I suppose this can be said to be a book about suffering. In every chapter, people and animals are subjected to suffering; they endure being treated like "zeros" Part of this reason is the masses live in relative poverty while the few elite tread on them as a way of life. The Napoleonic represents the bourgeois who watch in comfort while the common man wrestles with the simple act of survival.
