more focus, miss mori

I'm a cinematic addict but I like books, too.

Ethan Frome (Penguin Classics)

Ethan Frome - Elizabeth Ammons, Edith Wharton The introduction was totally worth it. The rest of the novel was a super-depressing male & socioeconomic version of Kate Chopin's The Awakening, complete with the obligatory suicide-attempt ending.

I get why it's good. Starkfield is portrayed as true to its name as it gets. I'm supposed to pity sympathize with Ethan -- and I did -- but this book succeeded a bit too much in making his situation miserable for him, so much so that his situation was miserable for me to read.
