haiya! urge to post more.
i just read this book, Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton. My gosh, this book is absolutely tragic. Basically this book is about this man, Ethan Frome, who married the wrong woman and fell in love with another, and later on, the two lovers attempted a suicide mission, which failed.
i fail at summarising the story, but this story is really sad. Ethan's wife is sickly, and he has to spend money on her various 'treatments' and such. then his wife's cousin's daughter comes to stay with them and he falls in love with her. then his wife wants to hire a girl to do all the chores cos apparently her doctor said she wasn't supposed to do the chores at all, so they have to send cousin's daughter away. ethan wanted to run away with her but he cant afford it. they lovers want to sled right into this big tree to kill themselves. they fail.
anyway the most tragic thing is that they both live, but the girl becomes paralyzed, and the sickly wife took care of them. and they all live under the same roof. when ethan got well he worked like he did again. D:
i'm quite bad at telling you how tragic the story is but it really is! read the book if possible. it's quite tedious when the author is introducing the story and some of the english slang i didn't understand, but omg, <3
okay the next thing is Gossip Girl! i love this show.
