Classics club spin #28 : and the result is...

 


In this post, I mentioned the #28th spin of the Classics club, the result has been published and N°12 has been elected.

In my list, N°12 was Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert.
I read it as a teenager, loved it.
I tried to re-read it a few years ago when my teenagers had to read it for school (and hated it) and DNFed it.
 
Madame Bovary, this is your last chance to seduce me ! I have until the 12th of december to read it, I think it will be done long before that. I'll let you know. Maybe I should watch the film, too...

  4. I absolutely loved classics when I was in high school but haven't been nearly as enamored with them now that I'm an adult. I can't exactly figure out why, but it sounds like I'm not the only one this has happened to!
