Penguin Classics presents Edith Wharton's Ethan Frome, adapted for audio and available as a digital download as part of the Penguin English Library series. Read by Nathan Osgood.

He seemed a part of the mute melancholy landscape, an incarnation of its frozen woe, with all that was warm and sentient in him fast bound below the surface.

Ethan Frome works his unproductive farm and struggles to maintain a bearable existence with his difficult, suspicious, and hypochondriac wife, Zeena. But when Zeena's vivacious cousin enters their household as a hired girl, Ethan finds himself obsessed with her and with the possibilities for happiness she comes to represent. In one of American fiction's finest and most intense narratives, Edith Wharton moves this ill-starred trio towards their tragic destinies. Part of a series of vintage recordings taken from the Penguin Archives. Affordable, collectable, quality productions - perfect for on-the-go listening.

    " I thought that it would've been better had I not had to read and analyze it for my Accelerated English 4 class. It was a good premise and the story was very well written and I love the fact that there was a neat twist at the end. I didn't feel that the main focus of my classes analysis consisted of the minute details and focused almost solely on the "narrator" that appeared only twice in the book, for a small amount of pagetime "

    " Super quick read that had me pulled in from the start, with an ending that left me wanting desperately to talk to others about their thoughts. "
