Hello again, savvy savers! Today finds us with another book review, one of which I am overjoyed to share! Today’s review is of 52 Little Lessons From Les Miserables, by Bob Welch.
52-Little Lessons from Les Miserables by Bob Welch explores simple, easy to understand, high adaptable Bible-bases wisdom and analogues, from one of my favorite novels of all times, Les Miserables, by Victor Hugo. Welch directs the reader through different scenes from Victor Hugo’s own propound commentary about faith, egalitarianism, hope, ethics, love, family, and verses from the Bible. This quaint edition, mirrors the lessons learned by the book hero, Jean Valjean, and through his inner struggles, helps us to re-invent Hugo’s meanings, which not only can be adapted to our present day, modernistic lives, but also provides us with many instances where faith and reality can meet.
As I have long been a fan of both the Les Miserables book and the musical, I was so excited to drink a cup of tea and devour this book this past afternoon. This book, is layer upon layer of applicable lessons on empathy and knowledge, that even the most devout person would mind means to reevaluate your present circumstances. Each of the 52 lessons comprise a separate chapter, so if you have just 5 minutes a day you can read a chapter as they are not very long. Each chapter takes a couple of paragraphs to explain the scene being addressed so the story is familiar. This is a book that will stay on my shelf to reference in the future and also one other members of my family are wanting to read, and several members of my immediate family will also receive copies this holiday season, as well.
