First things first: I received this book through NetGalley.
I have such a love/hate relationship with Les Mis. I would love to love it, but I just don't. until now. I seriously suffered through the movie, fell asleep more than once and only watched it from beginning to end until the third attempt. I never read the actual book cause the size of that thing is scaring the crap out of me.
But somehow the people working on the Manga made it work for me. Compared to the movie and the book, the manga was very short and sweet. And I loved it, especially cause I don't think they actual missed anything. I'm impressed, people. Also the fact, that this may not be as in depth as the book or the movie, but man, I felt these characters and cared about them a lot.
So, I HIGHLY recommend this Manga, I'm a changed person now when it comes to Les Mis.
