Kylie | 77 comments Anna was kind enough to share this with me and I wanted to make sure the group has access to this. Here are some free(legal) ways to get Les Miserables. If you are like me, you haven't had the money to grab a copy with the holiday's sucking all of your extra cash away! Luckily, we all still have a month to read the book and join in on the conversations! I have copied the email below! Thanks Anna!

LES MISERABLES (classic literature)
by Victor Hugo

Sure, you've seen the movie, but have you read the original book to get all that delicious, behind-the-scenes detail that's so hard to capture on the big screen? Hugo's classic tale is set against the backdrop of political upheaval in 19th-century France and retains its timeless appeal of the struggles of former convict Jean Valjean to emerge from desperate circumstances while being pursued by the duty-obsessed Inspector Javert.

Mary (mw8019) Thank you for sending this message out today. Now I have my free copy of Les Miserables and will start it when I finish Proof of Heaven. I also purchased War and Peace which I have wanted to read since I read Anna K., many years ago when it was an Oprah Book Club Book.

This free one is a revised edition that eliminates some of the minor characters and subplots. Just an FYI. That could well be a plus in such a lengthy novel. :-) I don't read revised or abridged versions so thought you might want to know.
