Overview

An Historical Mystery by Honore de Balzac

An Historical Mystery
Honoré de Balzac

This exciting romance is full of stirring interest and is distinguished by that minute analysis of character in which its eminent author excelled. The characters stand boldly out from the surrounding incidents and with a fidelity as wonderful as it is truthful. Plot and counterplot follow each other with marvellous rapidity, and around the exciting days when Napoleon was First Consul, and afterward when he was Emperor, a mystery is woven in which some royalists are concerned that is concealed with masterly ingenuity until the novelist sees fit to take his reader into his confidence.

Too many ocr typos.

One of those stories which is frustratingly real in that it tells a story of the human pettiness, selfishness, and injustice that destroys even the noblest of people, and reminds us that not everyone gets a happy ending. A bit hard to read at times, not only because of scattered typos and odd characters, but also because the style is a little dry and wordy and convoluted -- very much a French novel of the nineteenth century. If that's not your cup of tea, well, you have no one to blame but yourself if you read it anyway and don't enjoy it.
