One of the greatest tales of hatred, redemption, and love ever told! The central plot concerns Jean Valjean, an ex-con in post-Napoleonic France whose life is "bought back from the devil" by a merciful priest. From there on, Valjean struggles to redeem himself and come to grips with his past while rasing the orphan Cosette and fleeing from the unrelenting pursuit of Police Chief Javert. An excellent illustration of man's malice toward his fellow man and the human condition, this epic periodpiece stands out as one of the greatest literary works of all time. VERY highly recommended!!!!!!
