Les Miserables by Victor Hugo

At the end of last year, Historical Tapestry hosted a readalong of Les Miserables by Victor Hugo. While I didn't get the book read in time to post about it by the time the readalong finished, I did finish it last week! I felt very accomplished when I closed that book I can tell you!

Anyway, Bree from All the Books I Can Read had a discussion about the book and touched on things like the movie, the tangents (oh the tangents), the translations and more.

Normally I cross post my reviews here, but it is a bit hard to do that with a discussion. If you are interested in seeing our thoughts though you can read the first half of the discussion on my blog and the second part on Bree's blog!

I have two more discussion style reviews that I will be doing the ssame kind of linking for too!


  1. Love this book and I know what you mean as a accomplishment I too found that same feeling when I closed Rise and Fall of the Third Reich that was a 1500 page book and I was in 11th grade but I read tons of holocaust books and love HF set in that time period. Les Mis took me on a revolutionary ride and I loved every word. Beautiful only thing more beautiful is reading this book in French. Great Read A Long Event hope to see more:)

  2. I've never read Les Miserables, I would love to read it one day. When I finished War and Peace, I felt like I accomplished a huge goal.

    1. War and Peace is going to be my next 'big' book.
