"Zola's gritty portrayal of his eponymous central character Thrse [is] a brilliantly radical
departure from the simpering female prototypes of Victorian convention."Los Angeles Times

In a dingy apartment on the Passage du Pont-Neuf in Paris, Thrse Raquin is trapped in a loveless marriage
to her sickly cousin, Camille. The numbing tedium of her life is suddenly shattered when she embarks on a
turbulent affair with her husband's earthy friend, Laurent. But their passion for each other soon compels the
lovers to commit a crime that will haunt them forever.

Thrse Raquin caused a scandal when it appeared in 1867 and brought its twenty-seven-year-old author
a notoriety that followed him throughout his life. Zola's novel is not only an uninhibited portrayal of adultery,
madness, and ghostly revenge but also a devastating exploration of the darkest aspects of human existence.

Have you always loved reading but sometimes find it hard to find the time? Theres nothing quite like curling up with a good book but many of us cant do that as much as wed like. We sacrifice this special time because we have so many other things to do each day. Its a common problem and its the reason why people on average are not reading as much as they once did. Audio books bring the story to life just as the storytellers of the past did. They allow you to experience the book in a whole new way; in the way the writer felt and heard it in their head. You can feel the emotion when you allow audio books to let the story come to life.
