Thérèse RaquinBasking in the sun When Thérèse Rauin is forced to marry the sickly Camille she sees a bare life stretching out before her leading every evening to the same cold bed and every morning to the same empty day Escape comes in the form of her husband's friend Laurent and Thér?. Usually when I review a book I try to allot the stars not by the audiobook's narration but by the author's words and content With this book I am awarding four stars but it is partially due to Kate Winslet's fantastic narration She is as you must know a famous actress I strongly believe I would never have been able to imagine the words with the terror and emotion evoked through her reading She does a fantastic job In addition I would have been furious if at every mention of Camille's name it had been improperly pronounced All the French streets and terms are spot on; this is an important part of drawing the downtrodden life in the poorer less affluent areas of Paris where the story unfolds in the latter 1800s You are told in the book description that Laurent and Thérèse kill Camille Thérèse's husband and cousin It is what happens afterwards that constitutes the true story This is a psychological drama not a murder mystery It is suspenseful creepy and horrifying Are you listening It is horrifying At least when it is read by Kate Winslet She notches up the suspense the creepiness and the horror until you are sitting on the very edge of your seat I haven't read a horror book in years; this has given me a good dose enough to last for at least the next ten years In the book description we are also told that Zola dispassionately dissects the motivations of his characters mere 'human beasts' who kill in order to satisfy their lust I disagree; there is nothing dispassionate about this book It is all about emotions and passions and please note the end of that sentence I uoted It speaks of humans behaving as beasts filled with lust Now that gives the proper feeling of the book So read this book if you want a moving study of human emotions of fear and guilt and what propels some of us to behave feverishly and crazily Being a horror story I at the same time find it a bit exaggerated Not everybody behaves like this but you get so pulled into the tension that you feel the agony of their guilt And what about punishment That is another uestion delved into What is the worst punishment that we allot ourselves or that forced upon us by others Violence and abuse which is harsher the physical or the psychological I have read this is also a study of people with different temperaments This didn't work for me Thérèse’s aunt Camille’s mother is drawn as a sweet loving mother but I see her as calculating Laurent's temperament is clear He is at first at least careful and prudent He is calculating and egotistical avaricious just plain wicked Thérèse she is drawn as a passionate figure and yet at the same time devious and secretive Putting together those two characteristics does not work for me Usually emotional passionate people simply cannot hide what they are thinking or feeling Perhaps under the stress of her evil deed she searches everywhere for absolution and escape You have to read the story to see where it ends I do recommend it but listen to the audiobook version narrated by Kate Winslet
