Book Review: The Awakening by Kate Chopin

The AwakeningThe Awakening by Kate Chopin
Book Summary: This story of a woman's struggle with oppressive social structures received much public contempt at its first release; put aside because of initial controversy, the novel gained popularity in the 1960s, some six decades after its first publication, and has since remained a favorite of many readers. Chopin's depiction of a married woman, bound to her family and with no way to assert a fulfilling life of her own, has become a foundation for feminism and a classic account of gender crises in the late Victorian era.

Rating(1-10): 7

This book is one of the only classic novels that I'd voluntarily wanted to read. And I was really not disappointed. Kate Chopin has this amazing writing style and description skill that really captivates the reader. Her writing style is super artistic.

I think this book was really meaningful and really symbolic, and it was an interesting read. I liked it, and would definitely recommend it. It's romantically tragic.

  1. If you want a book that makes you think, here it is. The Awakening is interwoven with symbols that the reader must pay close attention to, and it is nearly beautiful how the author incorporates them into the story. Again, this story defiantly makes you think; think about women today. A perfect feminist novel.
