Les Misérables

By Victor Hugo

Beginning in 1815 and culminating in the 1832 June Rebellion in Paris, Les Misérables follows the lives and interactions of several characters. The novel begins when Valjean is released from 19 years' imprisonment in the galleys; five for stealing bread to feed his sister's seven starving children and fourteen more for numerous escape attempts. The story follows his struggles and his experience of redemption. Les Misérables contains various subplots, but the main thread is the story of ex-convict Jean Valjean, who becomes a force for good in the world but cannot escape his criminal past. The novel as a whole is one of the longest ever written. Les Misérables is considered one of the greatest novels of the 19th century. This edition is limited to 1,000 copies.
