How did you personally come to Wharton

Time of innocence

will just go. Should he marry his fiancée, who enables him to live a stable life? Or should he marry Ellen, who cannot or does not want to adapt.

Personally, I found the book downright fascinating. I found it very amusing what will happen to this love triangle. However, I found the portrayal of the people and high society in New York simply successful. You had the feeling that everyone is so adjusted and not noticeable that it already seemed like a compulsion on me. As a reader, I was really able to immerse myself in the plot. The emotions in the story really wavered, once everything was wonderful and then again it wasn't, so I was just carried away as a reader.

I found the characters really wonderfully developed. I liked how complex these had appeared to me and with so many of them, I just thought, what are you the stuffy ones, because everything seemed so real to me. I am absolutely delighted.

The spelling was a delight. With some classics you are put off by the spelling because many are very difficult and sometimes also seem very tiring. Here, however, from my point of view this was absolutely not the case. The book was easy to read and everything made a very fluid impression. The plot is written by an authoritative narrator who presents everything from outside. But I thought it was chosen very cleverly, because you would probably be outside of these people and so everything seemed very real to me.

I find the cover quite appealing and elegant. Personally, I find it very appropriate to the plot.
