Format: Paperback
Au Bonheur des Dames is the story of an orphaned young girl Denise. She moves to Paris with her younger siblings to live with her uncle and aunt and immediately is enthralled with the lights and the beauty of the city. She begins work in the store Au Bonheur des Dames and falls in love with its propriator. The novel is a love story but also examines the perpetual battle between the old and the new ways of living. The store Au Bonheur des Dames sells a variety of products while the store of Denise's family is simply a clothing store. Zola's novel is before its time. It accurately describes a social issue of today, the bigger commercial store taking over the small, personalized store.

Although a well-made book, beware that this is an abridged version of the story. Good references in the book and notes. Helpful insights with questions at the end of each chapter.

This is a very abridged version of the original, too abridged for my purposes, who wanted to read the whole thing

Una novela excelente. Fácil de leer para los que estamos aprendiendo francés como lengua extrangera. Entretenida y atrayente, narra una historia de amor envuelta en el contexto del advenimiento del capitalismo y la creación de las tiendas de gran superficie. Un francés y una ambientación dignos de Zolá.

C'est une histoire tres interesant. Zola nous emmenent a la fin du XIXem cielcle et il nous montre la vie d'une vendeuse de nouveautes a Paris, la fin du "vieux commerce" et le debout du "nouveau commerce"
