Una de las novelas mas impresionantes de su ciclo La comedia humana, y considerada por muchos como su obra maestra, en Eugenia Grandet, Balzac pinto un retrato inolvidable y elocuente de un avaro a quien nada le importa ni tiene escrupulo alguno con alguien, ni siquiera con su hija, con tal de aumentar sus riquezas. Las maquinaciones del viejo miserable y la forma como destruye una serie de vidas, incluso la de su hija Eugenia, conforma un profundo estudio psicologico, ademas de una novela apasionante que en ningun momento pierde su interes. Junto con el personaje Moliere, esta descripcion de una de las mas desafortunadas taras humanas, ocupa lugar destacado dentro de la literatura.

Eugenie Grandet portrays the fall of the Grandet household. In its record of financial acuity, the vicissitudes of the wine trade, and the social and economic consequences of the Revolution, we find a vigorous fictional document of the age.

    " I cant believe I happened to chance buying this book at a closing down sale. Why haven't I seen it on any of the must read classics book lists? I loved this book. If you love your classics you must read this. "

    " Loved the book just as much the second time around, although I'm sure my feelings about Eugenie's circumstances and fate are much more sober and a lot less romantic. Still, I remember now why I loved Eugenie so much the first time I read the book as a teenager. "

    " It isn't often I want to give a book 5 stars, but Balzac's writing has endured and is as fresh and relevant today as it was when the ink had barely dried on the page of his manuscript. Although the setting, rural France, may be a part of history now, the motives and behavior of we humans has not changed. This is a wonderful study of avarice, manipulation, and family dynamics. Balzac does not disappoint his readers. "

    " Sad, but beautiful and funny and honest, as Balzac has always been to me. I love how authentic his portrayals of people are; how true it is that we are often just solely motivated by money. "
