Ethan Frome

(5 stars)

A heart-felt and moving performance by Bob Neufeld of this American Realist classic.

(3.5 stars)

Well written. Well read. The plot to me was ambiguous. This book did not leave a lasting impression on me. The writing is superb but the ending could have been more developed. Overall a very good book but I have no inclination to read it again.

Magnificent reading of a magnificent book
