    The Age of Innocence

    This was an outstanding novel. I would recommend everyone to read it. The way Edith wrote this novel makes you feel just as you are a part of the story line yourself. You learn how important it is to go with what your heart tells you to and don't do what society wants you to. Newland Archer learned that the hard way he did as the New York society wanted him to and not as he wanted to. He had a great life he thought until he met the woman that changed it forever. Ellen made his life more complicated than he ever thought it could be. She was a unique individual and thats what made Newland fall in love with her. Although he was to marry May , Ellens cousin. The heartbreak this story has in it is very sad and frustrating because you aren't able to tell them what to do. You just have to sit there and read about it, but you won't want to put the book down for wondering what Newland and Ellens next move will be. Poor May was so worried about what society thought that she wouldn't even admit Newland and Ellens love for each other. May was so stubborn not to realize what was going on right before her eyes. The ending of this book was the worst part about it. It doesn't happen like you would expect it to. In all it was a wonderful novel and I would read it over and over again if I could.

    subtle and simple

    when i got hold of the novel, i thought it was just one of those that would really bore you to tears but i guess i was wrong. the theme was rather simple and the message was relayed with the subtlest effort. the reader is not lead into believing about fairytales and happy ending instead it gives us a peek of reality and the fact that it really bites.

    A masterpiece through and through

    This story is a great one indeed. I read it willingly, and that does say alot! The romance plot is not exaggerated, really. Most of these novels that I read I expect to be mushy and not cool at all, but this is an exception. It had well-rounded characters (which I like), and a strong central character. All in all, I recommend it.
