which was during the early french revolution, pre-Bastille day. However, the music does not mean as much if you have not seen the musical for yourself.

    Great collection of hits from the show. I wouldn't buy it for performance since it's not voice-part-specific and there are many group songs/duets, but it's great if you just like to play for fun or for family. Has piano and vocal parts, and I believe also has guitar chords. Great collection of hits from the show.
