Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert

The classic tale of infidelity on so many banned reading lists pales in comparison to the books, movies, and TV shows today. Flaubert is a master at portraying everyday life in the 1850s. Emma Bovary is so lost in her world of fantasy, I wanted someone to tell her to 'snap out of it', but then there would have been no story! If you are looking to read a classic, I highly recommend it.
