People with different personalities are discussing about the perfect woman. Balzac depicts the different portraits of perfect woman in subtle, elegant and absorbing way. Very interesting book!

Very interesting. There were some parts I didn't understand, and some I found boring. But, over all a very interesting book. I thought it would be an easy read.
