Hello, everyone! I'm back again and today I'm reviewing The Awakening by Kate Chopin. I've read this for my American Lit. class. It's part of our "realist reading" that we have been doing lately. I was pretty compelled in this book. I actually enjoyed reading this book. It has a beautiful writing style, and the characters are fully fleshed out. You really want to know what happens to these characters.
You have the "protagonist" Edna, who the reader follows as she comes to her "awakening." You have her husband that seems to be absent for a great deal of the book. Then there is the love interest Robert. While love does have something to do with furthering this novel, it's more about Edna finding out who she is and the consequences of her knowing that. Don't even think that I'm going to spoil the ending for y'all. Go check it out yourself. I would say that this book is totally reading and somewhat enjoyable. No SparkNotes required. I give this four out of five "Aha!" moments.
