Madame Bovary and I


“As for Emma, she never made any effort to determine whether or not she was in love with himm. Love, she felt, ought to come all at once, with great thunderclaps and flashes of lightning; it was like a storm bursting upon life from the sky, uprooting it, overwhelming the will and sweeping the heart into the abyss. It did not occur to her that rain forms puddles on a flat roof when the drainpipes are clogged, and she would have continued to feel secure is she had not suddenly discovered a crack in the wall.”



Gustave Flaubert :: Madam Bovary

That's cool I just read Madame Bovary too. All that because Flaubert himself was obsessed with an older woman. Good book though. If you liked it you should read Maupassant's short stories.

btw read Dune recently. Have you read all 6 books?
