Surprisingly, I loved Ethan Frome. I was really curious about this book, because I've never read any of Edith Wharton's work and my teacher hinted that this book would be about an affair. And it was actually very good. The book was written in 1911, so it wasn't too long ago. It's extremely short and gets to the point quickly, which I like. There is a lot of imagery and description in some parts, but it's written so beautifully that I didn't mind. The plot moved at a decent pace, the characterization was good, the ending was surprising. There is a bit of a twist that I wasn't expecting, which was refreshing because I usually can predict the endings of books pretty well. If you ever need to read any of Edith Wharton's work, whether for school or for fun, I would definitely recommend Ethan Frome.
