I don’t care if Madame Bovary is a classic, I’m flat-out bored by it. I’m plugging along and don’t feel attached to any of the characters. It’s more than that…I’m annoyed with them. Half seem melodramatic and the other half are boring. It’s even more disappointing because I was actually expecting to really enjoy it…I usually like reading about 19th century love triangles. Hopefully the second half will be better than the first…ugh.
