Although I was having a hard time reading this book, I cannot turn my eyes from the depth of the book. Victor Hugo's intention of preaching the world the power of spreading joy among the poor, women, and children is very powerfully expressed by writing about some of the greatest people of the history. Their dedication towards helping other knew no bounds. While skim reading, I managed to notice the noble cause that this book served. The thickness of the book may have terrified me, but I cannot decline my soul of the wonderful lessons compiled in it. Therefore, this is my resolution that I will pick this book once again in my life -- not today, though -- and finish it until the end. That day will mark the beginning of a new "Me."
Despite feeling overwhelmed with the content and extra descriptive narration of the book, I understood one simple fact that this book is very powerful and enriching. It has a life-changing lesson of helping the downtrodden with everything that you've in your possession. The bishop of chapter.1. lived a life ridden of any worldly pleasures, and yet, encouraged the rich to provide for the poor of the society. He went above and beyond -- in his capacity -- and inspired many people in whichever possible way. His preachings and actions were in sync and that is what makes his life worth following.
The profundity of the book cannot be disregarded. I could not complete the book, but one day I'll come back to this same book. I cannot insist enough on the fact that my failed attempt at finishing the book has no reflection on the wisdom, quality, and significance of the book; this only reflects on me not being prepared enough to embrace the beauty of this book, at least now.
