Best of the Best LES MISÉRABLES Covers

I’m a bit of a Les Mis junkie (look, I was raised on the musical, I can’t help it), so my excitement for the upcoming BBC adaptation can only be expressed in operatic musical numbers set against the backdrop of a precarious barricade. I’m joking—kind of. But seriously, it feels like the right time to spread some love for the book the musical and upcoming mini-series adaptation are based on. Because trust me, it deserves lots of love, too! And in honor of that, here are some of the best of the best Les Misérables covers (in my humble opinion).
