Adapted and abridged for younger readers- - or for those without the time to read through Victor Hugo's classic tome- - this edition of Les Miserables retains the richness and beauty of the original with approximately one-fifth of the original wording. The story is of Jean Valjean's repentance and quest to live a righteous life, all the while being pursued by the relentless Inspector Javert - Les Mis is a classic story of redemption and grace.
The Hunchback of Notre Dame
Before the huge crowd that packed the cathedral square, Esmeralda stood between two executioners. Suddenly, Quasimodo, the hunchback of Notre Dame, rushed at the executioners and felled them with his enormous fists. He snatched the gypsy girl in one arm and ran with her into the church. A moment later he appeared at the top of the bell tower. Holding the girl above his head, he showed her triumphantly to all of Paris while his thunderous voice roared savagely to the sky: "Sanctuary! Sanctuary! Sancturay!"
