Somewhere within the spectrum occupied by anything from Romeo and Juliet to Tromeo and Juliet, there is a well trodden path full of whispers, whimpers and piercing screams about the miseries of the love process Whether you are tragically in love with your enemy s hottie boomdottie tween daughter or banging your best friend s girlfriend in an alleyway behind a bar all 2 minute meal style, Jonathan Richman had it almost exactly right when he explained to his soon to be adoring fans that true love [...]

The Arcade of the Pont Neuf is not a place for a stroll You take it to make a short cut, to gain a few minutes It is traversed by busy people whose sole aim is to go quick and straight before them The arcade now assumes the aspect of a regular cut throat alley Great shadows stretch along the tiles, damp puffs of air enter from the street Anyone might take the place for a subterranean gallery indistinctly lit up by three funeral lamps.This nineteenth century French novel has a deliciously dark at [...]
Usually when I review a book I try to allot the stars not by the audiobook s narration but by the author s words and content With this book I am awarding four stars but it is partially due to Kate Winslet s fantastic narration She is as you must know a famous actress I strongly believe I would never have been able to imagine the words with the terror and emotion evoked through her reading She does a fantastic job In addition, I would have been furious if at every mention of Camille s name it had [...]
Un callej n inmundo de humedad y mugre por el que los transe ntes pasan apresurados para acortar camino sirve de marco a esta novela que inicia la corriente del Naturalismo Escrita por un joven Zola veintea ero, sorprende su temprana maestr a Th r se Raquin es un excelente estudio psicol gico.Esta obra es una clara muestra de que para escribir un trabajo magistral, no hacen falta m s que unos pocos personajes y una extensi n abarcable.Se me hace dif cil elaborar esta rese a sin incurrir en spoil [...]
and here i thought thomas hardy was cruel to his characters this book doesnt take long to turn into slow torture for crimes committed, and it gets darker and dramatic until it reaches the heights of opera vengeance its very tempting as a modern reader to question the characters motivations why not just leave really just leave but it was high time i read a zola, and i can continue my summer of missed classics with confidence.

