The Awakening - Kate Chopin *snooorrrrrrrreeee ...* Uhh what? Wow. I think I just slept through that whole book. That was like two hundred pages of pure boredom. Look, I understood the significance. I know that the book was written at a time when feminism was rare and women lived hideously boring lives – and actually I think that this book could have been interesting. Except the main character just annoyed me so much. She just seemed pathetic to me, especially at the end. She was just like "Oh, my life sucks and I'm too good for everyone so I think I'll drown myself". It wasn't much of an ending ... Yeah, I didn't like it.
