Many people (among them Henry James) have considered Balzack to be the greatest of all novelist. Eugenie Grandet, his spare, classical story of a girl whose life is blighted by her father's hysterical greed, goes a long way to justifying that opinion.

someone asked me which of Balzac's novels I would recommend for her reading club to read together, and this was the one I chose. someone last night asked who I thought was the greatest writer of all, and I chose Balzac. He beats all the great ones, the Russians, the Germans, the English, the Scottish, the English, the Japanese, the Chinese, the Croations, the Americans, and on and on and on......... this one might not be the best novel he ever wrote, but for a women's reading club, I think it works just fine.
