Les Misérables - Victor Hugo, Norman MacAfee, Lee Fahnestock :(

My head spins a little thinking about how much happened during the course of this book. Towards the latter quarter of the book, references to events that happened earlier felt like they happened in a different book; this was so long and involved and captivating. Hugo has a unique storytelling technique that I really enjoyed - it read like being told a story aloud. The multitude of characters are easy to love and invest in, but it goes without saying this story is really sad and things are pretty awful fir everyone.
