Price: $1.99
The Death of Olivier Becaille by Emile Zola is the story which revolves around the central character Olivier Bacaille. Olivier Becaille is a plain little man of not much consequence aside from the fact that he is subject to periodic blackouts, a condition known nowadays as syncope. Unfortunately, at that time, no one really knew about this condition. Horror of horrors when he is mistaken for dead, even by a "doctor." To add to the horror, while Olivier is listening to his own funeral arrangements being performed by the mere owner of the inn they are staying in (and she does not know him), another man is rapidly courting Olivier's wife. He can hear all this but there is nothing he can do. He cannot move a muscle and his eyes remain firmly shut. Indeed. His next stop is his own coffin. He is buried alive. You will have to read the book and step into the cemetery to find out what happens next. The book will keep you involved till the very last line.
