Balzac isn't something for everyone. He writes very descriptive, very philosophical and very excessive, that you sometimes almost loose track about the story he wants to tell, because the things he wants to say will become the focus. Nonetheless, it's a story that goes close to your heart and makes the distress of a woman, trapped in a silly marriage, understandable. The crux is, it's her own chosen destiny she needs to live through. Balzac did understand the women of his time and the peril that could await them, very well.
