Just Finished Reading: The Awakening

I actually finished this a while ago, but I kept forgetting to post about it. I actually really liked this book. I don't really understand what was so controversial about it though, I was expecting it to be a lot more scandalous. It is about a married woman who falls in love with another man. He ends up leaving, though, so he isn't even there for a majority of the book. When he does come back, all they really do is kiss and then he bails on her because he "loves her too much." I didn't see any reason why this book should have been banned. It isn't nearly as "scandalous" as a book like Madame Bovary or others like that...
