Anne's IntermittentroPolis

I prefer to keep my reviews short but I can't guarantee them to be sweet. I don't mind discussing, analyzing, or raving but I'm just an inherently lazy writer/reviewer.

Currently reading

The Turn of the Screw
Henry James, Philip Horne, David Bromwich
Across a Star-Swept Sea
Diana Peterfreund
The Dream Thieves
Maggie Stiefvater
SPOILER ALERT!
The Awakening - Kate Chopin The only redeeming feature I found is the righteous deed Robert Lebrun does by letting Edna go. Even though most readers and I would [i]love[/i] a hero who takes action by eloping with the woman, it's a different case here. Since I hated Edna she deservedly gets to be rejected by Robert. The ending was technically an abrupt end to a stupid story about a useless Awakening near the end of the 19th century. The author was so lazy to resolve the conflict correctly and so left everything worse than before. If you want something good, read or watch the play 'A Doll's House' instead.
