Read in January, 2009

I love Emile Zola's books, but this book was not as good on a second read. The language, which had seemed fairly poetic a few years out of college, now seems a bit overwrought. I did like the social commentary. I could see the naturalistic elements quite well. The portrayal of Desiree makes me want to read Doctor Pascal because I think she may also be in it.
