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.

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.
