  •  Me Too! Just Finished Age of Innocence (7+ / 0-)

    Newland is a total product of his society.  Ellen refuses to be made into a product of his society.  He dreams of "what if" but lacks the courage to act and be the male equal of Ellen.  No change in him, just a sad realization that he would rather preserve his fantasies than face the dangers of living a real full life.

    Am rediscovering Edith Wharton as my "new" favorite author.  Trying to decide which of her novels to read next, having downloaded them all to my Kindle two years ago.  Bunner Sisters I think.
