Quite readable despite its age. Perhaps a little heavy handed on the moralizing, which however was part of books that sold well in that era. Worth reading for the working out of the downfalls of ordinary weak persons.

Format: Kindle Edition
I continue to be enchanted by Balzac's observation of life and his fantastically detailed scene-setting. This book is part of his masterful La Comedie Humaine and destined to be one of my favorites.

Starting with the rigid, religious upbringing of two sisters whose every youthful inclination is damped down by an odious mother, the reader follows these innocents as they marry and are exposed to a social milieu of which they never dreamed, much less encountered.

Portraits of conniving women, duplicitous men and general all-round scheming are part of the plot; we watch as one sister embarks on a self-destructive flirtation with a somewhat pretentious "bad-boy" character. People's feelings, motivations and feelings are examined under a microscope and presented for the reader's edification.

We witness women's manipulations, subterfuge, revenge, shallow relationships and coquetry. We see characters being set up for a fall as they get drawn farther into the web of play-acting and deceit. The characters are described with remarkable insight. One of my favorite quotes seemed to sum up the story's intent: "A violent and successful passion takes a great deal of space in an ordinary life."
