How come Les Miserables isn't on here???? Hehehe


message 2: by Susanna - Censored by GoodReads (last edited May 27, 2011 02:46PM) (new)

Susanna - Censored by GoodReads You could add it.

ETA: Isn't Les Miserables set in the early 1800s? I think it starts in about 1815.


message 3: by Julia (last edited May 28, 2011 07:22AM) (new)

Julia Boechat Machado The story of Les Misérables starts in 1815, Susanna is right.


message 4: by Julia (last edited Nov 16, 2011 03:04PM) (new)

Julia Boechat Machado I'm going to remove Les Misérables, since it is set from 1815 to June Rebellion, aka The Paris Uprising of 1832, not during the French Revolution.


message 5: by Elisabeth (new)

Elisabeth I added Elizabeth Gaskell's My Lady Ludlow because, even though it is a mainly English story, there is a story-within-the-story about the French Revolution that takes up a good part of the book (almost a third, I'd say).

Les Miserables is not about the French Revolution; it's about the June Rebellion of 1832.


message 7: by Cam (new)

Cam Is the June Rebellion not French then? I cam here looking for the 1848

the june rebellion is French, but its not French revelution


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads France has had so many revolutions, and failed revolutions, you have to be very specific.

i know!


message 11: by Paul (new)

Paul Bowes Checked for duplicates: 1 book removed.


message 12: by Paul (new)

Paul Bowes Removed #22, 'Les Misérables' - set in 1815-32, not at the time of the French Revolution (1789-99).


message 13: by Paul (new)

Paul Bowes Added dates to the list description (1789-1799) to avoid confusion with later, lesser revolutionary events in France.