This book is alive From the first to the last I saw the story came to life and I was drawn so completely in It made my heart beat a little faster, and even now I have put the book down, slept and lived through another day, it is still in my head and my heart.On one hand the story is utterly modern and it is timeless It would be so easy to reset in in any period since it was published, and equally easy to take it back through the centuries.Because this is a story of humanity Of what people may do [...]
I Love Nature Natural, but No More Novels of NaturalismIn my voracity for reading most of the so called classic novels, I read this short one without knowing much about it, nor did I read until later the preface in which Zola says this is a study of temperaments and not characters, the basis of which is the now discounted Galen s Four Temperaments Apparently, this is a novel characterized as naturalism, due to its scientific or detached narrative.The four temperaments are represented by Therese [...]
Faltou pouco para come ar a arrancar os cabelos enquanto ia lendo Teresa Raquin Zola escreveu esta hist ria com uma intensidade que n o deixa lugar para momentos de leitura descontra da Da primeira ltima p gina, o livro mant m um clima de ang stia que nos suga para dentro daquelas almas atormentadas Odiamo los pela sua falta de car cter e humanidade, enquanto manipulam, mentem e enganam todos sua volta Executam friamente um crime, ao qual escapam impunemente escapam lei dos homens, n o escapam c [...]
I read this book with morbid fascination, following with horror the deterioration of the sanity of the two main characters, Therese and Laurent It s not a pleasant book to read Quite the opposite Zola wrote this book for men, not women He didn t intend it to be regarded as a novel which he considered to be for women, not men but as an objective study of human behaviour which he likened to that of beasts Knowing this, it s easy to read it as if we are watching two laboratory rats rather than huma [...]
Very scary, very dark and definitely wonderful Could not put this down I learned about evil in this book.
Due matrimoni e tre funeraliQuattro personaggi in questa storia incolore di Emil Zol Teresa e Camillo, che poi si sposano, e la madre e un amico di Camillo, Lorenzo Quattro personaggi insoddisfatti, scialbi e con aspettative limitate che sopravvivono a fatica in una Parigi cinerea, umida e disattenta.La trama in s semplice e abbastanza scontata Teresa sposa Camillo senza un perch , Camillo sposa Teresa alla ricerca di una vita tranquilla Teresa e Lorenzo diventano amanti per caso ma con una cari [...]
Superb Reading Zola surely sets the bar I d say he is the French Hardy but although they are both masters of their art and certainly like to dwell in the downer side of town, Zola deals with the city and the impact of the immediate environment and people on the psyche of the individual which isn t really an area that Hardy greatly concentrates on Of course I ve yet to read a lot of Zola so I could be wrong but going on the fact that he seems to be acknowledged as the trailblazer of the Human Nat [...]
Therese Raquin is not a very good novel It does, however, have some very interesting parts If you are a fan of noir fiction, you will easily pick up on some classic elements of the genre two loser lovers, a weak and whiney husband, a cast of additional characters that you also don t like, and an increasingly oppressive atmosphere that blinks No Exit For the first half of the book, all these elements mix nicely or nastily Therese Raquin, who is part north African, is, as a child, abandoned by her [...]
Th r se Raquin is Dostoyevsky s re imagination of Macbeth, channeled through mile Zola.Its a claustrophobic tale of murder and adultery that sets the scene for many modern French Romance novels to come Taking the simplicity of the plot into consideration, I was pleasantly surprised by how engrossing the narrative was.
Volela bih kada bih mogla da napi em neki duga ak i pametan review ove knjige, ali neka mi bude izgovor to to nabadam po androidu.U malost malogra anskog ivota ra a dosadu koja gu i neuta ene strasti Ovo dovodi do preljube, preljuba dovodi do ubistva, a ubistvo do potpunog sloma dvoje ljubavnika, koji, umesto da u ivaju u potpunoj slobodi, na kraju bivaju uni teni me usobnim optu bama, krivicom, paranojom, pa i mr njom.Umesto do pokajanja, dolazi do sebi ne elje za to jednostavnijim begom iz pak [...]
Lo que se supon a iba a ser un largo barbecho a la literatura de mile Zola 1840 1902 , tan s lo qued en 10 escasos d as, pero suficientes para obtener otra riqu sima cosecha Al hilo de esa gran obra llamada Germinal , que me ha impresionado muy gratamente, no pude resistir iniciar otra de las narraciones de este autor La elegida fue Th r se Raquin que contiene un argumento por dem s sugestivo, a la vez que espinoso Como se sabe, a mile Zola se le considera el padre del Naturalismo , corriente li [...]
Zola s preface to the second edition of this novel, which is included in the audiobook version I listened to, confirms that the work caused quite a sensation when it was first published in 1867 In the preface, Zola defends himself against charges of obscenity and states that the novel is in effect a detached and scientific study of the effect of temperament While I m not sure just how scientific and detached Zola really was, he was certainly scientific and detached enough for the novel to be reg [...]
E da cinque stelle solamente la scena finale, con una tragica e maestosa Madame Raquin che si erge su Th r se e Laurent come un angelo vendicatore o come un Cristo sul trono pronto a dividere i peccatori dai salvati Nel romanzo per non ci sono peccatori e angeli, buoni e cattivi, ci sono soltanto, come dice Zola, bestie umane e niente pi , Th r se, Laurent e Camille Non solo la descrizione delle loro pulsioni pi profonde e del loro animo amorale cruda e spoglia di qualsiasi abbellimento, ma anch [...]
The shortest and most readable books from the 20 vol Rougon Macquart cycle but perhaps not the best one to start with Germinal gives the full heavy, 19th C saga with issues flavour of Zola.
Zola Zola Zola.Will we ever go through a novel of yours without someone being murdered, attempted to be murdered, or at least plotted to be No, I am not complaining, it does not feel repetitive at all, at least not in a negative way.What we see here is typical gritty and savage prose by Zola Two lovers find themselves in a sticky situation Forbidden love with a married lady, spouse to your own friend You can easily see how this sets it up for a great psychological suspense novel with an increasi [...]

Therese Raquin is Madame Bovary on steroids The young Zola was impressed by Bovary, and its influence is clear throughout Raquin but he ratchets every aspect of the story up, for better andwell, mostly for worse this isn t as good as Bovary.Mainly that s because Zola is no match at all for Flaubert psychologically Bovary is as trenchant a view inside the human brain as I ve read outside Tolstoy laser focused and brilliant Zola, by contrast, is muddling about with some almost Medieval notions of [...]
I had to read this book for school this trimester and it was actually much better than I thought I would give it 3.5 stars and not 4 because I can t say that I really enjoyed this book, although it had some really good moments.The story is very dark and gloomy and it s not exactly an uplifting read Unforunately, that, with the lack of some kind of unexplainable warmth from the author, made this book very heavy for me to get through, even though the language and the vocabulary used in Th r se Raq [...]
Sometimes people die, she murmured at last Only it is dangerous for those who survive First of all, a slow clap for Kate Winslet s reading of mile Zola s Th r se Raquin I can t recommend her rendition highly enough.A loveless marriage, a turbulent affair, a crime that will haunt them forever In this novel we follow the story of Th r se, her lover Laurent s and their descent into madness following their murder of her husband Fair warning, there will be scenes of murder, physical abuse and slow ps [...]
This was my first e book the dealer gave me an iPad when I leased my car, and since I was heading out of town I decided to try it out by downloading this book, which was free I think I would ve read it a lot quicker if it had been a real book, but who wants to deal with some weird apple y screen that highlights and flips pages around when you touch it Yuck Anyway, whatever I prefer my books in book form, but in either format, this book was awesome If you re a fan of James M Cain et al it may thr [...]
