The latest episode of @readlesmispod covers the amazing scene where Eponine single-handedly stares down 6 hardened criminals and wins. As always, their analysis turns up some really interesting connections with other parts of the book!

@readlesmispod …like the fact that Eponine channels both Javert and Thenardier, the two main antagonists, but uses their traits to act heroically.

Each time I’ve read #LesMis, I’ve appreciated the chapter on argot more. @readlesmispod’s latest episode is on that chapter, and they give it even more context, illustrating how language can be used for gatekeeping…or rebellion.

Found this tweet from the previous time I read Les Miserables, back in 2013. I took several breaks to read other books, including the environmental dystopia The Windup Girl by Paolo Bacigalupi.

I finished reading #LesMis last month, but I’m still listening to @readlesmispod every week. It’s fascinating & highly recommended for anyone who has read or wants to read the book. The most recent episode covers Marius’ introduction to Enjolras & the ABC Society.

RT @readlesmispod: OK: it’s not about the French Revolution, and his name isn’t “Jalvert.” But we’re excited enough about this adaptation to overlook all that…. via @MetroUK
