(P)1994 by Blackstone Audiobooks
This work is nothing less than succulently powerful. Chopin sucked me right in, and I felt it all with Edna. I'm left, several days after finishing it, still thinking about the story. Potent stuff.
This book appears on a list of the 100 greatest books which is why I read it. I certainly can't figure out why it has been selected. It is boring, empty and supercilious. The author is certainly a good writer and maybe she portrays an anomaly of the times -- an independent woman. But Ibsen does it so much better. I would recommend not wasting one's time on this one. There are far better books out there -- try The Mill on the Floss, for instance.
I love this book. The story moves fast, and keeps you in wondering agony to find out what is going to happen. The reader is ok. I make sure this book is always on my ipod, so I always have a good book to listen to.
