Father Goriot

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


One of the most touching and heartbreaking stories ever written, Father Goriot is considered by many to be a classic and is one of Balzac's most enduring works.

Customer Reviews

A sad tale.

Well, if it weren't so true, about so many families, it would be fiction, but it is fact. Not a happy read, but so informative about French culture in the early 1800's and the emotions and the recounting of feelings, integrity, lack thereof, etc. and parricide is as much true today. I recommend the book.
