    Excellent Read

    This was an excellent book, a quick read, and dramatic. There are heroes and antagonists and well as the just plain pathetic. It is about "sin", redemption, and a course a little of New England Puritanical history. I loved the part about how when they caught Quakers, they would execute them in the square if they didn't repent. So much for a weirdo religious sect leaving a country because of religious intolerance only to be the most extreme case of Taliban like culture in America. Maybe I totally missed the point. Whatever, it was a good story.

    A Great Classic

    A wonderful classic! Relax and savor the language and the ideas. He is in no hurry to "get on with the tale" and the reader should not be either.

    Hawthorne at His Best

    What is there to say. Nathanial Hawthorne is the finest of American authors. His symbolism is exceptional, and he always ends with the reader having to interpret what really happened. There is a reason this is a classic.

    Read dis slow n u really enjoy dis amazing book

    Wow! Clearly many people on here were not very fond of this book. However, I thought this book was splendid! I believe one of the main reasons I enjoyed this so much was due to my teacher forcing me to read literature such as Othello,1984, Life of Pi, etc. All of these books mentioned are not in the fantasy genre (my favorite genre), but I was still able to appreciate them! One of my favorite things about this book was the character named Hester Prynne. Hester is an attractive female around the time period of the Salem witch trials who commits adultery. Seeing her cope with the brand of the scarlet letter and raise a child who is a clear symbol of it was very interesting. The themes of patriarchy, irony, and man vs. self also made this a fine read. READY THIS SLOW! And really enjoy this amazing book.
