In lines 97-98 it says, "He went to the window and threw it wide open.  There was not one star in the sky. He went back and sat down by the table."  What was the author's purpose in pointing out that there weren't any stars?
to let you know that the sky was dark and the night was dark and eery and there was no one around him and he was alone

I think he blew out the candle beause it reminded him of the Bishop's and his conversation. Valjean didn't want the candle to bring up his conscience and lean towards a decision for him. The candle made him think of his commitment towards God and doing the right thing.

In line 72 it says, "A momment later he blew out his candle.  It bothered him."  No one knew his real identity.  He was in his apartment, which wouldn't be strange to anyone out that late.  So why did he blow the candle out?  Give it some thought and develop some insight into what he was going through.
I think that Jean Valjean blew out the candle because noone knew his true identity so he blew out the candle so noone would ever find out

that the option should be clear as the sky as it is at the time but hes leaning twards the wrong choice.

i think he blew the candle out because the candle resembled his identity and when he blew it out that was him saying if i just keep quiet i wont go to jail.
Read my post and then u will understand ;D

I think that the reason he blew the candle out is every time he looked at the flame it reminded him of the bishop& how he was suppose to change his ways . ;D

The author is saying that he hasn`t done one good thing but may have done some nice but not good.

i think that he was trying to hide from the world because he is not going to do the right thing.

Well if he opened the window and there was not a star in site that means that God is trying to tell Valjean that he will go to hell anyways even if he tells Javert who he is or not.

I think that the author pointed that out for one reason, if Valjean keeps his mouth shut and lets the other guy take the blame, he will go to hell and have nothing to look forward to. Not even the stars in the sky.
