    " A must have collection for any American Lit. buff. "

    " Not too into classics but there were some stories I sort of liked in here... Ant think of any at the moment, but there were two or three "

    " I am so sick of Hawthorne. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lindsay | 5/31/2011

    " An absolutely beautiful story. If you need inspiration or the right words to say, glance over the novel--Hawthorne has a lovely style of writing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris | 5/25/2011

    " I'm pretty sure I read this in prep school and enjoyed it but I remem- ber nothing about it. I struggled to read "The Scarlet Letter" but re-
    member more about it. Go figure... Date read is a guess "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Liz | 5/25/2011

    " This is an old-fashioned mystery, ghost story that was simple enough but very slow moving. My favorite chapter was the one describing the expired man's overnight in the empty house. Odd, huh? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Margaret | 5/19/2011

    " I read the Kindle edition, Hawthorne's House of the Seven Gables (bargain edition typeset for the Kindle) Dec 2008. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this. I liked the old fashioned English. The story was a real page turner, I couldn't wait to get back to the story every time I had to stop. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 David | 5/17/2011

    " I've tried reading this about eighteen times. Still haven't finished it. My wife says that this is her history teacher's favorite book of all time. Her second favorite book? Probably something equally dull. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 5/11/2011

    " Solid 3 1/2 - 4 stars.
    Loads of description and not as haunting as I would have liked, but still really good.
    Extremely, extremely well written though a bit heavy handed.
    I feel smarter after reading it :) "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Tricia | 5/4/2011

    " I endured this book. The plot line is interesting enough but the narrative goes on and on and on. If I wasn't so stubborn about finishing the book, I would not have finished it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bekah | 4/14/2011

    " I had to read this for school, and surprisingly enough it wasn't terrible! The descriptions were interesting and the style of the narration made it interesting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elizabeth | 3/31/2011

    " Almost done with this - so good, and either I've forgotten or I've never read it before. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Danielle | 3/29/2011

    " Another great story by Hawthorne, full of Gothic elements and all types of social commentary. The only reason this one isn't getting a 5 star rating is that the ending was weak and appeared to negate the overall societal themes of the novel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda K | 3/25/2011

    " Full of ominous settings, descriptive characters and mysterious occurances, this story was not at all what I thought it might be. Although I thought it to have witchcraft in the 1800s New England as it's theme, it was so much more than that. And, the ending was quite satisfying. A good read. "

About the Author
Author Nathaniel Hawthorne

Nathaniel Hawthorne (1804–1864) was born in Salem, Massachusetts, and made his ambition to be a writer while still a teenager. He graduated from Bowdoin College in Maine, where the poet Longfellow was also a student, and spent several years traveling in New England and writing short stories before his best known novel, The Scarlet Letter, was published in 1850. His writing was not at first financially rewarding, and he worked as measurer and surveyor in the Boston and Salem Custom Houses. In 1853 he was sent to Liverpool as American consul and then lived in Italy before returning to the United States in 1860, where he died in his sleep four years later.
