Esta novela muestra la desilusion de un joven idealista cuando todo lo que creia acaba siendo destruido. La ironia es que cuando entra a un convento de cartujo, en busca de paz, ni siquiera alli la logra. Es una obra de gran belleza, con una vision lírica del mundo.

A compelling novel of passion and daring, of prisons and heroic escape, of political chicanery and sublime personal courage.

    " I read this on the beach in Scarborough. Hardly your quintessential beach read. But I swear I was in Italy with this little hotheaded, prototypically hormone-driven angry young man in love with (who else?) a most beautiful young woman. Oh yeah. And something about Waterloo. Where else to read about Waterloo than hard against the ocean? "

    " I loved this. Brilliant writing, really funny, excellent female characters... Makes many modern novels look thin indeed. This edition is the one to buy, with a nice introduction. "

    " Somehow the romantic and royal court dramas don't really appeal to me. I would have loved for the book to a be a bit more challenging, instead it is rather boring, without actual purpose and the character development is slow if any at all. "

    " Not that great. The characters, while not being flat, are still not realistic. Fabrice (the hero) is an unmitigated bungler who is naive to the extreme. When he wants to join Napoleon's army he attempts to ask Napoleon to let him join, and that is amongst the less insane of his exploits. The only really enjoyable parts involve Fabrice's second imprisonment because Stendhal describes it so well. The political intrigues are so great in number one gets sick of them and they often hinge on the ridiculous. "

About the Author
Author Stendhal

Stendhal, the pen name of Marie-Henri Beyle (1783–1842), was a nineteenth-century French writer. Known for his acute analysis of his characters’ psychology, he is considered one of the earliest and foremost practitioners of realism in his two novels, Le Rouge et le Noir (The Red and the Black, 1830) and La Chartreuse de Parme (The Charterhouse of Parma, 1839).
