Gabe Stewart's Blog Takeover
Book Review: Les Miserables by Victor Hugo
Hey peeps! I hope your having a rockin' day! Huge kudos to the super dope Gina Dickerson for having me here.
Lately I’ve started reading these classic books and reviewing them. Anyway, here's my review on this book by Vic Hugo.
Let me say that these people were MAJOR overreactors. So there's this girl, Jean Valjean, who steals this loaf of bread. They put her in prison. I mean, holy cow. Talk about extremes. Jean even has to change her identity. Oh, okay, wait. My best friend, K, just told me that he wasn’t a woman, but a dude.
So there's this guy, Jean Valjean. I guess maybe he gets a sex change? Anyway, he has to change his name and move to another town where he becomes the mayor. Then he helps this dying prostitute and ends up raising her child, Cosette. Then he’s captured and escapes. There’s a lot of capturing and escaping–seriously, this dude is like Houdini.
Meanwhile, people are still hunting him over this damn loaf of bread. I mean, geez! Who the heck cares about a few carbs. I would have just baked a new loaf and turned it in. K, do you know how to make bread? Okay, K says I’m getting off topic.
I'll tell you one thing. The book is really well titled because everybody in the book is freaking miserable. I mean, why even get out of bed? Most of them don't even have beds or bathe. And then Jean dies at the end. Can somebody give me a hug?
Gabe's Take: If you don't mind reading about some unpleasant people who've had a sex change, this is the book for you.
