M. Bovary

M. Bovary considered--I love book-note like continual blogging.  I love to see people's reactions in "real time" as it were.

And again, M. Bovary

Interestingly, nothing would tempt me back to the book.  While acknowledging it as a classic and even giving a nod of the head to those who commend the style--there is something so oppressive about it that I couldn't be persuaded to read it again on a bet.  But I love reading other people's reactions to it.  Perhaps they will eventually erode the monumental antipathy I have toward it.  (An antipathy, I might point out mingled with profound appreciation.  Let's face it, Flaubert and I just don't seem to get along too well.)
