Its George Guidall!... there is no one better, some as good, but no one better.
I did both
This book is over 40 hours long and it seemed like it was over in the blink of an eye. I love the musical and wanted to listen to the book before the movie version hit the screens. I am soooo glad I did. The background information you get on these characters is amazing. To know why the Bishop Myriel is the way he is, to get the background of Fantine how she came to have Cosette and how the Thénardiers are (the are quite despicable in the book, not the comic relief they are in the play) where they are in life and to feel Valjean's anguish and inner turmoil is utterly amazing. Also when Hugo goes on about Paris or the Battle of Waterloo, if you are a history fan, get a map and a lot of what is read will come alive. I just loved the book... so did my kids, my 12 year old daughter is now reading it and my 14 year old son just finished it.
