    Introduction by Adam Gopnik


    In this major new rendition by the acclaimed translator Julie Rose, Victor Hugo’s Les Miserables is revealed in its full, unabridged glory. A favorite of readers for nearly 150 years, this stirring tale of crime, punishment, justice, and redemption pulses with life. Featuring such unforgettable characters as the quintessential prisoner of conscience Jean Valjean, the relentless police detective Javert, and the tragic prostitute Fantine and her innocent daughter, Cosette, Hugo’s epic novel sweeps readers from the French provinces to the back alleys of Paris, and from the battlefield of Waterloo to the bloody ramparts of Paris during the uprising of 1832. With an Introduction by Adam Gopnik, this Modern Library edition is an outstanding translation of a masterpiece that continues to astonish and entertain readers around the world.

    • Finally, unabridged!!

      I was searching for an unabridged version of Les Miserables everywhere and no one else had it. So if you want the full story - and why would you not??? - no need to look further than this book. I read Les Mis in highschool and loved it so this purchase was for my highschool aged son. He's really enjoying it. One nice feature is the extra notes about Victor Hugo, timeline etc. to enhance the story and make it a real learning experience. Very pleased with the book!
