Not really a review, more like my thoughts. After reading some of the things written on SparkNotes about Madame Bovary, I realize that I miss some of the deeper meanings and themes of the book. I did really enjoy it though. I found myself empathizing with Emma. I can't really pinpoint what it was I was feeling connected to, but there was definitely something. This is one classic that I will read again.

This is one of those I just couldn't finish. I mean to try again someday, because I've read some good reviews like this one!
