Les Miserables.

I recently went to go see Les Mis and wow, just wow. It is an utterly beautiful film. I am one of those grumpy people that don't really enjoy musicals unless they come in the form of a Disney film, but Les Mis played my heart like a harp. To tell you the truth I will happily put it all down to Hugh Jackman (what an amazing voice wolvey) I mean it though, if it wasn't for him I wouldn't have being half as eager as I was to go see it. Oh also, big kudos to Anne Hathaway for cutting her beautiful hair for the film, I don't think I would ever have the balls to do that.
Anyway, the pictures!
This is my Great Grandfathers book, which my mum found whilst she was clearing out and I just thought it was so beautiful and now it proudly sits in my bedroom.
I've being really sick and drained lately but I am determined to push myself and this blog further.
I'm really interested to find out what you all think of Les Miserables?

I also have a pretty big blogging project am working on!

  2. What a lovely hard copy of Les Mis! I love worn books so much. It's funny because I actually didn't enjoy Les Mis as much as I thought I would? I liked Hugh Jackman (though I had trouble unseeing wolverine) and the rest of the cast, but I felt like the movie was really disjointed compared to the book. It was still enjoyable overall though.

    1. Same, they are something that I want a huge collection of :')Hahaha, I know what you mean about Hugh Jackman I was half expecting him to get really angry and stab someone. I completely understand what you mean about the film being disjointed, I think the producers were expecting everyone to know the story really well so they didn't bother to explain or give back stories, which really they should have done for anyone who wasn't familiar with the storyline. ♥

  3. I absolutely love le mis! its such a wonderful play, novel, movie....just amazing. This is such a beautiful copy of le mis, and you've done a great job photographing it! I highly suggest reading the book (my suggestion is to just skip through the 50 odd page rants of Hugo on democracy, but the actual story is perfect), its a tricky but rewarding read xx

  7. I loved the film. Anne, in my opinion did wonderful. Can you believe she chopped of her hair lost i think 14 pounds for the part. Dedicated (and crazy) is what I call that :)

  8. Wow that book looks amazing! I am obsessed with the film no I thought that everyone was amazing and there wasn't a weak performance! I think that Sam Barks, Helena Bohnam-Carter and Sacha Baron-Cohen always get overlooked!

  13. I loved the film so much (mainly because of my love for Eddie Redmayne but...)! This is so awesome, I love when books look 'used'. I'm currently attempting to read the french copy of Les Mis!

  14. I am in love with your copy of the book! A truly beautiful story and book.
    I suggest you watch the 25th Anniversary concert of Les Mis. That Jean Valjean (Alfie Boe) has the most beautiful voice ever!
