Book II: May 31- June 7: Ch. 1-15

So far, I read up to chapter eleven. Julien is living in Paris as secretary to an attorney there. I must mention that there is quit a bit of historical facts being mentioned through out this part of the text. I wanted to note this because if there is ever another chance to read this book again, I want to look for some of these names and date mentioned.

Book I: May 22-30: Ch.22-30

M. Renal gets an anonomyous letter telling him that his wife has been unfaithful with the childrens tutor. Madame Renal tries to make the actuzation look redicqlouse by having julien dismissed from their employe. At this point julien is reguarded as a hero. In the begining chapters he is regarded as a villian. I'm to far in the reading to make the distinction between the two, so I'll make a note of it here.
