Pros:French/Creole Expressions add to the feel of the novel

Cons:Might feel too short

The Bottom Line: I would recommend "The Awakening" to every woman, and to brave men. It was a good read and captured my attention the whole time!


My English teacher suggested a few classic books that he believed would interest me. I was pleasantly surprised by "The Awakening" by Kate Chopin. Not only am I a big fan of New Orleans culture, but I could really associate with the main character, Edna.

I suggest this book to every woman, young or old, because it deals with things that all of us will understand. From sexual awakenings to spiritual and social awakenings, this book takes us to the extremes of every day life. I must say that this novel might convince you to change the way you are currently living your life.

The style of the writing was simple and very direct. This added to the ease and flow of the story. I liked the characters, the realism and the fact that they had faults like the rest of us. The story was also very interesting, although very straightforward.
