I was going to ask the same thing ... shortly. My copy's not actually arrived yet, due to a mix-up. I was informed that it had been demanded back from the person who received it in my stead and would go on its way to me as soon as it had returned to store, and that 'We do not need you to return the book sent to you in error as it is not worth much.', which was rather amusing, considering "Cosette" was worth €0.07 to them (plus three for shipping).

So, at any rate, I'm still up for the group reading. If you're starting now, I'll catch up as soon as possible.

Mine came in last week! I've been horrifying my friends with Chapter Nine and the beginning of Chapter Ten for days. And I jumped the gun a little and read chapter one this morning just for the lulz. But I'm always willing to put on the brakes for a second.

I'm up for starting (or holding on) whenever you guys are!

If I can find a library that has it, count me in...

Ah, I see one that I can request it from...I will probably regret this. :)

Let's lay down some kind of... guideline... or something so we all know what we're up to and we can stay together on this puppy.

There are three volumes to the book, but they're all drastically different in length. Those are broken up into "parts," which are a little more manageable. If you count the epilogue as a part, there are twelve. What say we assign three "parts" of the book to each week of December? That means we're all a little behind, I guess. It's a loose idea, but then we can all stay together and react with identical anger at the same time.

Please tell me if you have a more coherent idea, by the way. I'm just trying to get the ball rolling.

LOL I remember this. Albeit vaguely.

I remember thinking that Scarlett (sequel to Gone With the Wind) was a masterpiece by comparison after reading it. But I haven't read either in a long time, something tells me I'd wonder how I managed back then if I re-read them again. D8

I'm up with lesmisloony about having the readalong sometime and put our reactions on the forum. >w>

You guys can do that. I'm not reading it again. It was the worst book I've ever read.

*pat pat*

Is there an ebook version I can peruse without having to shell out several hundred pesos for such misery?

eh, I wouldn't think so. It's out of print (THANKFULLY). There's like five copies available from my library system, so maybe you could order it from yours?

What a horrid book. I'm still recovering from it.

Oh struth… This sounds like the sort of thing that would have been ripped to bits by reviewers had it appeared on ff.net, and certainly shouldn't have made it into hard copy!

I very nearly choked laughing when I saw this. And I cannot stop laughing.

Apparently, this book ruined Azelma? :( How bad is it?
