This is one of the books that has had a profound effect on my life The moral Be happy with what you have and where you are Mme Bovary fritters away her entire life with thoughts of If only X would happen THEN I could be truly happy and yet she never is She ets everything she thinks she wants only to find out she s still not contentI read this while I was engaged and at the time thought Well I ll be happier when I m married but once I am then life will be fabulous After a few years I found myself playing the same role as Mme Bovary Once I can et pregnant and have kids then I ll be happy Once I M NOT PREGNANT AND SICK m not pregnant and sick THEN I can

Eaknesses of Emma Bovary but from the start I could not would not see her that way I was with her when she danced in the ballroom and I wished the party would never end I hated the conventional oodness of Charles and understood Emma s frustration with him better than his frustration with her After all she had ideas dreams longings and he had routine reputation and boredomI rejoiced that she dared to do what men have always always allowed themselves to do enjoy a sexual life of her own choice She knew she would pay a much higher price than any man ever would for that freedom I loved the fact that she embraced life in its passion and pain and I suffered through the horrifying pages of her brutal final agony with the feeling that I would not have wanted her to say no to one single piece of experience in exchange for a better end living according to her husband s standards would have been death over and over without endI am fully aware that this is not a moral reading or interpretation of the novel and I don t encourage or follow her choices in real life but I loved Emma Bovary s daring rebellion without limits when I was young and it has never actually changed Whenever I

IngI can certainly appreciate the characterization and story telling "Ability But I Personally Struggled " but I personally struggled the story as I reconciled what Flaubert seemed to be saying about society women women who had affairs men and romanceNow I would like to take a moment to uote Manny s Review since he is the one who convinced to read this book in the first PLACEFLAUBERT MAKES NO OBVIOUS ATTEMPT TO JUDGE EMMANO FLAUBERT makes no obvious to judge EmmaNo Flaubert t break up his beautiful prose at any point with So whilst that is a very nice tree I would like to intrude and mention that Emma is like a total ho So now back to the treeI feel he doesn t do this because that would be superfluous In fact it seems to me that he doesn t stop judging through this entire book image error Oy the tedium the drudgery of trying to read this book I tried to et into this story Really I did It s a classic right And everyone else likes it I kept making myself continue hoping I could et into the story and figure out what s supposed to be so ood about itI won t waste any of my precious reading time on this It s about a self absorbed young wife who longs for anyone else s life except her own When she s in the city she dreams of the farm When she s in the country she dreams of the city When she s at a social Moonrise gathering she imagines that everyone else s life is so much exciting than her own Blah blah blah Too many wordy descriptions of what people were wearing what the buildings looked like etc If you reoing to take a long time to tell a story it had better be

women and men and that women s dreams are dangerous detrimental and slightly sentimental and ridiculous She made me socially politically angry for the first time I know there are thousands of erudite
