Please consider donating to: This book, if compared to the series so far, was a light read with easy writing. The hypocrisy of the clergy, social status, vicious gossip and the descent into madness and its consequences are just a few of the themes that drive this tale of human frailty and ambition. This book does seem to show that politics never change. I’m not sure what was worse – reading the kindle version of it in a 20 book download, the multitude of characters and my losing who is who, the fact that it’s book 4 and having enjoyed later ones means this earlier work is less polished.

Although the novel does assume in its readers a degree of familiarity with the battle between clerical political interests and governmental influence in the provincial 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 conquetw its politics but in plassahs human drama.
