    Why so many ugly one star reviews All about as insightful as the ubiquitous one star reviews of Lolita which call Nabokov the man a child molester, raving morons who can t distinguish a character from an author and go beyond simply missing the point And how ironic that all these reviews seem to be from women raging that this book which they all obviously read for their gender

    Often I have witnessed women, who proceed to talk about misogyny, sexism, or state their views on a piece of feminist literature, starting their discourse with something along the lines ofI m not much of a feministbutAs if it is best to put a considerable distance between themselves and this feared word at the onset and deny any possible links whatsoever As if calling herself a femini

    SPOILERS in the comments One of the earliest sleep with whoever you want feminist rhetoric books I think much of what feminists fought for and accomplished was vital for protecting women Women have never lived with such freedom I stand behind many of the advances This book, however, as part of the general 60 s feminist philosophy not the major thinking of the early feminists , I believe has ha

    In a hearing I observed once, the husband testified that he had tried to have his wife served with his petition for divorce in the Costco parking lot The wife went running across the parking lot to avoid service, and her eight and ten year old kids ran after her, dodging traffic and jumping into the wife s car as it screeched out of the parking spot The husband filmed them on his iPhone, shouting, You

    I d like to give this book ZERO stars, but it s not an option This is hands down the worst book that I ve ever read I will never say that again in a review, because this one wins that prize.BIG SPOILER AHEAD Be warned.I had to read this thing twice in college, and it is a horrible story We are supposed to feel sympathy for a selfish woman with no redeemable qualities Just because her marriage is bad it does not

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here I guess I can understand why The Awakening is considered so important in the development of the feminist canon At the same time, I can understand why it was rejected so adamantly in its own time Chopin is an okay writer Her work, however, seethes ignorance Her work was ignored in its time because it really was not worth the recognition Anyway, that s my humble, and no

    If a woman decides out of whim to shun the familial responsibilities of motherhood and wife and become a servant to her passing senses she should be rebuked If a man does it he should be rebuked all the same Any person regardless of gender, age, or social standing who demonstrate such irresponsibility deserves their chastisement I have read a lot of varying responses to this novel and a good deal of them criticizes this book for the selfish irresponsibili
