I did it, I finally did it. I finally finished reading this monolithic tome. I started this book in February with the intent to finish it before going to see the play in March...and well, that obviously didn’t happen. But all in all, I liked it! I thought it was a pretty good read. Hugo likes to divert from the main narrative quite often (hence why it’s so long), so that made it a bit grueling at times. But overall, I liked it. And I especially enjoyed picking up on Hugo’s subtle humor throughout the book. He’s got some pretty good one-liners in there. So yeah, if you don’t mind a bit of length, give it a read!
Also a big shout out to this poor book for the torture I have put it through over these last 9 months. Torn covers, broken spine, pages full of dirt, sand, and hot sauce....it’s been a tough journey for both of us, but we made it.
