A snapshot of average American people with seemingly average, American problems. Nice pacing and character development, but I was dissapointed with the plot ending.
Satire is often funny. In this book it grim and contemptuous. Flaubert condemns complacent provincialism and excessive urbanity equally, through a host of unpleasant characters. This book is justifiably famous for its racy and lurid passages concerning love affairs, and its cruel exposure of false or forced unions. Is it worth reading? Yes; it is eloquent on the subject of human folly. Yes; it has an engaging story. But it is not happy.
