Wall Street shenanigans are nothing new. Zola wrote about the French equivalent in 1891. Zola's works stand the test of time and it's a shame he is read so little today. Saccard is deliciously bad. You can't help liking him just for his shear mendacity and financial chutzpah. A 19th c. version of Bernie Madoff . Napolean Ryan is perfect as a narrator every bit as brilliant with character voice as Fredrick Davidson.

Amazing book about the rise and fall of a Madoff's great-great-great-great-great French grandfather! The greatest lesson we can learn from history is that history repeats itself and if we don't learn from the past then we are destined to repeat it.
