    " I forgot how good this book was and I think I appreciated it more reading it as an adult. "

    " I reread The Scarlet Letter to teach this year for the first time in a long time, and, as usually the case when revisiting a book, I found it interesting to see what I was drawn to in the novel at this stage in my life. Therefore, as a parent, I found myself comprehending Hester's utter inability at times to understand Pearl. Who hasn't looked at his or her child and thought, "[W]hat is being which I have brought into this world?" Hawthorne's insight into parental relationships was a revelation this time. And who wouldn't like a book in which Reverend Dimmesdale, in his moral and spiritual dilemma, has the overwhelming urge "to stop short in the road, and teach some wicked words to a knot of little Puritan children"? "

    " This book really reflects on the stupidity of the world, it shows how people can be cruel,arrogant and blind to most things. "
