User reviews about this book
Ethan Frome’s ending was confusing and anti-climatic
Such a tragic story. Definitely gets you thinking
Really makes you sympathize with Ethan. He was only trying to achieve happiness
I had to read this book for my College Comp class last year and I could not put it down. I read the entire thing in one sitting. I absolutely love it and I would read it a million times if I could. I love this book and highly recommend it!

I hated the ending when they tried to kill themselves they would have been better off if they had just finished the job.
Simple, realistic, and wounding
A quick,vocabulary-rich read. I launched into this reread and finished in a couple of hours (took longer because I was making a study guide for my class as I read). It was just as heartbreaking and hopeless as when I first encountered it. This short but very rich look at the bleakness of harsh,country life without love or hope leaves the reader considering their own blessings.
Another raw look at the familiar theme of unrealized or unconsummated love.
The story covered a period in the lives of three people tied together through a bitter dependency. They lived in extreme poverty. These two circumstances gave a grim tone to the book. The reader is compelled to follow the story with the hope of a relief to the dreary story line.
Quick but satisfying read

I had to read Ethan Frome for an English class several years ago, and to this day it's one of my favorite books. Don't take it at face value- it's not very exciting. But from a literary analysis standpoint, it's rich and full of fantastic ideas and deeply satisfying content. Be warned, though- it does have a very bleak ending.
Ethan Frome Review
I like the book, but Edith blows up the smallest intimate moments like, holding hands. C'mon man, beautiful story line though
I did not like the book
Like a rough winter
It's a quick read and the descriptions and characters are interesting and well-developed. It's a great character study of how life changes people - some for the better, others for the worse. It's not a happy story.
