Hugo's classic tale set against the backdrop of political upheaval in 19th-century France retains its timeless appeal in this notably condensed rendition of the struggles of former convict Jean Valjean.
It follows the lives and interactions of several French characters over a twenty-year period in the early 19th century, starting in 1815 and culminating in the 1832 June Rebellion.
Les Mis is a fantastic, detailed journey through human psychology.
The novel focuses on the struggles of ex-convict Jean Valjean and his experience of redemption. It examines the nature of law and grace, and expounds upon the history of France, architecture of Paris, politics, moral philosophy, antimonarchism, justice, religion, and the types and nature of romantic and familial love. The story is historical fiction because it contains factual and historic events.
