Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Holds up to the legacy."

    Narration was wonderful. The story can literally digress for hours so come in to it with patience and curiosity.

    "Amazing"

    The narrator was superb. The text fascinating. But above all else, the translator was beyond words.

    "Excellent Recording"

    This was a phenomenal recording of one of the greatest classics of all time. George Guidall's version is masterful and Julie Rose's translation flows and stays true to the original. I loved hearing the details of France at the time, several of which were omitted from abridged versions. I highly recommend it!

    "Good but is missing parts"

    There were some parts that were silent and missing from this audio book. Otherwise well done.

    Story
    "Amazing"

    Beautifully translated and expertly narrated.
    A tremendous story and must-read for all. Although I would recommend the abridged version for the faint of heart (or mind). Hugo waxes philosophical not infrequently, but you have to remember this is as much a history as it is a novel. Ultimately, what you're left with is a devastating tale of redemption.

    "Wow, What a book!"

    I can't believe I finished it. It seemed like such a big task when I started, now I am sad it is done. It is an oddly meander story, but one well worth the time!
