Les Misérables, All Over.
I have been reading this lately and I have to tell you I have never enjoyed a classic work of fiction more than this. Although its huge, I mean literally gigantic, its still a page turner. You cant stop reading once you pick it up.
I am far from finished though. I have just completed Fantine and I have got a lot of the novel yet to read, but still I love every bit of it up till now.
Here is one of the ideas that captured my attention:
I really like the subtle biblical touch that this has, while still proclaiming a certain bit of modern thought that successfully transcends through the generations, presenting itself in a clever and powerful way to the readers. I couldn't copy the entire passage that succeeds it but that was also very well written, just like the rest of the novel.
Also I read this article in the guardian that presents an interesting critical analysis about the gigantic length of this novel. This made me appreciate the novel even more.
By the way I am not listening to any song right now. Maybe I am listening to the silence, that could be a song in itself too. Maybe.
And, not related to this topic, but I am in love with this game called Two Dots. To me, its relaxing and engaging.
And when a game has stuff like this, who wouldn't fall in love with it.
