Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I love this because it's the story of how you can't escape the inevitabilities of love and it's just a fantastic piece of writing." —Sue Perkins, Express 

 "By merging elements of the gothic and tragic with a study of petit-bourgeois banality, Zola created a work of enduring fascination." —Observer 

 "It was attacked by critics of the day as stinking filth and a foul sewer. Little wonder, then, that it became an instant bestseller and I'll admit I was completely riveted by its melodramatics from start to finish." —Daily Mail

Meet the Author

ÉMILE ZOLA (1840-1902) is the author of Les Rougon-Macquart — a cycle of 20 novels written over a period of 22 years including Nana (1880), Germinal (1885) and The Drinking Den (1877) which provides a panoramic view of life under Napoleon III. He was the leading figure in the French school of naturalistic fiction. Zola campaigned for justice over the Dreyfus affair — 'it is up to us poets to nail the guilty to the eternal pillory' — and his open letter to the President 'J'accuse' landed him a prison sentence that he evaded only through exile in England. He is buried in the Panthéon alongside Rousseau, Victor Hugo and Alexandre Dumas.

ADAM THORPE was born in Paris in 1956. His first novel, Ulverton, was published in 1992, and he has written nine others, two collections of stories and six books of poetry — most recently Voluntary. Thorpe's translation of Madame Bovary, 'stunning and heartily recommended' (Scotsman), is available in Vintage Classics. He lives in France with his wife and family.

    Captivating!

    Zola does a superb job in the smooth moving description which engages the reader in a poetic, yet, nerve wrenching story in which a nemesis evolves into even a greater threat when slain by those whom were supposed to be at hand and most loyal. Of all novels I have read, the most foreboding state of lust could have never been conveyed clearer.

    Different

    The kindness shown to the victims mother was eerie, and I think very possible outside of fiction. Zola did a wonderful job of showing more natural complexity in his murderers than the Good Guy Bad Guy syndrome.

    Therese Raquin

    Written in 1867 Therese Raquin explores the world of adultery, obsession, and murder. Its protaganist is Therese, a lonely and passive young woman unhappily wed to her much older invalid cousin Camille. Her life is greatly altered when a stranger from Camille's past comes into her life: Laurent. Soon, Laurent and Therese start a passionate and obsessive relationship with each other resulting in murder, paranoia, and rage. The dark atmosphere and chilling characters described by Zola help to make a disturbing and exciting novel.

    Naturalism and Noir

    Anybody who thought that the dark world of noir was a twentieth century invention should read this book. Zola's nightmarish tale of greed, lust, and damnation reads like a Victorian James M. Cain. While Zola's work is quite justly classified as 'literature', this novel can also be ranked among the masterpieces of crime fiction.

    Embre's Biography

    Name - Embre Theodora Chrysanth<_>&#283<_>. <br>
    Nicknames[s] - Embre, Em, Bree, Theo, Dora the Explora, Just-Dora, Chrys, etc. Pretty much anything you can conjure up works for her. <br>
    Age - Aye . . . . Around 17-ish. <br>
    Species - Human. <br>
    Appearance <br>
    Em isn't someone people tend to notice. With curly, chocolatey hair, dimmed lapis lazuli eyes, a slim figure, and black clothing, she's the epitome of hidden. The only thing that draws attention to her is the little tiara randomly plopped on top of her curls, befit with polished chunks of sapphire and emerald. <br>
    Persona - Figger it out yerself. <br>
    History - Em came here from her curious wanderings. She travelled the world, or the parts of it she could reach. Yemen, Vietnam, Italy, Turkey, they all were explored thoroughly by herself. She loves adventure. <br>
    Other - She loves accents most of all. No one knows her normal voice, because she's always speaking in a Scottish acent or something. Whether it be Italian, Scottish, German, British, or something random, she is /never/ without an accent. <br>
    Dragon Bond - That's a no. <br>
    Friends - Noooope. <br>
    Crush - o-o Leave me alooooonnne. <br>
    Relationship Status - *le sigh* Absolutely nothing. If this is a scale from 0 to 10, 0 being liking no one in a romantic way, and 10 being ultimate romance with marriage and stuff, then she is -2. Seriously. <br>
    Favorite Song - Ehh . . . . . 'Angel With A Shotgun' by Nightcore or 'I'm Awesome' by Spose. <br>
    RPer - None other than Lin &#9788<_>!!

    Opalite~~Add-on

    Forgot to mention wings...<br>
    Her wings are disproportionately large. They are bat-like, with the "fingers" black, and the membrane a whirl of transparent neon. Thin black claws jut out the top of each wing.

    Opalite's awesome bio!

    Name: Gee, sherlock. Aren't you smart. <br>
    Nickname: NOPE. <br>
    Age: Ummm... maybe a year? Dunno. Young. <br>
    Gender: &female <br>
    Species: Dragon. To be specific, a hybrid Neo Dragon and Midnight Dragon. Or something. <br>
    Rider: The one and only, forever amazing Securan. Always.
    Description: Opalite is roughly three and a half feet tall, or a little over a yard. Her scales are mottled black and/or random neon colors, and are long, elegant, and sharp-edged. Her overall shape is rather like a coss between a horse and a lizard- longer legs and neck, lizardish paws/feet, long flexible body and tail. Her head is kind of triangular, with two long fangs curling over her bottom jaw. Beginning at the top of her head and going to the tip of her whip-like tail, long and sharp black spikes trail down. Two matching horns adorn the top of her head. Her eyes are a brilliant emerald, with vertical slits for pupils. Her claws match her spikes and horns- long, black, and sharp. A rippling white scar stretces down her left foreleg. <br>
    Persona: She used to be honest, cheerful, outgoing, and optimistic, but she's changed drastically. Go meet her. <br>
    Abilities: Breathes fire/smoke, communicates with telepathy, can glow, very limited healing capacity.<br>
    Likes: Ummmmm.... That may depend. <br>
    Dislikes: Pinerantulas, anyone who messes with her or Securan, liars, overly pessimistic people. <br>
    Favorite song: Currently? "How to Save a Life" by The Fray<br>
    Roleplayed by: None other than the awesome \Splittah|Jay/! <br>
    Other: DERP

    Demon's bio

    Name: Demon <p> Gender: female <p> Apearance: she is tiny, and completely black with bat-like wings and dark purple eyes that have no pupil. The majority of her body is like a ghost, and she floats in a way, front legs only apearing once in a while. She has no horns and her wings don't really flap, she just floats around and is very quiet and very quick. Look up 'demon from teen titans go' on google images. Imagine that but waaay smaller. <p> Personality: she is shy and afraid, hates to fight, and is usually quiet. She is very good with medicine and herbs. <p> Family: this character was given to me, not made up, so she does have a family. A mother, a father, and an aunt. You will have to figure it out yourself.
