really liked it

I understand this book's original title was "A Solitary Soul". I'm not sure why it was changed to "The Awakening" since the story really is more about a solitary journey rather than an awakening. I can't help but feel sorry for Edna Montpellier, who lives a boring life with no true purpose. Today this lady would be reading "self-help" books but at the time, she just got poor advice from the people surrounding her and got lost along the way. The writing itself is very pretty and poetic and the story is very short and easy to read.
