The text uses the 1904 translation which has occasional inelegant phrasing and a fondness for rather peculiar vocabulary (I lost count of the times a piece of furniture is described with a 'whatnot' on top of it), but the text itself is flawlessly converted and easily navigated. There are ten chapters indexed at the beginning.
There are no illustrations even though the captions are preserved, and the original translator's notes are so scanty and perversely chosen they were hardly worth including, but these are minor details.
The novel itself traces the fortunes of a young man, Frederick Moreau, as he comes of age in mid-19th century France. He is the original flaneur, the man about town, who wanders and takes in the delights and frustrations of a modern city. He longs for money, love, sex and intellectual fulfillment and is singularly ill-equipped to realize any of them. The book teems with richly textured observations and portraits of the circles he moves in.
On the whole this is a perfect example of a ebook version of a 19th century classic.

This was not a "sentimental" education, just a despicable protagnonist who wasted his life, hurt others and wasted my time in reading the book!Published 15 months ago by Marie C.
