    One of the great classics of world literature and the inspiration for the most beloved stage musical of all time, Les Misérables is legendary author Victor Hugo’s masterpiece. This extraordinary English version by renowned translator Julie Rose captures all the majesty and brilliance of Hugo’s work. Here is the timeless story of the quintessential hunted man—Jean Valjean—and the injustices, violence, and social inequalities that torment him.

    What did you like best about Les Misérables: Translated by Julie Rose? What did you like least?

    The Narrator was Phenominal but the unabridged version has way too much dead space that takes away from the story - long, drawn out sections that don't take the reader anywhere. I suspect the abridged version would eliminate a lot of that. Great Story.


    What about George Guidall’s performance did you like?

    EXCELLENT!! His ability to change voice was great - you always knew who's part he was speaking throughout the entire book...even the progression of the aging characters.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    It is, and yes, can't wait. Wanted to finish the book first and finally did last night.

    In a scrap heap within an abandoned factory, the greatest invention in history lies dormant and unused. By what fatal error of judgment has its value gone unrecognized, its brilliant inventor punished rather than rewarded for his efforts? In defense of those greatest of human qualities that have made civilization possible, one man sets out to show what would happen to the world if all the heroes of innovation and industry went on strike.

    Every School age child should read this book prior to entering the real world. What a wonderful message to take with you as you explore out on your own. I loved the narrator - he fit every part.
