Madame Bovary - Gustave Flaubert
Have you read it? What did you think - and be real careful with your answer because there is an elite, vampirish group of Bovary groupies that will judge the hell out of you, if you say you 'didn't really like it.' Try. Try really hard to like it, not that you have to but... Millions of Francophiles can't be wrong. *This is a lovely hardback edition, with just a touch of wear to the dust jacket, upper corner, as seen in the photos.
