really liked it

This was the first Balzac that I read. I, in haste, thought I would hate it, but I ended up really liking it. I think it's so good because Balzac really makes the reader feel the frustration with the father who is such a miser. And we also feel sympathy for Eugenie... she's naive, but sweet and, in my opinion, a fairly likable character. After having read this, I will definitely read more Balzac.
