Ethan Frome

Ethan Frome - Edith Wharton 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?!?
