This Week's Letter is "M"

Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert

For this novel of French bourgeois life in all its inglorious banality, Flaubert invented a paradoxically original and wholly modern style. His heroine, Emma Bovary, a bored provincial housewife, abandons her husband to pursue the libertine Rodolphe in a desperate love affair. A succès de scandale in its day, Madame Bovary remains a powerful and arousing novel.

AWESOME. I listened to this on an audiobook. I was pleasantly surprised that it was good and that I enjoyed it. I do often read/listen to Classic novels, but when I read the synopsis I thought "sounds pretty boring", but it wasn't. It was suspensful, surprising and just good story telling.

I read this years ago and remember enjoying it. I should probably re-read it as an adult and see what all I missed the first time through. ;-)

I love reading classics. I'll have to add this one to my list. Here is my "M" book.

This is one of those books that falls under the category of "I Probably Should Read But Haven't Gotten Around to it Yet."
