A time capsule not to be missed
I tried this book because of the narrator, and loved the story! It is a fascinating glimpse into another time and mindset, and has some unexpected turns and ironies. The characters develop through the story in such a way that the listener is thoroughly engaged. Scott Brick gives a brilliant portrayal of the regional accent and cadence of speech. A recommended listen!

Slow is smooth and smooth is Fast until it isn't
This is one of those novels/novellas that is so cold, barren and bleak that the full beauty of it isn't completely evident until you put the book down, drink a warm beverage, and warm your brain, body and soul back up. Wharton's prose is amazing and her plot is perfection.
'Ethan Frome' is another novella that proves that bigger isn't always better. This book joins a short but very amazing list of short novels that seem to almost acheive literary perfection in under 150 pages: 'Heart of Darkness', 'Of Mice and Men', 'Animal Farm', 'Old Man and the Sea' and 'the Metamorphosis'. Anyway, I've read/listened to books well over 600+ pages that have 1/2 as much to say.
