When I read that this was considered by many to be the greatest French novel ever (and particularly this translation), I simply had to read it. It does not disappoint. The prose flows over you like dark clouds. Emma is a dreamer, and her dreaming puts her in a vortex that inevitably brings her to a tragic end. A cautionary tale.

So much wheat and barley. Maybe it's a metaphor for something really deep, but...*yaaaawn*. If I want to read about people who think the world of themselves, I'll read People Magazine. Less cumulative time wasted, less barley, and more pictures.
