"One of the half-dozen greatest novels of the world." Upton Sinclair

“One of the 1000 novels everyone must read” The Guardian

“Let's say that I could choose a single book with the guarantee that every man, woman, and child would read it. . . . I would choose this one." Aubrey

“I still find this book the best book on the planet. The plot is incredible, and the characters are so real and varying in personalities. Because of this, LES MISÉRABLES is filled with some of the nicest and cruellest characters I have ever encountered in a book.” Lauren Beck

“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

“This is without question one of the most beautifully written novels I've ever read. Jean Valjean is quite possibly the most complex and compelling character you will meet in a work of literature of this magnitude." Miriam

LES MISÉRABLES is one of the most exciting epic adventures of all time. Presented in a beautiful edition specially designed for kindle, this is Hugo’s masterpiece which will stay with you forever.

Read it as it’s meant to be read with over 30 classic illustrations, complete, and unabridged.
