    " I was forced to read this... but I ended up LOVING it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carri | 1/30/2014

    " I loved this book! Such a beautiful story of grace and love! Would highly recommend it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ashley Vaughan | 1/22/2014

    " Astonishingly good. Although its a classic I had not expected it to be as good as it is. There are few superlatives to do it justice. The themes of grace, hope and love throughout the narrative awakened and refreshed my soul at virtually every turn of a page. Breathtaking. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenna Mills | 1/18/2014

    " It took a while, but was well worth it. The story plot had many twists, turns and tangles - enough to entertain, grip and surprise me even though I knew the MAIN story, having watched the film (which did a great job of bringing this to life). At times, it was difficult to concentrate - the detail of the Battle of Waterloo where I felt I was suddenly in the midst of reading a totally different book, for one thing! He did well to stick to his liberal convictions and assert his opinions throughout though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rom | 1/7/2014

    " Probably the best book I have ever read, compelling characters, a fast paced plot (if with some diversions) and even in the slower parts Hugo's prose makes you want to read more. Some of the lines in this book made me stop and just appreciate how "true" or beautiful they were. I will be re-reading as soon as time allows "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sjbeale | 1/7/2014

    " Fantastic story - it would have been the best book I've ever read without question were it not for some of the rambling chapters about classical history. That said, it's still an absolute work of art, even in translation. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Watergirl | 9/20/2013

    " Beautiful story and a gem of a book - my life is richer for having read it. Merci, Mr. Hugo. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gabriel Valjan | 5/1/2013

    " A Christ of a novel. Epic in canvas and scale. The novel is the Tarot of novels. The Transfigured Man, Jean Valjean, passes from despair through the Stations of Agony to arrive at Grace. The movies and the plays move, but the novel annihilates. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John | 4/17/2013

    " Maybe the best book I read during college. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David Roberts | 8/7/2012

    " Outstanding novel that is long but extremely well written and translated. I even like the ~100 pages on Waterloo and the 60+ pages on the construction of the Parisian sewers! Hard not to cry, hard, at the end of this one... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeanee Shin | 5/30/2012

    " Must have interest in commitment, minute details, major and minor character analysis, and French history. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Austin Chambers | 3/27/2012

    " Best book on my shelf. Deep and poetic in a way anyone can relate to. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenn | 2/12/2012

    " I loved this book! Not only is the story captivating and intricately woven, but the writing is so superbly poetic, it draws your heart in even more! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary Korey | 1/24/2012

    " Extremely well written but there is a need to plow through chapters of background material that is tedious. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alec | 1/6/2012

    " Every bit the masterpiece it is publicized to be on the human as well as the historical level. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda | 12/21/2011

    " Great read but extremely enjoyable as a live production/movie "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leata Holloway | 10/23/2011

    " To be honest, I read this in eighth grade. I don't remember many specifics about it, but I made it through the WHOLE DAMN THING. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chip Auman | 10/9/2011

    " Best novel ever written - bar none! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kate | 6/22/2011

    " The single most important work in the history of literature. A masterpiece expose on the human condition. Victor Hugo's magnum opus should be a prerequisite to being a part of the human race. In these pages, we find the soul of mankind. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kayla Marie | 6/20/2011

    " I love the first book; Cosette. The rest of the book was terrible! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Johnny | 6/17/2011

    " Not for the faint-hearted, or the impatient. A fantastic, rewarding read. I'll take Hugo's sprawling epic over fast-paced modern fiction like Dan Brown. Hugo does big books the way Stephen King wished he could. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jarkko | 6/13/2011

    " It's a very long time since I read the book in high school but I still remember it vividly. I guess that means it is a great book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katie | 6/12/2011

    " There's a reason why this book is a classic. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelly | 6/10/2011

    " I had to read this in 10th grade for school, so I don't appreciate it as much as I probably should...I'll definitely try reading it again soon though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharon | 6/10/2011

    " I loved this book. I've read it twice and am bound to read it again. "
