The worms will be discussing Les Miserables by Victor Hugo (The second 600 pages).
This book explores the idea of redemption of the soul in society/religion and the price of penitence for crimes. Can a person be forgiven? How long should one have to serve to pay their debts, their crimes, their bondage? How should government prosecute crimes, people, debts? Does exact obedience of law bring happiness or following the spirit of the law by trying to do better each day? These are some of the great human questions of the soul explored here.
