Les Misérables by Victor Hugo

This is a powerful and beautifully sad story. It’s the kind of sadness that makes you cry and smile at the same time. I saw the movie before I read the book and fell in love with the characters. Perhaps my favorite part of the book was learning more of the background history and enjoying the language. I admire Victor Hugo for his ability to create such a rich story that can not only survive, but thrive throughout the decades.
