I saw the movie (am not a movie fan at all) by chance, and liked it so well that I decided to read the book.
This is one of the saddest books for me. So much waste.
The knowlege that one has "missed the flower of life".
All due to the mire of hypocrysy, pretention and dishonesty of people living in that period.
And cowardice perhaps, on Newland Archer's part, but more honorable than his wife May, who schemed and plotted to
keep him suckered, all under the cover of innocence and kindness.
I felt this in both in the book and the movie. Highly recommend!

Un roman qui se lit d une traite.il permet de découvrir l hypocrisie de la société mondaine de new York a la fin du 19ème siècle au travers des yeux d archer qui se mord les doigts d avoir sacrifié sa vie amoureuse pour sauver les apparences.il prisonnier de son milieu et de ses conventions étouffante.quelques passages long
s et une fin qui détonne du reste mais c,est un personnage très attachant qui rend ce livre addictif.

Version de base mais qu'importe pourvu qu'on ait l'ivresse. La vision de cette société new-yorkaise comme à bout de souffle et sclérosée est terrifiante. Le style léger de Wharton ne se demode pas.

HASH(0x9ac19ec4) étoiles sur 5 Could not put this book down! 17 juillet 2013
Par suefein - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Edith Wharton and Henry James were great friends. They traveled together and both wrote about the privileged classes. But that's where the similarity ends. Wharton does not go in for incredibly long, tortured Jamesian sentences. Her prose is deceptively simple. But the book is DEEP. At the end of the book it was said that in the Age of Innocence, NY in the late 1870s, everything was known in close personal relationships without having to say anything. That could almost be said of Wharton's book as well. Excellent book. I highly recommend reading it.

HASH(0x9a926eac) étoiles sur 5 WHY THIS ENTRANCING BOOK SHOULD NEVER HAVE BECOME A MOVIE 15 février 2014
Par R. Corey - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Edith Wharton is a master of the psychological in drawing her characters.We are pulled slowly through the story by the silken threads of behavior until we are bound with the story and its people in an inexorable knot.
She is the only writer, besides Dickens, who can make me shed tears.

HASH(0x9a926dc8) étoiles sur 5 Great Writing Still Holds Up Today 16 juillet 2015
Par Debra Purdy Kong - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
Young attorney Newland Archer is engaged to the lovely May Welland and feeling entitled to a life consumed with all the comforts and rituals that his family’s circle of wealthy New Yorkers enjoy. At the turn of the twentieth century, appropriateness in dress, manners, marriages, and relationships is everything. Straying from the fold is not only frowned upon but will turn one into a social outcast, which has happened to May’s cousin Ellen who married a European Count then left him with the help of another man. Countess Olenska’s unconventional attitude appeals to Newland immensely, especially since he’s begun to wonder if marriage to a woman who doesn’t question anything or think for herself might be a tad unsatisfying. The more he ponders this, the more intrigued becomes with the countess. Soon, he questions his entire life.

While the story of snobbish people living useless lives wouldn’t normally interest me, the fact that Edith Wharton wrote it and won a Pulitzer prize for her novel does. I understand why the novel earned such high praise. Wharton writes with the same mild undertone of amusement and mockery that Austen did with Pride and Prejudice, yet Wharton’s subtle layers of cynicism and despondency give the story an edgy feel at times. The conflict between expectation and following one’s heart is beautifully portrayed through Newland’s anguish and regrets.

Despite my hesitancy over the subject matter, I enjoyed this novel. Admittedly, there were far too many characters growing pale during those awkward moments when something is said that shouldn’t be, but what else could they do when outbursts just weren’t done in those days? Having said that, I do believe that the quality of Wharton’s writing still holds up to today’s literary authors.

HASH(0x9a928138) étoiles sur 5 Newland's journey 22 février 2014

I had seen the movie and enjoyed it very much. As with most movies made from books, I thought there were parts of the book left out. I wanted to read just what Ms. Wharton had to say. Told from her perspective, it gave the reader a comprehensive study of the times as they were for the upper class of the day. It wasn't just what they did, it was also what they thought and why. The leading person in the book was a man named Newland Archer. For a woman author to put herself inside this character was an interesting twist. A man with the mind of a woman, without stripping away his masculinity, must have been a challenge. She pulled it off with style befitting the times she wrote about.

HASH(0x9a928210) étoiles sur 5 A Classic and a Good Read 21 septembre 2012
Par Rocky - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
The Age of Innocence, a classic, is often assigned in high school and college. Classics can be good but difficult to read and boring. This book is easy to read. But if you are looking for a cheerful story, skip this one.

I read this book because a friend of mine, whose parents immigrated to the U.S., thought it was fascinating. From her cultural perspective, the characters' feelings and actions were difficult to understand. I am a 13th generation American and have ancestors from the main ethnic groups in this novel. Some of them lived in the time and location in which this story takes place. I found the characters all too easy to understand. This story is about the conflict of cultural demands and interpretations versus interpersonal relationships. For people like me, it is also about the defects of that culture. Although I had already spotted most of those defects myself, it did reveal a few things for me. For example, I never understood why my mother got hysterical about finding the perfect dress for social occasions. Unlike one of the protagonists in this book, she was not good at picking one but thought it was extremely important to do it correctly. Though more relaxed than my mother, I still worry about the perfect dress! All cultures place expectations on people. Usually people are able to live pretty well within their bounds. This book is about what can happen when they cannot.
