Hugo describes early 19th-century France with a sweeping power that gives his novel epic stature. Among the most famous chapters are an account of the battle of Waterloo and a description of Valjean's flight through the Paris sewers.

Absolutely wonderfully engaging telling of this classic. I had been put off originally from trying to read this because of the length of the original book, but this abridge version tells the story without leaving you feeling cheated. I am very glad I did listen to this - one of the best stories written, and told well by the narrator.
