Les Miserables is a French historical novel by Victor Hugo, first published in 1862, that is considered one of the greatest novels of the 19th century. In the English-speaking world, the novel is usually referred to by its original French title. However, several alternatives have been used, including The Miserables, The Wretched, The Miserable Ones, The Poor Ones, The Wretched Poor, The Victims and The Dispossessed.

Beginning in 1815 and culminating in the 1832 June Rebellion in Paris, the novel follows the lives and interactions of several characters, particularly the struggles of ex-convict Jean Valjean and his experience of redemption. Les Miserables examining the nature of law and grace, the novel elaborates upon the history of France, the architecture and urban design of Paris, politics, moral philosophy, antimonarchism, justice, religion, and the types and nature of romantic and familial love.

   A great classic!
I love this story! It is a book everyone should read in their lives. The only reason it isn't a five star from me is just because of the difficulty of the read. The writer sometimes goes off onto French history tangents so if that's not your thing, I would recommend looking for an abridged version. Also second sale has always been pretty reliable for me, it it says it is good or acceptable than it should be just fine adding it to your library.
