The Charterhouse of Parma
Available in PDF, epub, and Kindle ebook. This book has 497 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1839; this is a translation by C. K. Scott–Moncrieff.
The Charterhouse of Parma chronicles the adventures of the young Italian nobleman Fabrice del Dongo from his birth in 1798 to his death. Fabrice spends his early years in his family's castle on Lake Como, while most of the rest of the novel is set in a fictionalized Parma. The book begins with the French army sweeping into Milan and stirring up the sleepy region of Lombardy, which was allied with Austria. Fabrice grows up surrounded by intrigues and alliances for and against the French.
