I read it. It is very powerful, vivid and brutal, yet beautiful. His best. It's the first of his novels that I read. And now, unfortunately, I've read them all. I love them all. But this is his best.

Comradely,

> Germinal (1885) is the thirteenth novel in Émile Zola's twenty-volume series Les Rougon-Macquart. Often considered Zola's masterpiece and one of the most significant novels in the French tradition, the novel – an uncompromisingly harsh and realistic story of a coalminers' strike in northern France in the 1860s – has been published and translated in over one hundred countries as well as inspiring five film adaptations and two television productions.
