Really boring. The story covers a period of about one hundred years in France, from the time of the Sun King, through the French Revolution, the rise and fall of Napoleon's Empire and the restoration of the monarchy, following the falls and fortunes of the Busson family, master glass-blowers and engravers by trade. That family was messed up and I did not feel any real sympathy for any of the characters, especially once they all assisted in the Revolution and supported those madmen of the Tribunal. And nothing really happens. It is one of those novels that I hate to read because by the end I have gained nothing from it.
