Emoticoning but with letters.

Les Misérables - Victor Hugo, Norman MacAfee, Lee Fahnestock Don't know if I will ever read this, having now seen the film, which proceeds at such a blistering pace and so inappropriately in song, and is yet so inexplicably popular that I had to stop afterwards and convince myself I was a human being. People appeared on screen for the first time then died not 15 minutes later. Am I supposed to care? Dude, I don't know who you are/were! And just talk for bejeezus sake!

Poor Hewgs, I really wonder what he would have thought of it, considering what I know of the book is that it is so serious and was so controversial for the time, I can hardly imagine him saying 'Oh yeah get them all singing and totally, comic relief (even more inappropriate) from Sacha Baron Cohen? That's a great idea!'

Seriously, musicals. Seriously. Musicals. Seriously.
