PRAISE FOR TOILERS OF THE SEA
“I can't get enough of Hugo. This is possibly his most overlooked novel. If you are looking for a book and man vs nature read this one it's heart wrenching but oh so good.” Kristin

“Religion, society, nature: such are the three struggles in which man is engaged … In Notre-Dame de Paris the author denounced the first of these; in Les Misérables he drew attention to the second; in this book he points to the third.” Victor Hugo

“One part epic drama, one part satiric wit, one part ethnographic study of Guernsey Island in the mid 1800s, one part battle between man and nature, one part spiritual allegory, and the topping is two parts elegant prose.” Ferris

PRAISE FOR THE RED THUMB MARK
“I wouldn't be surprised if the creators of the television shows "Columbo," "Quincy, M.E." and the various incarnations of "CSI" all, at some point earlier in their lives, read and fell in love with "The Red Thumb Mark." Reading for the first time R. Austin Freeman's detective novel, first published in 1907, is like discovering the wellspring of every subsequent book, film and television show in which a detective uses innovative scientific or medical techniques to solve a crime.” Daniel
“Mr. Freeman is a past-master of the gradual, cumulative art of mystifying. The facts he keeps casually mentioning become a maze of criminal cunning. At the moment of his own choosing he discloses a plan of admirable symmetry.” Times Literary Supplement

THE EYE OF OSIRIS
“London, late 1890's, early 1900's, science, murder mystery, Egyptian antiquities, Dr. John Thorndyke (no Holmesian addictions) as a professor of medicine and 'pathological sleuth'. What's not to like? And a little to learn about murder, the problem of survivorship, a bit of a love story, too” Karen S

JOHN THORNDYKE’S CASES
“A kind of Edwardian London CSI. It appealed to my scientific mind. Essentially a collection of short stories featuring the remarkable deductive powers of Dr Thorndyke.” Jack

THE MYSTERY OF 31 NEW INN
“Good mystery! Thorndyke reminds me a lot of Hercule Poirot or Sherlock Holmes. He's very smart but wants his assistants (and readers) to come to their own conclusions. The twist at the end may surprise you, but John Thorndyke is never surprised.” Becki

THREE GREATEST HISTORICAL NOVELS OF VICTOR HUGO: Les Misérables, The Hunchback of Notre-dame, Toilers of the Sea (illustrated)

READ ALL THREE OF VICTOR HUGO’S GREATEST HISTORICAL NOVELS IN ONE BEAUTIFULLY ILLUSTRATED EDITION
“Three of the best novels of history, adventure, romance, and sheer amazing page-turning enjoyment that have ever been written.” Classic Books

Includes:
LES MISÉRABLES
THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE-DAME
TOILERS OF THE SEA

3 of the best books of all time -Illustrated with vintage illustrations
-Complete, unabridged, and formatted for kindle to improve your reading experience
-Linked table of contents to reach your book quickly

PRAISE FOR LES MISÉRABLES
"One of the half-dozen greatest novels of the world." Upton Sinclair
“One of the 1000 novels everyone must read” The Guardian
“Hugo's massive narrative follows the career of Jean Valjean, a convict, imprisoned for 19 years for stealing a loaf of bread to feed his family. On his release, he steals some silver candlesticks from a bishop, who forgives him. This act of kindness sets Valjean on the path of righteousness. He becomes a successful industrialist, mayor and family man — although always haunted by his criminal past.” John Sutherland

THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE-DAME
“Jealousy, loneliness, and unrequited love all play a part in this moving human drama, set against the towering backdrop of a timeless Parisian landmark.” Daily Lit
“This is definitely my favourite classic, I loved the dark atmosphere of the book, and the setting being Notre-Dame, which is one of my favourite places in Paris. It's not entirely dark and horrible, there are times when it can be humorous, but it's brutal in terms of showing what obsession can become when it's misunderstood as love and the true form of love shown by other characters.” Leah

TOILERS OF THE SEA
“I can't get enough of Hugo. This is possibly his most overlooked novel. If you are looking for a book and man vs nature read this one it's heart wrenching but oh so good.” Kristin
“Religion, society, nature: such are the three struggles in which man is engaged … In Notre-Dame de Paris the author denounced the first of these; in Les Misérables he drew attention to the second; in this book he points to the third.” Victor Hugo
“One part epic drama, one part satiric wit, one part ethnographic study of Guernsey Island in the mid 1800s, one part battle between man and nature, one part spiritual allegory, and the topping is two parts elegant prose.” Ferris
