This translation didn't have any breaks in the text when the scene and the characters changed. So it was a bit confusing to start with. Also it might be a good idea to know something of French history just post Napoleon. Well, they are all a cynical snobbish arrogant bunch of hypocrites. But our hero, the low-born and barely likeable Julien, outperforms them all. Wonderful prose.

Not what I expected but eminently readable and worthwhile. Not much seemed to be happening but you cared about the people and wanted to know what came next. A good analysis of French society around the 1830s. Not that you need to know anything about the historical period.

But what I expected. Unless you know a little about the history of the period it can be a little tedious. However, today it is valuable for its political and social background.

I liked the book but not Scott Moncrieff's translation from the French. It gives a good picture of provincial life in France at that time.
