    I assume that you are talking about les miserables. Well, in it's time it was one of the first modern novels ever written, and was enormously successful as well as setting the foundation for modern literature. Later, it was developed into one of the most successful and high grossing musicals of all time, and even later many successful films, most recently the Tom Hooper version. To sum it up, Hugo set the ball rolling for one of the biggest culture trends of all time.
