It's beautiful, laconic and ultimately heartbreaking. Quite a different read in general if you're looking for one.
Do you have a particular edition or translator you would recommend for reading the book in English? The music from the Candide musical is so much fun. I re-read Germinal by Zola recently and once again I was blown away.

I feel for the horses even!! It is such an emotional riot of a story, it is heavy going so if you want a lighthearted novel it is not for you, but it is a story that will stay with you for a long time!! Read it a long time ago and loved it! It is so heavy with human misery.
I'm planning to read this one soon however I know it's part of a series so is it good as a standalone novel? I am contractually obligated to say Les Miserables by Victor Hugo. Frenchie here.

I'm going to drop in one of my favorite books of all time by the very French author Victor Hugo. He was born, died, and is buried in France however he wrote Toilers of the Sea while in exile in Guernsey and its where the story takes place. I'm not going to attempt to explain it so here's the blurb from the wikipedia page:.
When Lethierry's ship is wrecked on the Roches Douvres, a perilous reef, Deruchette promises to marry whoever can salvage the ship's steam engine. Gilliatt eagerly volunteers, and the story follows his physical trials and tribulations which include a battle with an octopus , as well as the undeserved opprobrium of his neighbours.

Only later did I understand the meaning of his desire to turn his life into a novel, by his reluctance to speak directly of certain things, and by his habit of secrecy, his addiction to secrecy.
Secrecy may become second nature. In Paris at the beginning of the twenty-first century, Jacques Rossi still wrote his Parisian address book in secret code. Jacques feared, above all, that any indiscretion could harm friends who were still alive. I, on the other hand, was demanding absolute transparency.
His first reflex was, therefore, to refuse, to rebel, to treat me as an interrogating officer, in other words, as a torturer. And then, suddenly, he would reveal things that, in turn, shed light on other things.
