This is one of the most beautiful and touching stories ever penned,
and the musical is simply breath-taking in it’s beauty.

I cannot understand how anybody (and there are some) can “hate” this show.
It is a touching, reverent (usually) and redemption-based musical and
very ennobling spiritually.

I can’t even understand why the novel by Victor Hugo was
ever even on the Index of Forbidden Books.
What, in this story, did the Holy See object to ???

Victor Hugo was a bitter foe of the Catholic Church. (Which was funny, because he kept flirting with loving the Church.) Chesterton has some very good essays about Hugo that you might find helpful.

If you read the unabridged novel, there are some very nasty things about the Church in Les Miserables (though not as nasty as in The Hunchback of Notre Dame). The bishop is a great portrayal of a saint, of course, which shows just how weird Hugo was about the Church. He also espoused certain political ideas which went against church teaching (and no, I don’t understand French politics, but I think he was either a socialist, a nationalist, or anti-religion poking out its head at all).

But mostly, I think Hugo’s books got on the Index for sex and violence. It may not seem like much today, but for back then, it was a lot.

Thank you, mintaka,
I couldn’t understand because overwhelmingly, the musical play
is absolutely beautiful.
