I understood the entire story much better because I listened to the audiobook - therefore the play was even more enjoyable.
When the priest gave him the candlesticks and the immediate events that followed.
His talent adds such emotion to the story. I doubt that anyone could have done either.
Yes, because I love the story and so do they, but I will definitely know where to skip over in the future
The very end. It makes my heart ache.
This story takes me on a roller coaster of emotions. It's horrible and wonderful all at the same time. My children were also affected, though not nearly as much.
I was hoping this edition would be suitable for my 11-13 year olds, but there are parts that I definitely had to skip over- specifically Fantine's downfall. That was a little bit disappointing, but I still would have purchased it and skipped over it as I have done.
"A testament to the power of the human spirit"
This is a powerful and moving book, beautifully narrated. I would say this has to be the most inspiring novel of all time. Jean Val Jean's heroism and generosity are a lesson to us all. 'To die is nothing;but it is terrible not to live'
