liked it
bookshelves: classics, france, rougon-macquart
Read in October, 2009

This fifth installment of the Rougon-Macquart saga is not the happiest of books.Out of all the Zola I have read, I place this one at the bottom of the list.A tale of a thoroughly dysfunctional family and their boarders.It is a story filled with madness, jealousy and the lust for power. I am glad I read it as I do want to go through all 20 volumes, but not one I recommend.
