    Yes... namely, that Les Miserables was a Victor Hugo work and does not appear in the above photograph.

  • I for one am thankful for the Consumerist. These hucksters at Target (indeed a telling name for this retailer) are simply leveraging an upcoming movie to expose our naive populace to works of fiction that are MORE THAN 30 YEARS OLD!

    Imagine if someone - a child, perhaps - had purchased and read this book thinking that Tolstoy was the next Danielle Steel or Dean Koontz. Who if not the Consumerist will protect us from this chicanery?

    Bravo Consumerist, bravo. Stay ever vigilant in your watchtowers. We need you more than ever.

    *self facepalm*

    OK, whether subby meant to do that or not, I am definitely an idiot. Feel free to pile on.

    I'm outraged, OUTRAGED, I say, that Target is adding to the decline in public morality by stocking on its bookshelves supposed "literature" such Anna Karenina, which is little more than a handbook of adultery and its consequences, namely suicidal behaviour.

    For shame, Target, for shame.
  • Wait...some $8 per hour Target employee miscategorized a book???

  • No thanks, I'll wait for the movie.
  • While the categorization of Tolstoy as an "emerging author" is certainly curious, I don't think it is a big deal.

    In fact, I am incredibly pleased that great works of fiction are finding their way to theaters with increasing regularity, and with them, an increased demand for the novels from which the movies stem. More reading of the classics! Bully!

  • "Emerging" is pretty high on the list of words that suggest that a stupid, imitative person has been sent to university. It's about on a par with the Jesus fish decals for warning you off a person with which you are unlikely to have pleasant or productive conversation.

    That said, I'm off to transgress the patriarchy's hegemony and action an emergent paradigm -- with my butt.
  • "War and Peace" was originally titled "War! What is it Good For?".
  • The idea that Target is full of idiots, however, does need to be brought up and mocked as often as possible.
  • Subby who bought this also bought Le Dernier jour d'un condamné (The Last Day of a Condemned Man)
  • Wow! I can move books to the wrong shelves and take photos, too! Do I get a greenlight or a brief web mention?
  • Valjean! At last! We see each other plain!

  • Tolstoy didn't write Les Miserable, dumbassmitter. That was Alexandre Dumas.

  • The Fail tag works twice here.

    Noice!

    What's really scary is that you're watching "Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog" late in 2012. And you call yourself a basement-dwelling, no-life Farker! If that were true, you'd have seen this, like I did, 30 seconds after it came out! Why, you probably have a job, and possibly even a girlfriend! Begone!

    A friend of mine gave me the Dr Horrible book today. He picked it up at a book sale for a buck. Spoooooky :)

    Actually I was checking myself for correct lyrics while posting My Eyes in tandem with a depressed friend on facebook.
