    Here are many which speak volumes regarding the book.

    Why did you ask this question in the classical music category when Les Miserables isn't classical music? I would suggest that you ask it again in music other or performing arts or film music. You are going to get much better answers from these categories because the people there are going to be more interested in this type of music.
