Thanks for telling us about the problem. La rovina di una famiglia borghese a causa dell’ambizione smodata di un uomo.

Things start to go wrong once the priest starts to mingle amongst the neighbours and slowly turn the town against the Mourets. As much reading “the fortune of the Rougon” was a little painful, or at least winded, so I devoured this psycho-political thriller Machiavellian, very rhythmic in short chapters, fascinated by the dull rise of violence it deploys more than electoral machinations and petty power struggles that serve as background to the novel, I iced my spine to follow the piece that is played between the main characters, the Mouret couple sacrificial victims, and Faujas, spectral manipulator; how it gradually takes possession of their home, their garden, their property, their social circles and their lives really cold in the back!


This book, if compared to the series so far, was a light read with easy writing. I love Zola’s works to begin with – especially the Rougon-Macquart series – but this has to be one of my favorites.

Although the novel does assume in its readers a degree of familiarity with the battle between clerical political interests and governmental influence in the lw towns of the Second Empire – knowledge which Zola’s contemporary readers would certainly have taken for granted, but which seems obscure and almost arcane now – its strength lies not in its politics but in its human drama.

But even they, in their machinations, could never have gone this far. This is my 4th.

As ever, Zola gives you plenty to dislike in the characters. No matterit fills in some of the blanks in the chronicle of the Rougon-Macquart family–a sequence I’ve read in rather piecemeal fashion. Hope your weekend is going well.


I’m already pretty used to Zola’s style of introducing a bunch of characters you can’t keep track of so I didn’t let that get to me. In Mouret’s absence, and Marthe’s indifference, Faujas unscrupulous sister Olympe and brother in law Trouche take over the Mouret’s house, and live high at their expense.

This is an excellent book! The self-proclaimed leader of French naturalism, Zola’s works inspired operas such as those of Gustave Charpentier, notably Louise in the s.

While there might not be any huge surprises, I wasn’t able to see the turns of plot in the last of the novel. The topic didn’t require anything more and flow was at a nice pace.

I still hear the low base rumbling in my skull.
