Book Title: Les Miserables

Author: Victor Hugo

Book Description:

Although written almost 150 years ago, this book has been a great source of insight and inspiration to me. Its portrayal of human nature is highly acute and timeless and the story of the transforming power of forgiveness, compassion and love becomes a compelling moral compass. In a larger sense, this is a book about the human soul and about its aspiration for decency and progress.
