Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Prolific screen star Isabelle Huppert turns in another fine performance with her frequent collaborator Claude Chabrol (e.g., Story of Women, La CA©rA©monie) as the dissatisfied wife in Gustave Flaubert's classic novel. An inconsistent use of narration, some abrupt editing, and an overly languid pace detract from an otherwise well-mounted period piece. A bonus doc looking at Huppert's career provides compensation. For larger collections.


—Jeff T. Dick

Read this book years ago and quite frankly detested the book. I almost gave up but i persevered and the ending was most satisfying in that it was over.

I read this my sophomore year and hated it, but I read it again my junior year and was surprisingly impressed. Flaubert paints an excellent portrait of a woman spiraling out of control on her own terms, in a sense, empowering women. Emma Bovary is her own decision maker and suffers her own consequences for it.

This is just a sample of the novel and not the full book--was not advertised as sample only.

I read this in high school and again I love reading tales of strong women although her tale is not wholesome it allowed her an unhear of freedom most were not allowed to experience.

You'd think a bpok about adultery would be more interesting. This book is like 30% adultery and drama, 70% boring descriptions of rural life and long drawn out conversations that have nothing to do with anything. I'm literally counting down the pages until i'm done with this book.
