I enjoyed this book. I can't tell if it was really the story, or if it is just Cather. She is an amazing author and she can make any character, the most flawed person, into someone you want to see succeed, even as the narrator becomes disillusioned. This book I have read, was written in response to Madame Bovary, and I read them one after another. They are almost exact opposites, but they both posit that women are tabula rasas. They take on the best, or worst, features of the men around them. Of course, the way they go about this, is what is all the fun...
