Gabi | 62 comments You have to give it to Hugo, I've never read and probably will never read again such an enthusiastic ode to sewer tunnels. That was fascinating.

Paris' sewer system is the unsung hero of the last act!

I really liked this book and most of it was unsurprising if you're at all familiar with the story from the musical or movie. However, I found Jean Valjean to be much more complex here.
Also (spoiler about the end of the book) (view spoiler)

penwing | 5 comments [spoiler]To be fair to Marius, Valjean is, kinda, asking him to do it. He misleads him by only giving half the truth.

But yeah, definitely a jerk.[/spoiler]


Maggie the Muskoka Library Mouse (mcurry1990) | 1 comments This was a commitment, but the story was good. I disliked the political parts, but I worked my way through it.
