I finished Les Miserables on Sunday, reading almost half the book that day. (Yes, I read fast. I also did a lot of skimming over Hugo's digressions!)

I think my favorite part may be Javert's suicide note. As he's having his crisis of conscience (a true dark night of the soul!), he stares out over the railings of a bridge into the roiling waters, and finally comes to the conclusion that he cannot live in this weird new world that's been opened up to him. So he then goes back to the police station and composes a memo to his superiors explaining things that are wrong with their procedures and ways to fix them, then goes back out and throws himself off the bridge. XD Oh, Javert.
