Jan 28, Guy Cranswick rated it it was ok. While it is celebrated, and brought to Balzac the woman who would eventually be his wife, it is rather a strain. The book’s prose is somewhat like sitting next to a chronic bore on a long flight who pontificates endlessly in an orotund voice spouting superficial apothegms.
It is also quite similar to the voice over narrations of Hollywood movies d the s and 40s where simple facts are given in flowery and august syntax, dear reader.

Balzac is nonor funnier and more entertaining than he is here.
The Magic Skin by Honoré de Balzac
Mar 22, Pedro Aquino rated it really liked it. Oct 26, Naoufelix rated it it was amazing. I read his book a long time ago during my It was probably one of the most catching book i read.
Balzac’s writing may be seen as a very descriptive view, in my opinion he is perfectly describing the landscape of the mind.
A book that I highly recommend to get an other perception of life, human’s eternal desire, love, and religion.
