The Scarlet Letter, by Nathaniel Hawthorne

The Scarlet Letter The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I found that I had to be in the right mindset to 'get into' this book. After a long day's work, this can be difficult because Nathaniel Hawthore uses quite dense language. Once I broke it up by listening to chapters on audiobook I enjoyed the story much more. It is wonderful to see how far womens' rights have come since that period of time, and I find the view points of the characters to be fascinating, especially when compared with modern views. I would recommend this book if you have the mental energy to spare.
