Winesburg, Ohio by Sherwood Anderson | Book Review

Wow. A lot of people really love this book. I am not one of them. I'm sure it's an important book for its variation in style, or maybe its deviations in narrative voice from those of other writings of the time, but I must just not get it. To me it was a bunch of random scenes and none of them interested me. Some of the stories were really weird too. I just don't see the purpose of this book. It's like a literary version of Alice in Wonderland. The writer just wrote down whatever strange fancy came into his mind at the time and when he had enough he called it a book. At least that's what it seemed like to me. Beyond that some of the stories I found a bit disturbing. Not a fan.

Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton | Book Review

This book wasn't for me. I found it boring and depressing, but the writing was beautiful. So, it's like most classics. Edith Wharton is a good writer, the subject matter in this novella just leaves much to be desired when looking to read for entertainment. If you like other classics with romance in them you might like this, but I didn't care for it because the romance is between a woman and a married man. Ethan Frome should be ashamed of himself. Any sorrow I felt for him vanished when I saw that he had feelings for a woman other than his wife. To me, though the content was mild, this is nothing more than a smutty romance novel which happened to be published back in 1911. Ethan and Mattie were selfish fools.
