A Critical Review — The Lost Illusions
The Lost Illusions — a book that you must not omit. This outstanding novel, about a young man named Lucjan de Rubempre, written by one of the best French writers — Honore de Balzac, is an obligatory one in your library.
The author intended to show what dirty mechanisms ruled the great, big world in Paris in the 19th century — and he surely succeeded. The main idea of the book could be expressed very well by – today’s singer Annie Lennox,
Some of them want to use you,
Some of them want to be abused
The above shows that Balzac is not an obsolete writer. His production is still alive, and people will always „abuse”. That is why this book is so very valuable.
