Five generations were there present—the Rougons and the Macquarts, Adelaide Fouque at the root, then the scoundrelly old uncle, then himself, then Clotilde and Maxime, and lastly, Charles. Felicite occupied the place of her dead husband. There was no link wanting; the chain of heredity, logical and implacable, was unbroken. And what a world was evoked from the depths of the tragic cabin which breathed this horror that came from the far-off past in such appalling shape that every one, notwithstanding the oppressive heat, shivered.

"What is it, master?" whispered Clotilde, trembling.

"No, no, nothing!" murmured the doctor. "I will tell you later."

Macquart, who alone continued to sneer, scolded the old mother. What an idea was hers, to receive people with tears when they put themselves out to come and make her a visit. It was scarc. . . Read More

The epilogue to this great series of novels raises many questions about what might happen next after the collapse of the Second Empire. Can science replace religion? Logic to replace passion? Can everything be explained, put in a predetermined position and thus create the basis for a bright future?

A disappointing end to the sequence, and one there is certainly no reason to read until all of the others have been finished.

In 1893, Zola published this last volume of Rougon-Macquart. Doctor Pascal is a bit like his double. Moreover, taking refuge in London after the Dreyfus affair, he signed his hotel card with this name.

In family history, this character has a special place, indeed. It is the fictitious custodian of wh

Der Abschluss des Rougon-Macquart-Zyklus erwies sich bislang für jede Generation von Lesern als ganz große Enttäuschung, mir geht es auch im zweiten Anlauf nicht anders. Dabei hat das Grundkonzept durchaus seine Reize: eine Art alt gewordener Faust entdeckt die Liebe zur eigenen Nichte und wird davo

"Our fortune was a long time in the making!"

A peculiar, sometimes sleepy epilogue to my favourite series of novels, Doctor Pascal feels rather like the neglected stepchild one might find in a Zola story. Written in 1893, it is the conclusion to his 20-volume Rougon-Macquart, which details five gener

Vigésimo e último volume da saga Os Rougon-Macquart, história natural e social de uma família sob o segundo império, focando no médico Pascal Rougon da terceira geração.
Todos os livros da série são independentes e podem ser lidos separadamente sem problema algum, com exceção desse. Aqui o autor faz

Mon premier livre d'Émile Zola , il m'était facile de l'écouter comme AudioBook .

Si le récit de ce vingtième et dernier volume des Rougon-Macquart n’est pas le plus passionnant de tous, ce livre offre tout de même une très belle conclusion à une œuvre monumentale. A travers ses personnages, en particulier le Docteur Pascal mais aussi sa nièce et amante Clotilde, Émile Zola dress

"Doktor Paskal" je poslednji roman serijala o Rugon-Makarovima i shodno tome, predstavlja konačnu potvrdu Zolinih teorija o nasleđu i zaokruženje priče o ovoj porodici. Jedini roman koji se možda ne treba čitati bez prethodnog predznanja o Zoli i Paskalovoj porodici. Knjiga je objavljena 1893. godin

It's a great feeling to have reached the end of reading the 20 books of the Rougon Maquart series.

What a pity that this final book is only available in such a poor translation. This very much detracted from my enjoyment of this story, which ties up most of the loose ends of the series.
