This book did not hold up well over time, and I find it difficult to sympathize with the main character. All the other characters are one dimensional, so it’s hard to like them either. Save yourself some trouble and only read this if assigned.
One of the other reviewers mentioned they had to read it for a class. I probably would have found that helpful, as I am too far removed from university to deconstruct a novel and the references to societal customs and norms were no longer familiar to me. These days, I read more as a form of escapism and am not willing or able to put that much effort into a novel.
That said, if you are interested in tackling this novel, this Wiki link will help with context BEFORE reading the book:
[...] Edit: link didn't print. WIKI the awakening (novel)
(**spoiler alert regarding the 4th paragraph - single sentence - in the "Publication and Critical Reception" section of the Wiki article)
Read it! 5 stars
