Summary:

Brought to you by Penguin.

This Penguin Classic is performed by Fiona Glascott, star of Brooklyn and Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. This definitive recording includes an Introduction by Geoffrey Wall.

Emma Bovary is beautiful and bored, trapped in her marriage to a mediocre doctor and stifled by the banality of provincial life. An ardent reader of sentimental novels, she longs for passion and seeks escape in fantasies of high romance, in voracious spending and, eventually, in adultery. But even her affairs bring her disappointment and the consequences are devastating. Flaubert's erotically charged and psychologically acute portrayal of Emma Bovary caused a moral outcry on its publication in 1857. It was deemed so lifelike that many women claimed they were the model for his heroine; but Flaubert insisted: 'Madame Bovary, c'est moi'.

    The book is fine, I wouldn’t have read it if not for my class, but it’s a classic for a reason. Just not my style. On the other hand (I don’t know how to put this nicely) the narrator really started to get on my nerves after some time. She has a nice voice but she doesn’t seem to be great at pronouncing French names and places. Also, the editor left in the sound of her swallowing her spit in between paragraphs and pages and it made me so MAD to listen to. Over all, the narrator did her job, but I would not get this specific audiobook again
