Who read The Portrait of a Lady? :-(

Well, let me be blunt: I can`t believe she goes back to her husband!!! Like someone else said (sorry, I don`t remember your name), I had the greatest urge to throw the book through the air (I didn`t do it, it already looks pretty manhandled). I feel kinda sad now (500 pages for this?). I mean, I did see the movie, but in the movie she leaves her options open. She doesn`t decide anything. In the book she returns to a fate worse than death.
I really liked it, but the end is just too sad to be taken seriously (I already took it seriously, but...)! Boohoo.
