Here the Book is Best

Les Misérables is today’s suggestion.  To me, it’s in the top ten list of best books—hopefully you’ll enjoy it too.

It starts out ever so slowly (I sputtered after a hundred pages at one point), but have faith, it will speed up.  It’s filled with adventures, battles, and even romance,  It had one chapter, in particular,  which was really hair-raising, the first time I read it; and even though having finished the chapter leaves you comprehending the mystery you’ll still want to read the whole book over and over again.

I wouldn’t recommend any movie versions of this; I watched part of an older one, and it was lousy; newer one’s far too short, and a musical; but then, I’m a purist in such things.
