Pure by Andrew Miller tells the story of Jean-Baptiste Baratte, an engineer from the country in pre-revolutionary Paris, charged with the task of dismantling and removing, everything and I mean everything, from a stinking (literally), ancient church in the city. It’s really atmospheric (could totally imagine the foul, polluted neighbourhood around the church) and I enjoyed listening to the audiobook, as the main character changed from a young engineer eager to please to a disillusioned man who was richer for his acquaintances.
