Alexandre Dumas is my 2nd favorite author of all time - I can't put his books down - they are too much fun!
Как и во многих других произведениях Дюма, здесь присутствует сильная и душещипательная концовка. Самым большим недостатком романа "Графиня де Шарни" является попытка автора объединить под одной обложкой художественное произведение и историческую хронику.
Ce dernier tome du cycle des Mémoires d'un Médecin sert de conclusion à la saga. C'est la fin du règne de Louis XVI et le début de la république. C'est aussi dans ce livre que l'on apprend le destin tragique de beaucoup des personnages du livre.

La Comtesse de Charny est beaucoup plus dans l'historique que de la fiction. Je dois avouer que j'en ai beaucoup appris sur la révolution française et les débuts de la Terreur grâce à ce roman de Dumas. J'en ai beaucoup appris surtout sur Marie-Antoinette
I love Alexandre Dumas for his almost intimate knowledge of history, and his ability to make you intimate with it as well. He brings historical figures to life, as people. This is the story of the royal family in the last days of the monarchy of France and the struggles of the people on every side, and more than there historical struggle, their personal struggles as well.
I don't like this book, it it to long, 2 volumes with 600 pages each other. It was very boring, I couldn't finished it. I feel so disapointed, because Dumas books are awesome but this book was so painful to read. So I said to myself if I don't like a book I can't read it until the end, so I have to start a new one that speaks to me.

Ok, the plot was good , but the author insisted to much on details, pages of details . This book have some parts that are very hard to read, those parts are like hic
As it is often the case for Dumas' novels, most versions referenced on Goodreads are abridged versions.
This novel covers the French Revolution until the dead of Louis XVI. Many pages are devoted to the description (with some minor inaccuracies though) of historical facts, leaving little place to the novel itself.
Местами весьма занимательно, местами скучновато и затянуто. Не лучшее, но далеко и не худшее произведение Дюма.
