To start off I like how you feel so deeply throughout the book. This sense of being stuck in unhappy circumstances and It'll never change are felt throughout the story. it's clear that Edith Wharton knew what she wanted to do purpose wise. I also felt sad for the characters who are forever unhappy due to circumstances they had no control over. when they find some way to get control it still doesn't work in their favor. There is no happily ever after in this book or even great growth in this book. Just people existing trying to ignore the past while being reminded of it everyday.
This leads me to the parts I dislike. The scene where it looks like Frome may finally be able to get some semblance of what he wants (to be with someone he loves and stop feeling miserable for multiple reasons) is suppose to be a dramatic time. However, I can't help but feel I was shaken out of a deep spell I had yet to fall fully under. To me this seemed like a giant idea/change that came out of nowhere. For me it didn't make sense, and I was unable to to enjoy this book as much as I could. It was Edith Wharton's choice, but I would have done something more powerful to emphasize how dramatic this event was.
Most books have characters that change or a great lesson that blazingly clear in the book. To me, and probably others, this is not one of those books. I had to talk and think hard about what I took from this book. One of the two things was that some people don't change they just exist and stay the same throughout their life. This happened to Frome from the moment his father got sick and his dream ended of higher education. Actually anyone who enters his farm never leaves so maybe that's it. The other is that the past always holds a hand on us while the other pushes us into the future no matter what. Both of these ideas haunt me with their truth and unpleasantness.
