George opposite the large Waterworks Tower that dominated that ridge. I do not allege any significance in the relation of the two buildings; and I indignantly deny that the church was chosen because it needed the whole water-power of West London to turn me into a Christian.
I was told by other bloggers that it was excellent but very different from Germinal. Both set in the late 19th century. Zola depicts both the mine in Germinal and the department store which is called The Ladies Paradise in Paris as monsters and machines, consuming the traditional way of life of the countryside and city, feeding on the energy of the workers, exploiting their dreams, and crushing their lives.
A few survive and thrive, a few survive and limp along, but most are swept away by the inhuman ferocity of the machine. The version I read was renamed The Paradise, and is a tie-in to the mini-series, which was set in England rather than France, and it shows on the cover the actress who plays Denise, the main character, a girl from a town in Normandy who comes to Paris with her two younger brothers after their parents die.
I kept on waiting for M. As we deal with our own constantly changing world in which no one really knows what the next big thing will be that will sweep through the market, The Paradise was a sobering book to read.
