Overview

'Therese Raquin' is a clinically observed, sinister tale of adultery and murder among the lower orders in nineteenth-century Paris. Zola's dispassionate dissection of the motivations of his characters, mere 'human beasts' who kill in order to satisfy their lust, is much more than an atmospheric Second Empire period-piece. 'Therese Raquin' stands as a key early manifesto of the French Naturalist movement, of which Zola was the founding father. Even today, this novel has lost none of its power to shock.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Its force of impact, its narrative muscle and its psychological clarity make it still, nearly 150 years on, one of the most shocking books in the canon."  —Julian Barnes, author, The Sense of an Ending

Plenty of guilt to keep you turning the page! Unexpected turns make you feel like you have it figured out, but do you?

I found this title listed with 'books you need to read before they become movies'. Was intrigued and so read it... reminded me a lot of Madame Bovary in High School English.
