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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ginette | 1/26/2014

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nancy | 1/12/2014

    " 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. "

    " a classic that does not suck like most of them. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pauline | 12/4/2013

    " Very great book, quite pleasant to read. A successful painting of (extreme) avarice with interesting characters! Really enjoyed it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Annalisa | 11/22/2013

    " An ironic tale about greed as relevant today as it no doubt was at the time of publication in post-revolutionary France. Plus ca change. "

    " Aww this was a sweet book and i finished it really fast. a "must read from classics" "

    " Very good if you like old French literature. I do. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mashi | 11/18/2012

    " A sweet-bitter mixed novel.A girl with a pure passion to her cousin... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Neil Hodgson | 6/30/2012

    " Hugely descriptive and takes half the book to get going. The miser grandet is someone I can emphasis with, Eugenie herself is a bit of a wet blanket. A bit dull I'm afraid to say though the academics will slay me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nanar | 5/19/2012

    " quel livre magnifique ! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Adam | 2/18/2012

    " Clunky. Pere Goriot is better. Balzac likes caricatures of people, but he also likes realism, and that creates problems I think. But I liked it. The French do this "society novel" thing better than the English. Because in France it ends in tears. "

    " Very great book, quite pleasant to read. A successful painting of (extreme) avarice with interesting characters! Really enjoyed it! "

    " Avarice trumps love--Balzac is so 21st century. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Geraud | 12/12/2010

    " Balzac à Vieillit, je crois. Lecture très ennuyeuse "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jonfaith | 11/7/2010

    " No need for histrionic qualification, this was a sublime novel. "
