“a book that invites superlatives”

That’s on the back cover of Madame Bovary, which I have not read, declared by Frank O’Connor, who I do not know.

Wow.  I am intrigued by that phrase.  It almost, in my mind, says that this is so far beyond any superlative this man could come up with, he’s inviting the whole world to bring everything they can think of.

And now I’m worried that the book won’t live up to such hype.
