Les Mis Progress:

462 / 755 (61.19%)

We're learning about Jean Valjean and Cosette's life post-convent. In a lot of detail. Some details about who used to live in their house before they did, too. It's totally relevant! And also an excuse for one of Hugo's more charming lines about how in a certain recently-passed era the aristos flaunted their mistresses and the bourgeoisie hid them away; this was the former dwelling-place of the latter sort of mistress, you see.
