Summary Note CLASSIC FICTION. This title is presented with an introduction by Adam Thirlwell. Sensational, dramatic, packed with rich excitement and filled with the sweep and violence of human passions, "Les Miserables" is one of the greatest adventure stories ever told. It is a novel peopled by colourful characters from the nineteenth-century Parisian underworld; the street children, the prostitutes and the criminals. In telling the story of escaped convict Jean Valjean, and his efforts to reform his ways and care for the little orphan girl he rescues from a life of cruelty, Victor Hugo drew attention to the plight of the poor and oppressed. "Les Miserables" is a masterful detective story, a comic and tragic story of romance and revolution and, ultimately, a tale of redemption and hope.
