This one was so over the top, that even Le ventre de Paris was less gormandizing. Please share your thoughts and join the conversation!
I do so like Zola – might even be 5 stars, but I feel I have to leave some room in the ratings for even better reads. Things start to go wrong once the priest starts to mingle amongst the neighbours and slowly turn the town against the Mourets.
Jul 10, Sarah Alami rated it it was amazing. While the first three books in the series were a breeze to get through, this one was a bit of a trudge. You are commenting using your Facebook account.
The topic didn’t require anything more and flow was at a nice pace. Even his minor character don’t feel like cardboard cutouts, but perhaps I just don’t see them like others might, and I’ll acknowledge it here and now. Perhaps by this point in the series he was getting tired of his own mission, of painting the baseness of human nature and so let loose like a cannon shot, without much accuracy.

The culmination of all the slight machinations of the characters over the entire novel is this fire, which engulfs The story of a priest who comes to a small French backwater determined to wrest control of it away from the out of power Legitimists and hand it over to the Bonapartist Republicans. Also there is his contempt for small town life and its petty feuds and backbiting social life. Well, in Plassans the party of the Empire under Napoleon III wants its seat back, and they have a suitably Machiavellian plan to achieve that.
He moved among the couples Mouret, from where it gradually spins its web on the minds and in power. The hypocrisy of olassans 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.
I felt certain I’d read the equivalent conquette two thousand pages when I looked up to see ” more to go”.

ds I am reading the full twenty novels of the Rougon-Maquart series by Zola. Refresh and try again. But even they, in their machinations, could never have gone this far.
Within Plassans the majority of the action takes place in the Mouret’s house and the Church of Saint Saturnin. I could have written this in my sleep and made it a barn-burning mini-series for television.
