Being a fan of Les Miserable I read the memoirs of the author and found it very engrossing. Ir explains the events of his life in depth. Well worth the time spent reading it.

This is a good way to get to know who Victor Hugo was as a person. This edition, however, isn't very well annotated, and as a result if you aren't intimately familiar with French history and the more or less obscure French politicians of the time, then you'll have to rely on Wikipedia to keep up with what's going on. Just a warning!
