Publisher's Summary

Listen to The Awakening with a movie-style soundtrack and amplify your audiobook experience.    

Kate Chopin's 1899 novella The Awakening is about the personal, sexual, and artistic awakening of a young wife and mother, Edna Pontellier. While on vacation at Grand Isle, an island in the Gulf of Mexico, Edna befriends the talented pianist Mlle. Reisz and the sympathetic Robert Lebrun, both of whom will influence her startling life choices. 

Chopin's novel created a scandal upon its original publication and effectively destroyed her writing career. Now, however, it is considered one of the finest American novels of the 19th century.

Buyer beware - pirated from LibriVox

I am the narrator of this book. I produced the book for LibriVox, which provides free public domain audiobooks. You can download this book for free here: librivox .org/ the-awakening-version-2-by-kate-chopin/

Booktrack is yet another company attempting to make money by pirating LibriVox audiobooks - made by volunteers intending that listeners will be able to download and listen for free. If you click on their name you will see that they have "published" many audiobooks - all taken from LibriVox. The Awakening is a wonderful classic by an amazing author - but please don't give these people your money.
