Okay, maybe not, but it’s strange how much Jean Valjean is like a super hero.
- He had a bad beginning, jailed for 19 years.
- He creates a new persona and makes piles of money.
- He saves people’s lives, putting himself in peril.
- He has a nemesis: Javert. Javert is a super villain because he never gives up trying to get Jean Valjean.
- Jean Valjean can scale walls and is super strong!
- He has two parts to his personality, the criminal and the saint, and uses them accordingly.
As you can tell, I’m completely enjoying reading Les Misérables. I’m not getting much else done though.
Can you see Hugh Jackman as Jean Valjean? I’m not sure. I guess we’ll find out in December when the movie comes out!
