    Les Misérables emphasizes the three major predicaments of the 19th century, each symbolized by a major character: Jean Valjean represents the degradation of man in the proletariat, Fantine represents the subjection of women through hunger, and Cosette represents the atrophy of the child by darkness.

    Amazon Customer says: "TOO Abridged, Read Only if You Won't Read More"
    "Better than the movie"
    Overall

    Oh! Yes! Hugo does us all a service in preserving for us a grand look at the social atmosphere of 19th century France. Also, he captures the essence of Christianity in telling of the redemption, reclamation and reformation of Jean Valjean because a Priest saw Jean Valjean as he really was, not as society had molded him. Because he was regarded by the Priest as one worthy of Grace and trust, Jean Valjean underwent an amazing transformation of character, becoming a man beloved by all due to his philanthropological endeavors, undertaken, in part, to amend for past wrongs. Jean Valjean became for others what the Priest had been for Jean Valjean, a type of a Savior through his charity and selfless acts of love and kindness. An amazing book that I will want to read, over and again!
