The ending was a real kicker. I enjoyed this book and I'm glad I read it.

Ethan Frome was, as I said, a good read. I like how the author used a frame to tell this story--it seems as though you are listening in on something. The novel is not that long, and quite engrossing for the majority of the novel so it goes by fast. Some might find Ethan's thoughts a bit melodramatic, but his thoughts made the novel more realistic. The only reason I would not give Ethan Frome five stars is that the ending did not seem to fit the context of the novel. So, to me, the ending was a bit of a disappointment.

The main story read in this book is of course Ethan Frome and as far as im concerned it is just another version of Romeo and Juliet but the writing was actually superior to shakespears in my opinion

As my headline says, I believe this to be the best novel by an American author. Wharton is a forgotten literary star as far as I'm concerned.

Not exactly you're typical Sunday afternoon reading, but that's exactly what it became for me. Ethan Frome is quite the depressing little ditty. It starts in the "present" day. The author arrives at Ethan Frome's home and hears his story. Ethan takes the author 24 years back. Ethan is a long suffering martyr. He ended his studies to take care of his parents, married an invalid, and lives a generally joy-less life. Then, one day, a light enters his life in the form of a poor relation. He falls in love with her and begins to dream. But his wife knows him well and manipulates him back into martyrdom. He makes a reckless decision which leads to a surprising ending.

A fast read. Characters are well developed and are strong. The ending is quite unexpected for those who are not already familiar with this classic.
