    Kate Chopin's novel The Awakening, published 1899, drew a storm of criticism for its "shocking, morbid, and vulgar" story and quickly went out of print. The novel was not resurrected until the 1950s, when participants in the growing women's movement recognized its importance. Today, The Awakening is among the most-read American novels in colleges and universities and is considered an early example of American realism.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Definitely, I have already recommended this book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Christian, because of all the changes he made in his life.


    What does Becca Battoe bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    You know, I had the books, but I let Becca read them with me and it enhanced my reading. When you read the book by yourself sometimes you don't put emphasis where you should.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The book makes you laugh and cry. It is so full of emotions, even the sexaul scenes got to me.
