Loved this book - it was a selection from my former book club a few years ago! Didn't know there was a movie coming out....

I loved this book! I hadn't been reading much before and after Cricket was born. And I missed it. This was one of the first books I read when I got back into reading. The whole story is just so good. I am definitely interested in seeing the movie!

yes!! I had to read it before the movie comes out. I will admit, I was much happier with the endings than I expected!

At 720 pages I'm HALFWAY thorough Les Mis. I don't think I'm going to finish before book group on April 14. I re-watched the movie and they left so much out that it's hard to even follow at times. Such a great story, though.

Hmm, sounds like it should be my next audiobook. I've been wanting to read it for quite some time.

Audio book would be the way to go. Especially with all the French names of people and cities.
