Not sure about Ethan Frome, but I felt that way about Dostoyevsky and some Hardy... Even Grapes of Wrath was a story I was relieved to finish.

Life's too short (and my TBR list too long!) to read books that bum me out. (higher tolerance if it's historically accurate and informative historical fiction)

I wouldn't say they're bad or poorly written based on that, though - just not my cup of tea. Neither is SF, dystopian, or depressing fantasy.

I'll give Ethan Frome a chance, especially since it's so short. I'll sandwich it between Georgette Heyer and Julie Garwood romps, just in case.
