Kort biografi
Eugéne Sue, French novelist, was born in Paris on the 26th of January 1804. He was the son of a distinguished surgeon in Napoleon's army, and is said to have had the empress Josephine for godmother. Sue himself acted as surgeon both in the Spanish campaign undertaken by France in 1823 and at the battle of Navarino (1828). In 1829 his father's death put him in possession of a considerable fortune, and he settled in Paris. His naval experiences supplied much of the materials of his first novels, which were composed at the height of the romantic movement of 1830. He was strongly affected by the Socialist ideas of the day, and these prompted his most famous works: "Les Mystères de Paris" and "Le Juif errant", which were among the most popular specimens of the _roman-feuilleton_. He followed these up with some singular and not very edifying books: "Les Sept péchés capitaux," which contained stories to illustrate each sin, "Les Mystères du peuple," which was suppressed by the censor in 1857, and several others, all on a very large scale, though the number of volumes gives an exaggerated idea of their length. Some of his books, among them "Le Juif errant" and "Le Mystéres de Paris," were dramatized by himself, usually in collaboration with others. His period of greatest success and popularity coincided with that of Alexandre Dumas, with whom some writers have put him on an equality. Sue has neither Dumas's wide range of subject, nor, above all, his faculty of conducting the story by means of lively dialogue; he has, however, a command of terror which Dumas seldom or never attained. From the literary point of view his style is bad, and his construction prolix. After the revolution of 1848 he sat for Paris (the Seine) in the Assembly from April 1850, and was exiled in consequence of his protest against the _coup d'état_ of the 2nd of December 1851. This exile stimulated his literary production, but the works of his last days are on the whole much inferior to those of his middle period. Sue died at Annecy (Savoy) on the 3rd of August 1857.



ok- i only read Book 1 (of how many books- maybe 12)? but that was hundreds of pages (?). I say "read" i mean "listened to" - via LibriVox with so many different readers - a new one for most chapters. What a great story! Maybe not up to Dumas, but that is as high as it goes, no? Our protag - a mysterious man in the shadows, saves a poor woman from being man handled by a roustabout in the initial scene. Turns out our protag is an extraordinary fighter (!) as the roustabout acknowledges (as he is not too shabby himself). These 3 characters will be launched in this way to a varied adventure - they're all great and a bit of 3 musketeers about them. The protag is a secret nobleman from some place in Germany but out to do good with his influence, money and fisticuffs- so a bit of a super hero story. But so well told. I will read more, but chose to move on for now.… (mer)
