Customer Reviews of The house of the seven gables


Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Read this before the Scarlett Letter. It's a great novel that stands on its own and should be read first so you don't judge it in comparison. Oh yeah. The other one is great too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Liked it Read this one before the Scarlett Letter. Hawthorne's imagery is electric. He uses it to build readers' perceptions of the characters before you meet them in the story.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Classic While a bit slow in parts, I enjoyed this overall. This isn't quite as good as the Scarlet Letter, but fans of that book will enjoy this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great I enjoyed this gothic tale - I really like how Hawthorne writes. Not as good as The Scarlett Letter, but then again, not much is.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing 'Haunted'? 'Cursed'? Good grief. Remember that it was written in 1850 and don't go looking for a thrilling Hallowe'en read here! Quite verbose, as novels of that time were, it takes awhile - a long while, to develop. Not one of my favourites. It was recommended to me so I slogged through, hoping it would improve. Nope.
