Reviews

Review this book!

On Dec 7, 2004, pazzobooks said
Other than an unmitigated desire to smack the whiny lady upstairs, Ethan Frome had virtually no impact on me. While most books I really detest are extremely long, Wharton managed to flip the switch in what is basically a novella. Impressive.
