I finished Les Miserables last night, and now I’m experiencing withdrawals. I want somebody to discuss it with, but nobody has read it…and I’d recommend it to you all right now, but I know not one of you will listen to me and go and read it, because it’s so long and who has time for that and yada yada yada. I know. Just for the record, though…it’s an amazing book.
Anyway, to say good-bye, I’ve got just a few more closing quotes. *tear*
p. 1342: “’By the hundred thousand Javottes of the devil, those brigands assassinated him!’ ‘Who, monsieur?’ ‘Andre Chenier!’”
That one will only make sense to you if you read the book. Not even the movie or the play would do it for you for this one. But I can look back on it and laugh.
p. 1368: “Everything can be parodied, even parody.”
And that’s it. I miss it already.
