This is the first novel I've read from Wharton. There was a lot care that went into the writing and the story, thinking you know how it ends and that dread hanging over and the dread hanging over the whole tale...and then the twist ...tt was spectacular. ( )

What I think at page 49:
When I first picked up this book I thought it would be kind of like to kill a mockingbird where Jem and Scout were discovering about the mysterious Boo and he turned out to be a nice guy. Boy was I wrong. 10 pages in it switches from the new guys perspective to Young Ethan Frome's perspective. He loves his ill wife's cousin! He was HAPPY his wife left town to go see a doctor because then he could be alone with Mattie! Ethan disgusts me. Zeens being sick means that she needs him more, yet all he can concentrate on is Mattia and finishing everything else so that he has more time with her.

Can't be with the one you love because of a nasty ill wife? Clearly the solution is to kill yourself and the girl so that you'll never have to separate! Except when that fails you'll need to have your sickly wife take care of you both. This was such a pointless book. How is this a 'masterpiece'?!? Man falls in love even though he's already MARRIED, girl loves him back, they fail an attempted suicide, ill wife takes care of the both. What kind of story is that?!? ( )

It will only take you the afternoon, but it’s shocking snowy ending will leave you pondering it for days.

I had the story, bit by bit, from various people, and, as generally happens in such cases, each time it was a different story. (Author's Introductory Note)
The village lay under two feet of snow, with drifts at the windy corners.
Citat

He never turned his face to mine, or answered, except in monosyllables, the questions I put, or such slight pleasantries as I ventured. He seemed a part of the mute melancholy landscape, an incarnation of its frozen woe, with all that was warm and sentient in him fast bound below the surface; but there was nothing unfriendly in his silence. I simply felt that he lived in a depth of moral isolation too remote for casual access, and I had the sense that his loneliness was not merely the result of his personal plight, tragic as I guessed that to be, but had in it, as Harmon Gow had hinted, the profound accumulated cold of many Starkfield winters.
...we came to an orchard of starved apple-trees writing over a hillside among outcroppings of slate that nuzzled up through the snow like animals pushing out their noses to breathe. Beyond the orchard lay a field or two, their boundaries lost under drifts, and above the fields, huddled against the white immensities of land and sky, one of those lonely New England farmhouses that make the landscape lonelier.
