Reading progress update: I've listened 2730 out of 3660 minutes.
Les Misérables - Victor Hugo

There are so many monologues and tangents it's hard to remember the actual story.

Les Misérables - Victor Hugo

Back to this again. I figure I WILL finish this before the end of 2019. If it weren't for the audiobook I wouldn't be doing this at all.

 

Also, here's my son's birthday gift! All finished. 

 

 

And I'm working on this awesome Freddie Mercury for my husband.

Reading progress update: I've listened 1830 out of 3660 minutes.
Les Misérables - Victor Hugo

Finished with audiobook 3/7 and I'm halfway thru 4. There are so many rants and monologues in this. Plus pages and pages of superfluous descriptions. Sometimes it's like this guy was needing a word count for an assignment and did what we all do, just filling the page with a thesaurus. 

 

I was almost upset because we left Cozette behind and went on to a new cast of characters. But now we seem to have circled back to her and Jean.

As promised, here is the finished alligator scarf. My husband approved. Said it was "actually really cool".

 

 

This book is both linear and meandering. I have learned minute detailed about Waterloo, Parisian road from 1750-1870, and now a cloister of Benedictine nuns. Sigh. But at least Cozette is doing better.

Part 2 of 7 done!

 

Not sure why we needed an entire book dedicated to Waterloo. So much of this novel is superfluous flowery wording. 

 

Current project: an alligator scarf. Crocheted in a shell stitch to simulate scales. Will have a head, legs and a tail.
