Madame Bovary

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Gustave Flaubert

Narrated By: LibriVox Volunteers

Publisher: LibriVox

Duration: 13 hours 0 minutes


Published in book form in April 1857, the novel focuses on a doctor's wife, Emma Bovary, who has adulterous affairs and lives beyond her means in order to escape the banalities and emptiness of provincial life. Though the basic plot is rather simple, even archetypal, the novel's true art lies in its details and hidden patterns. Flaubert was notoriously perfectionist about his writing and claimed to always be searching for le mot juste (the right word)". (Summary from Wikipedia).

    I hated the fact the narrators kept changing. had I known that wadgoing to happen I would have passed on the selection. I was only mildly intersted in the story. due to narration

  • Anonymous

    At one point, during the chapters read by Bob Sage, the narration is accompanied by extremely annoying and unwelcome background noise that is incredibly distracting and unpleasant to the ears.

  • Carol F

    It’s a free book so it’s hard to be critical but some of the narration was very distracting
