My major complaint with the series is the layout of the Table of Contents. You have to weed through each novel, THEN all of the chapters in it as well. It's not enough that Balzac was a prolific writer, but some of these novels have 50 or more chapters, so it takes FOREVER to get to a particular book, or to any of the shorter works at the end. It would have been better to have a link to each work, then a link to chapters within it when you get to that book. That's the way a certain other "complete works" publisher does it, and it works extraordinarily well.
I have read and enjoyed most of Balzac's major works, and this collection will be a convenient way to dip into the remainder.
(I purchased the Kindle version, after checking other reviews reported no typographical errors etc)
I love the way Balazac gives you an insight into French life in those times. He covers the trials and tribulations of all levels of society, the rise and fall of people and families as they negotiate the complicated social obstacle course of life in those times.
For anyone who hasn't read French Literature Balzac is an excellent place to start.
Easy to read but also educational in understanding France and the french of that period. I read a story or two, then read something else before coming back to them for light relief.
