Wonder at the mysterious sorrow of the beautiful Marquise d'Harville! Eugene Sue, a former physician and sailor, took up the pen at the same time as Dumas, Stendhal, Balzac and Hugo.
The justice Rodolph dispenses is definitely a very harsh one when viewed with modern eyes, and while it is likely to come across as little more than revenge it appears that Sue actually considered it a valid way in which to encourage repentance and rehabilitation no spoilers! The novel even spawned its own genre: If you like 19th century serial fiction this is a good bet.
There are a few unfortunate examples of info-dump chapters that come across or did to me as a bit heavy-handed in technique, and one bizarre example of Sue spoilering a mystery with an authorial aside that seemed completely unnecessary to me. Apr 05, Sylvester rated it liked it Shelves: Eugene Sue was a wildly popular serial writer in his day - I find serial writers like Dickens compelling because they wrote for the everyday person not just the elite of their time.
This brought them popularity, yes, and influence too. This novel shed light on the plight of the poor of Paris in a manner not easily dismissed. I like to think of the readers waiting breathlessly for the next installment of the story.

I was hoping for something in the Hugo, Balzac, or Dumas line - a gritty adventur Eugene Sue was a wildly popular serial writer in his day - I find serial writers like Dickens compelling because they wrote for the everyday person not just the elite of their time. I was hoping for something in the Hugo, Balzac, or Dumas line - a gritty adventure, lots of drama, high highs and lowly hovels, good vs evil with a lot of chiarascuro-like contrasts - and I do think there was a little of all that in it, yes, maybe not with the same force or potency of the aforementioned authors - but really, not bad at all.
I wouldn't call it picaresque exactly, but it borders on the genre, and that can only help it in my opinion. Of course, this is only the 1st Volume, and I've been left hanging as to what might happen next! A little suspense is good for the heart. View all 4 comments. Non era il suo momento Mar 07, Esther rated it liked it Shelves: Je comprends pourquoi on a dit que les Parisiens attendaient la fin de ce feuilleton avant de mourir.
Felt labored by the end though. Probably just a difference in cultural expectations now vs the period it was written. Feb 15, Nadine rated it it was amazing Shelves: Il m'a tellement plu que je compte bien enregistrer les tomes suivants.
