it was amazing
Recommended for: absolutely everyone

This is a masterpiece! It's a very gripping read, and has fantastic characters drawn with great skill and economy. The heroine, Eugenie Grandet, is one of Balzac's feminine models of virtue and a deeply sympathetic character. There is plenty of rivalry, plotting & scheming and a touching love story - all the elements of a great book...
