- Part 2…4601
My re-read continues, as the Bishop learns a lesson about nobility, and an ex-con named Jean Valjean has a life-changing experience. 118 pages and counting.
- Ambush in the Slums
Marius meets his wretched neighbors, the Thenardiers, who try to extort money from Jean Valjean and Cosette. A tense standoff is interrupted by Javert.
- Epic Fail at Mugging
Montparnasse tries to mug Jean Valjean...while Gavroche is watching...outside Mabeuf's garden. It doesn't go well for Montparnasse.
- Over the Edge
Marius and Cosette's secret meetings start off well. They even escape an attempted robbery. But everything falls apart just as Paris begins to boil over.
