Better than Play, Opera, or Movie

This is an amazing and beautiful book. I had read the play and seen the opera and the movie, and liked them all, but I was still surprised how much I liked this book. This was intense and captivating. The structure of the novel is wonderful, with the end at the beginning (which would have been too intense at the end) then transitioning narrator and the beginning of the story then culminating powerfully. It is quite rare that a novel gets me to cry, but this one sure did (even though I knew the story). Even if you didn't like the play, opera or movie, I would still recommend this wonderful novel. The narration is pretty close to perfect, with multiple actors doing a great job with the challenging and emotional characterizations.

The Most Beautiful Written Story Ever Told

Any additional comments?

I read this book when I was 13 and I fell in love with it ever since. This story has touched my heart tremendously and my view on certain things has changed forever.Now I’ve read this book many times, the story has become too familiar to me of all the details. When it ends each time, it almost feels like it never ended. Because it was so beautifully written, I didn’t want it to end. So I began reading it all over again. This story is still and still will be my favorite of all time. It’s a tragic story but a story that affects millions. Marguerite Gautier is the most beautiful woman I’ve ever imagined, and her story with Armand Duval was truly romantic, but painful and heart wrenching. Her short life and tragic death often makes me sad. And I often think about Alexandre Dumas fils, under which circumstances this story was written, his emotions and feelings at the time … and “Marie Duplessis” the real Lady of the Camellias, what’s the story behind her.

Sad, but lovely

Great narration. The story itself was simple, yet very touching. I don't think time can ever change such a classic love story. You can see the same thing happen now, on television or perhaps in real life.
