I will introduce one woman who is Fantine. I don’t know her correct age, but she is maybe middle of twenty because she has a little daughter. She has no family and husband. She only has one daughter and loves her very much. She is a beautiful woman and has shiny and long hair. She is also a poor woman because she doesn’t have money and has to raise her daughter by herself.
Fantine’s life changed when her boyfriend left her and her daughter. Before her boyfriend left them, she didn’t work at a factory. After her boyfriend left them, she worked at a factory because she had to earn money to raise Cosette. For example, on page 7 chapter 2 “The man leaves poor Fantine with a child, a little girl called Cosette. Fantine must find work.” Before her boyfriend left them, she lived with Cosette. After her boyfriend left them, she couldn’t live with Cosette because she had to go to the other nation for working and to earn money. For example, on page 7 chapter 2 “ she leaves her little daughter with Monsieur and Madame Thenardier. They ask for seven francs a month.” Fantine’s life changed when she met Jean Valjean. Before she met Jean Valjean, she was arrested and had to go to prison. After she met Jean Valjean, she didn’t have to go to prison because Jean Valjean helped Fantine. For example, on page 12 chapter 2 “ ‘She must go free,’ said Monsieur Madeleine.” Before she met Jean Valjean, she couldn’t help Cosette because she was ill and she couldn’t send money to Cosette. After she met Jean Valjean, she could help Cosette. Jean Valjean helped Fantine. For example, on page 12 chapter 2 “Monsieur Madeleine listened to her sad story, and the next day he sent money to the Thenardiers.”
I thought the book was excellent for me because it was good to study. The book’s words and story were a little difficult. So, I didn’t understand the book’s story at first. I found what the word’s mean and studied them. Some time later, I could understand the book’s story. I felt that to read English books was good to study English. So, I decided to read more English books and study more words.
