This Kindle copy of Ethan Frome is UnreadableThere is something seriously wrong with this Kindle book. I have attached photos of 3 different pages - I read Ethan Frome before, and I know this is not the way Edith Wharton wrote this book. I think the ebook I purchased was translated from some language other than English by someone whose first language is not English. In addition, look closely at the third photo I sent - it actually calls a book being discussed by the two characters an ebook! There were no ebooks in Edith Wharton's day! Something is wrong. I will delete this book from my Kindle and purchase another one, and consider the money I spent for this one lost. I hope no one else gets stuck with this unreadable text as I did. 1Depressing and dullI did not like this book in high school. I can now safely say I don't like it as an adult either. Ethan Frome is a cautionary tale - there are too many warnings here to count depending on your perspective. But it's a story told at you, not one you live alongside the characters. I didn't find myself siding with anyone, because they were not likable people. Everyone is miserable. It is not enjoyable at all, this story about struggle, love, loss, and survival. 2Not as picturedThis review reflects the accuracy of the listing and not the story itself. The listing picture shows a beautifully bound, blue linen text with gold embossed title and small emblem on the cover. What I received however was nothing I would want to display in a home collection. It was an ENORMOUS old library book, in poor condition, with extremely large print unsuitable for carrying in one's purse or briefcase to read anywhere other than home. It was closer to the size of a briefcase itself, in fact. Be aware that you very well may not get the collectors item you think you are paying for. That said, if you have rather poor eyesight and are in need of extremely large type, this would be a very suitable book. 2This is not actually Ethan Frome, this version is abysmalThis version should be expunged from the earth. Do NOT read this version/edition, this one is a terrible distortion and I wasted so much time on it (the one that looks like a scene from a movie on the cover). I could not understand why the others in the book club were getting so much out of this book -- it bordered on nonsensical. Finally I realized, THIS version is not even close to Wharton's actual writing. It's like this version was translated into Dothraki, then into Swahili, then translated back into English. I donwloaded a copy from another publisher and it was a completely different book. Make sure the version you are reading has actual complete sentences and real words. This version does not. 1I really appreciate the OWC EditionsI bought this book for a selection our book club is reading this month. I could have bought other editions, and even downloaded one for free, but I really appreciate how OWC editions are published. The timelines are excellent, as are the notes and introductions. As for the book itself, I really liked its structure, from an interesting prologue to a surprising epilogue. Please do not first read these two chapters of the novella, because Wharton's development of the story really takes the reader in and makes the surprise at the end very gripping. Despite being a very sad book, I found it to be very well written. 5Fates worse than Death for AdulteryThis is the 2nd time I licensed / read Ethan Frome, it was required reading for me in HSPA. And I did not understand the purpose. I think I understand better now. Or stalwart on this reading I'm getting a certain interpretation.I think the blue-blooded , hypochondriac dominatrix Zeena has meuncher's syndrome. She is put our and threatened by her pauper cousin Mattie, and this hatred is in conjunction with being married to Ethan, both keeping her from her preferred elitist lifestyle. Unsure if Zeena knew, or suspected Ethan and Mattie's adultery. If she did not , she achieved the same goal of punishing both of them by sending Mattie away.Yet, though its a tragedy that both Ethan and Mattie lived, it is also a fitting revenge best served cold on Zeena. It's also tragic how sweet lovable and admirable Mattie, switched personalities with Zeena. 4This book will both make and ruin your lifeTHIS BOOK! I can't even fully describe in a review my feelings on this book because they are so intense that i would probably exceed the word limit.I read this book in high school and it is truly so beautiful and well written that when certain things transpired i quite literally threw my book at a wall and broke it in half because of my sheer fury at Edith Wharton who obviously wanted me to feel like a black pit of despair.PRO's :This book will change you as a person.The book is so well written that it will make you a better writer just by having read it.Edith Wharton knows how to write an amazing unconventional love story that you will feel so vividly that you will think you are one of the characters.This is probably one of the greatest books ever writtenCON's:SPOILER: (it might not have the happiest of endings)This book will make you think that you are skipping around in a beautiful field of daises of joy and laughter and wonderment heading towards happily ever after highway - then out of nowhere because WE LIVE IN A CRUEL CRUEL WORLD you will realize that you are NOT headed to happily ever highway but actually to the darkest pit of despair and agony and horrific pain that you will wonder why did you ever want to read this book in the first place? You will wonder if your whole life is a LIE because nothing ever turns out as it seems.When you are done reading this book you will probably need a glass of wine, or a sedative, or a marathon of your favorite comedy tv show because you will feel like a dark cloud of torment and woe sits over you mocking your once faith in humanity and literature.You will never again trust any book as "safe" because as dear old Edith has taught us, writers love your misery.So overall i would highly recommend this book 5I love Ethan Frome!This novel was required reading in my high school back in the 1960's. I'm glad, because it was, and still is, one of my very favorite books of all time and I am a well read person (Note: my license plate reads B1G READ). Back in high school, I wanted to name my son, if I had one, Ethan. (I had three, but, unfortunately, they were all named names starting with "M". I regret that!) "Ethan Frome" is a great advisory tale of what might happen when you do not listen to your heart and follow it. 5A refreshingly depressing story with a twist.This is a wonderfully depressing story about a romantic love that couldn't be. While I found it somewhat laborious, I am glad I read it and at just under 100 pages, it did not take too long to read it. The story is cleverly written, although those seeking a breezy read will be somewhat disappointed. That said, anyone who has suffered in romance will find this alluring. 5Edith Wharton - Greeting An Old FriendI hadn't read Edith Wharton for some time, so I was happy to find this Kindle offering. Just made my purchase & I note that there is a CLEAR INDEX in the front; it is very easy to navigate and looks just like the side illustration (the one next to the cover pic). For 99 cents, this is a true bargain; many stories here! I'm glad to have Ms. Wharton on my Kindle; it feels just like meeting an old friend again! 5
