Description from Wikipedia:

Les Misérables is an 1862 novel by French author Victor Hugo, and among the best-known novels of the 19th century. It follows the lives and interactions of several French characters over a twenty year period in the early 19th century that includes the Napoleonic wars and subsequent decades. Principally focusing on the struggles of the protagonist—ex-convict Jean Valjean—who seeks to redeem himself, the novel also examines the impact of Valjean's actions for the sake of social commentary. It examines the nature of good, evil, and the law, in a sweeping story that expounds upon the history of France, architecture of Paris, politics, moral philosophy, law, justice, religion, and the types and nature of romantic and familial love.

English translation by Isabel F. Hapgood.

I can't promise when or even if I'll finish it, but I'm working on a formatted version of the Hapgood translation. The start point is the PG version, which has some illustrations and a little formatting. (I said in my recent thread on formatting that it had no italics, but the Aristotlean I is in fact formatted, tho' as far as I can tell, nothing else!)

I've finished book one of the first volume, which on a rough page count means I've done 3.5%.

It's a near 2MB .docx file, and doesn't zip to less. Should I post a copy here so others can pick up the project if I'm unable to complete it?
