An ex-convict Jean Valjean breaks his parole and an inspector Javert tries to find him for years. He almost catches him a few times, but he always escapes. He adopts a little girl Cosette and they move to Paris. 
In 1832 the revolution is preparing and one of the revolutionaries is Marius Pontmercy who falls in love with Cosette, but he still fights on the barricade and he's the only survior. 

I love the book, because of all the details. I love the story itself, but if you only watch the film or the musical, you miss a lot of little things. I also like it because you can learn a lot from it, not just important things for life, but also about the Paris sewers and the Waterloo fight.

It would be awesome if we had a 2nd Book Lovers Challenge :)
