An oldie but a goodie.
I felt The Awakening was very interesting. It's strange to listen to a time when women were so oppressed and were seen as ornaments rather than equals.

Far Before Her Time!
What made the experience of listening to The Awakening the most enjoyable?
The vivid imagery and symbolism that Chopin uses and the veiled infidelity and passion were mesmerizing.
What did you like best about this story?
Her desire to live HER life not the social norm.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes - I listened to it about 6 times already and constantly find something I missed in Chopin's style.
Any additional comments?
This book was written in approximately 1899 and was banned. The main character, Edna, is far too independent for this era but her pursuit of living her passion is moving.
