He breaks his parole and commits a minor theft out of habit, beginning the book-long chase with InspectorJavert as the pursuer. Over the course of the book, with the inspector always right behind him, Valjean: becomes mayor of a small seaside town due to the penchant for altruism he developed after his redemption; makes a fortune from his own ingenuity and innovation; does many philanthropic works, among them caring for a dying woman, one of his factory workers, and promising her to ensure the well-being of her daughter Cosette; reveals his identity in court to prevent the wrongful incarceration of another man who was mistaken for him; is captured and sent to the galleys, but escapes to keep his promise; adopts the waifish Cosette, and moves from town to town with his final stop as Paris, where he uses his superhuman powers of transcendental niceness to see to his adopted daughter's happiness and save everyone who needs saving.

You probably know the rest.

You probably know
seems to be developing an interest in Cosette (and who has his own history).

But that niceness may be put to a different test entirely, because by 1830, as Cosette comes of age, a great many ''other'' people in France have had just about enough of
the rest.
very same system that so traumatized Valjean all those years ago, and the crusade of change may be about to sweep over all our dramatis personae...

* KillEmAll: The amount of characters killed or who die during the novel's duration is astounding. Much like some of Hugo's [[LiteratureTheHunchbackOfNotreDame previous work]], you can count the number of major characters who actually survive the novel's events (these being Marius, Cosette, Marius' grandfather M. Gillenormand (although he is elderly and probably passed away soon after the events of the novel anyway), Thenardier and his one remaining daughter Azelma) on one hand.

* BlondeBrunetteRedhead: Contrary to the beliefs of many due to more recent portrayals of the characters in the musical post 2010 and the 2012 movie, Fantine has blonde hair, Cosette has brown, and Éponine's hair is described as auburn.

* AffluentAscetic: Bishop Myriel's position comes with a large salary and a palatial official residence. He allows the local hospital to occupy the palace while he lives in a small adjoining building, and donates nearly all his salary to charity. The only touch of luxury he permits himself is his silverware, which he values for its sentimental associations more than its monetary value.
