This review is from: Germinal (Oxford World's Classics) (Paperback)
I read this book for an ou course. If it had not been on the list there is no way I could have finished it.
It is so well written that you can see smell and hear everything in it. It scared me and it upset me. I found myself sympathising with violence-not something I am used to.
Would you enjoy this book? no definately not that is the wrong word. Should you read it anyway? definately! it is worth getting out of your comfort zone for. I wanted to give this very few stars for making me angry and for making me cry but it's just written so well. Just because I didn't laugh or enjoy the storyline does not alter the fact that I will forever remember this book it has challenged so many of my ideas.
