I really loved this book! I thought it was very well written and I loved the story, even though it was rather sad at times. It really shows what can go through people's mind when they're depressed, especially so for the women around the late 1800's who didn't have as many freedoms as we do today.

This book, as far as I can tell, is about a woman who tries to break out. Key word tries. She then realizes that, because she is female, oh she can't be free and do what will make her happy so she kills herself. A wonderful message to oppressed women everywhere: Just kill yourself, nothing will ever get better. Damn I hate this book.

Truly a fantastic book, and decades ahead of its time. You will be hard-pressed to find a more interesting and realistic portrayal of the human psyche than Chopin's. Highly recommended.

Good prose at times. I found the overall story rather disappointing though. Sad for sure.
