Sujet intéressant mais le style d’écriture ne m’a pas plu (trop simple et les dialogues sont écrits dans la langue d’aujourd’hui alors que l’histoire est censée se passer au 19e siècle) - pas de la grande littérature mais sujet féministe qui informe sur une triste réalité

I feel like the premise of this book had a lot of potential but it ended up falling a bit flat for me. Maybe it was the translation, but I didn't find the writing very captivating and never felt we got to know the characters and empathize with them as deeply as we could have. The ending was a bit sudden and random and too "clicking into place"  if that makes sense. I'm curious to see the movie adaptation as it seems like a story that might do well in that format.

There are some scenes that may be triggering to some, but overall, it's an amazing book that truly makes me wonder and think about the condition of women throughout history.
