Quite good and similar to Zola's Nana in many ways, although, good storytellers as they were, neither Dumas Papa or Dumas Fils were in Zola's league.

What happens to the pretty girl who trades off her looks for money when she is past her sell-by date? Then she has to hope the man who always loved her will stump up the cash she needs so badly despite her constant rejection when she was at the top of the game and judged him too poor to supply her with the luxuries she felt entitled to. And hope he

غادة الكاميليا وجمال غادة الكاميليا . روايه تخرجك من مزاج سئ وواقع اسود . روايه تضحك وتبكيك . تسعدك وتحزنك . روايه تمثل البساطه والعنف . تمثل الحلم والواقع . كل ذلك واكثر فى خليط مميز يسحرك ويجبرك على السمو والعظمه . شعور رائع بعد قرائتها

غادة الكامليا هي من تلك الروايات التي تستحق وصف (الرواية الطفرة) ففيها ترى قصة فريدة في حينها , وتندمج فيها وتعشقها , هي رواية عن الحب , عن ذلك الشعور اللإرادي الذي ينتابنا تجاه أشخاص قد لا تربطنا بهم أي صلة , هي رواية تحبها وتحب شخوصها.

I wish people could still express themselves the way they do in the classics.
After I got a few chapters in, I really couldn't put this book down, which is unusual for me, for the genre. The story is such a train wreck of emotion and life that that must be why it pulls the heartstrings of so many people. It is all so raw.
I liked the author's choice to make it a story told by Armond after the fact, so he was remembering it exactly, but could see it all in a big picture view, the beginning, and w

Qué librazo. Reúne todas las condiciones que debe tener un libro para dejarme con un humor particular (tristeza, enojo o lo que sea): una buena historia, escritura impecable, personajes vibrantes y un final medianamente impredecible. Alexandre Dumas (no confundir con el padre, el autor de Los tres mosqueteros ) se luce, casi que se pavonea, con este libro. Y es que, a pesar de que la historia parecía ponerse pesada por momentos, había algo que no me permitía quejarme. Realmente me interesaba lo ...more

This is the tragic story of the life of a courtesan, Marguerite Gautier (dubbed Camille or Lady of the Camellias for her always carrying a bouquet of the flowers), who, by willing sacrifice that could never have rewarded her in kind, proved her purity of love. It is also a lamentable apologetic story told by Armand Duval, the man who sworn love for her but judged her too harshly, too unwisely, and painfully abandoned her.

In the opening of the story, the narrator chances upon the auction

La Dame aux Camélias is a beautiful novel about the tragic character of Marguerite, inspired by women that Alexandre Dumas fils knew in real life and his own tragedy of losing his mother very young. He was an illegitimate child of Marie-Laure-Catherine Labay and novelist Alexandre Dumas. His father took him very young from his mother because the law allowed that, which inspired him to write about tragic female characters.

Marguerite is a tragic, vulnerable and heroic character we follow through h

How do you suppose the kept women in Paris could live in the style they do, if they had not three or four lovers at once?

It's very easy to see how this book translates so perfectly into opera (La Traviata) as every emotion is heightened: lovers weep, obsess, throw dramatic hissy fits, swoon and, ultimately, die beautifully.

Along the way, though, Dumas fils anchors all the emotion through the dispassionate accounts of the economics of a courtesan: we learn precisely how much Marguerite needs

I love Camille and I can't recommend it enough. It's become one of my favorite books. I had seen the Greta Garbo movie version of Camille and I can honestly say that the novel is more heartbreaking. Alexandre Dumas fils's writing was excellent and his tale of thwarted love is timeless.

Camille is set in 1840s Paris. A young courtesan, Marguerite Gautier, has died and although she was once the most sought-after courtesan in Paris she died of consumption without any of her rich friends or benefact
