Description

In a dingy apartment on the Passage du Pont-Neuf in Paris, Thérèse Raquin is trapped in a loveless marriage to her sickly cousin, Camille. The numbing tedium of her life is suddenly shattered when she embarks on a turbulent affair with her husband's earthy friend, Laurent. But their passion for each other soon compels the lovers to commit a crime that will haunt them forever.

Thérèse Raquin caused a scandal when it appeared in 1867 and brought its 27-year-old author a notoriety that followed him throughout his life. Zola's novel is not only an uninhibited portrayal of adultery, madness, and ghostly revenge but also a devastating exploration of the darkest aspects of human existence.

Critiques

"Zola's gritty portrayal of his eponymous central character Thérèse [is] a brilliantly radical departure from the simpering female prototypes of Victorian convention." ( Los Angeles Times)

Kill the Sound Effects

I woulod have enjoyed this book alot more if the narrator had simply read the text and not attempted to create voices for the characters - the efforts at this were really hokey, and please, the sound effects (simply awful)

A great listen

I have enjoyed the book and narrator both. This is the first Emile Zola I have ever read (although saw Germinal in the cinema). 19-century writers knew their job.
