Get the les misérables mug.
A novel written by Victor Hugo, first published in 1862, that has film and musical adaptations.
Consisting of 5 parts, all of which are set in different times, the novel can be considered as 5 volumes rather than the 1 book.

The most well known and regarded part is set in June 1832 and based loosely around the June rebellion. Important characters and dates in this section are accurate as Victor Hugo (the author) was present for part of said rebellion.
Les Misérables also happens to be the best selling musical of all time. It was first opened and performed in English on the 8th of October, 1985 by the Royal Shakespeare Company.
The film was released in 2012.
Les Misérables is amazing but the film casting, as well as the casting in previous musical productions, has sparked conflict within fans. Fans of the novel are often not fond of the musical as it is inaccurate,
