Nia Saunders Who read the book ? Was it better than the movie ?

Kate (kaitlins16) I really want to read the book. I've only read the first few chapters, and I know it starts in a different place than the movie.

I'm just going to say this. some people may disagree with me that the movie was off from the book. I Think IT Was Spot On! I BAWLED LIKE A BABY THE WHOLE TIME! it was awkward too, we were in the theatre and I was sobbing. Lol

Nia Saunders I heard the director (Tom Hooper) took a lot of little details out. I also read somewhere the Jean Valjean get captured and sent to jail after he takes Fantine to the hospital and later has to escape.

he doesn't get taken to jail but Javier chases him some more. of course Lol

Kate (kaitlins16) I think for making a book as long as Les Mis into a movie, certain things have to be changed in order to make it work.

Nia Saunders In some ways isn't it unrealistic ? Is Javier the only policeman in town ? It certainly seems so.

no. he just has a grudge against Jean valjean so it's kind of his personal goal to get him in prison again
