    Hester walked across the room She stepped upon her left foot, her right foot, and then her left foot again One wonders, why doth she, in this instance of walking across the room, begin her journey upon the left foot and not the right Could it be her terrible sin, that the devil informeth the left foot just as he informeth the left hand and those bewitched, left handed persons amongst us Why, forsooth, doth the left

    The story, not bad The style, unreadable Here is who I would recommend this book to people who like sentences with 4 or 5 thoughts, and that are paragraph length so that they are nearly impossible to understand because by the time the end, of the sentence, has been reached the beginning, and whatever meaning it contained, has been forgotten and the point is lost.

    I found my old high school review of this book Here s a little bit of my assessment Apologiese in advance If there is a hell, Hawthorne is the devil s sidekick, and the first thing you re given after the stark realization that you re in hell, on fire, and this is going to last forever is this book And you have to do a 10 page paper praising the wondrous virtues of this massive waste of time And after you ve finished writ

    Actually, I ve read this book twice, the first time when I was in high school Reading it again after some thirty years, I was amazed at the amount of meaning I d missed the first time Most modern readers don t realize and certainly aren t taught in school that Hawthorne as his fiction, essays and journals make clear was a strong Christian, though he steadfastly refused to join a denomination and here his central subject is the central

    It s great to finally get back to the classics It s been far too long since I read a book with careful intensity, noting throwaway lines that are likely to show up on a multiple choice or short answer test that misses the main themes of a book entirely while managing to ask lots of questions like, In the fourth chapter, what kind of shoes was character you don t even remember wearing I was thinking maybe it would be nice to read a book li

    Maybe 2.5 stars if I were just rating this on how much I actually enjoyed reading it The 40 page Custom House introduction was pure pain to plow through, no lie, and there are a lot of slow spots where Hawthorne gets hung up in the details But 5 stars for the richness of Hawthorne s language, the intriguing symbolism, and the way he delves into the human heart So I ll compromise at 4 stars.The Custom House part which is just a framing device
