What the community says about The Age of Innocence

  • Billy Ross
    Written on April 29, 2018
    "This serves as a wonderful and bitter reminder of the differences between rich and poor in the nineteenth century America, and the thoughts in perspectives from the former kind during the time. Anyone who feels they're following the status quo or neglecting their personal desires will take interest in this novel."

    "The Age of Innocence is one of the classics. It's worth reading to understand why it has such a reputation. How you view the quality depends on how you feel about female writers."

    "A documentary of a culture, and love story all wrapped into one! The novel is rich and full of lessons about love. "

    "About life in New York City during the gilded age, a prize winning effort by Edith Wharton. If the idea of 1870s New York society leaves you wanting more, you'll appreciate this book."

    "The book has a great story. It paints a nice and vivid picture too."

    "Although, difficult to tell at first glance at the page, the description for this book is pretty thorough. Also, there are just plain classics offered to purchase in addition and relation to this book. It just claims to be classic, but I want to know why it's so great. The solution just seems overall to me to be dry and uninformative."

    "Good book, with a good plot that mostly makes you want to come back for more most of the time. I found the book interesting but not over the top. I wanted to read more, but not all the time. I would recommend this book to most. "

    "This is such a great story about old New York and society's influence on it. Anyone who considers him- or herself well read should have consumed this classic of American literatue. Great classic to take on, during a leisurely summer break."
