There are several truths that are universally acknowledged. The Pope is Catholic. The earth rotates around the sun. Every rich single man is in want of a wife. Apples are not oranges. And Les Mis is amazing. The plot is engaging, the characters endearing, believable, and (some) so evil you want to punch them in the face, and the setting captivating.
Les Mis is a classic story about good and evil, with the expected ending. The cool thing about the story is how invested the reader becomes in the characters. You grow to love them, and the ending, while expected, is fulfilling in every sense of the word.
A rating of five stars out of five is deserved with this book. There is a reason that this has been made into a play, a musical, and several movies, each of which is loved the world over.Reviewer: B.F.
