So I watched the musical Les Miserables, a few months ago, and while I did love the movie overall, I noticed there were characters that I absolutely adored, and others I just hated, and some that were just meh.

Keep in mind I have not read the novel, so bear with me!


8. Cosette




I honestly adored her when she was a child, but I hated adult her. She was super boring, a Mary Sue, annoying and an overall bad character! For one, her relationship with Marius annoys me and comes out of nowhere. Another thing I dislike about her is that she leaves the Thenaiders, but she just acts like it never...

I was reading Charles Dicken's A Tale of Two Cities and I notice that it reminds me of Les Miserables in a way, ready to read my observation?

A Tale of Two Cities

Since they're set in France, many of the characters reminds me of their Les Miserables counterparts! Like Doctor Manette reminds me of Jean Valjean, due to the fact that they were prisoners. Unlike the latter, Doctor Manette suffers from a relapse throughout the story which prompted Mr Lorry to destroy the shoe making bench.
The Defarge reminds me of the Thenadiers, unlike the latter, the Defarge are not corrupted. Madame Defarge...

Okay, I basically know that these 2 songs were written specially for the movie. So here are my reasons on why Suddenly and it's reprise should be included in the stage version or not.

It should be in the Stage Version

As some of us (including myself) had seen the stage and watched the movie, I personally think that the song really should be in the stage version, because it shows that it's Valjean's moment and he's telling us that is going to be a father for the first time and telling us that he will try his best despite it was not the right time to tell Cossette about his past. I also personally...

Hi guys, I had seen the 10th anniversary and bits of the 25th anniversary on Youtube. So here is my thoughts on both show!

10th Anniversary Concert

When I first borrowed the DVD from a friend, my first impression was that it was a spectacular moment that you really want to watch it live!
The cast were amazing, and I was also surprise that Frances Ruffelle was never ask to reprise her role as Eponine, despite the fact that Lea Salonga was also very good!
Surprisingly, Madame Thenadier's part in Castle on a Cloud was shortened. So was Turning, I have always wonder why though?
Finally, I love...

What do we love Les Mis for? Well – you'll say – where should we start? The story, the characters, the music, the great performances... And, last, but not least: the lyrics.
I love the lyrics of Les Miserables and think they express much in a very simple way. I will focus on 10 texts which I've chosen and I will write what makes them so deep and worth of our attention. It's going to be a kind of litterary analysis, but not taken too strictly. The order of the songs will be like in the musical (well, this time is the exception). So, we will start with...
