The problem is that once I get a few drinks in me, I waffle on about how we allegedly were back in the day (the book argues we were highly sexual beings with multiple partners as hunter gatherers). It is a very creepy chat-up line.
Fantastic book, though I do appreciate a lot of it is conjecture.
Just finished Madame Bovary, simply extraordinary novel. I can see why people don't like it but I thought it was absolutely brilliant. Flaubert, imo, is incredibly accurate in his portrayals of human nature, for 95% of the book. On the face of it it's about adultery in Normandy in the 1850's but it's also for me about how can a person reconcile themselves to a life that has promised them it's going to be more than it is. Spoiler: the ending was a tad too far for me, a cotton mill, really?
