It's hard not to love Catherine. What an amazing woman!
It could be interesting, but I prefer to read books about history, rather than some overly dramatic, tawdry interpretation of an already great and much loved story.
This is one of the best audiobooks I've listened to.
I think the murder scene was the most memorable. You wanted good things to happen for Therese because you really felt for her and the miserable life she lead, but then her attempt to escape spiraled into a gruesomeness that Emile Zola evoked perfectly.
Kate Winslet captured the emotion and tone of this book perfectly. I think I want her to narrate everything I listen to from now on.
I listened to it in spurts, usually on my commute to work.
I really like Jennifer Weiner and have enjoyed many of her books. The characters were predictable, but it was a good story. I didn't really care for Olivia Thirbly's voice though. It came off as a little whiny and baby-ish.
I didn't have a favorite character.
I don't think I will, no.
No, I think a sequel would ruin it. It was a good story, but not one that left me wanting more. I was pretty happy with the way it ended.
