No. 31 - The House of the Seven Gables

by Nathaniel Hawthorne

Started: June 2
Finished: June 16

Notes: This is another of those books of classic literature I've been meaning to get to. It's supposed to be an eeiry, sort of gothic tale. Guess I'll find out.

Mini review: I almost hate to admit it, but I was bored through most of this reading. The descriptions and expostion and explanations take up half the book! When it got down to actual storytelling, it was a good book! But that seemed rare. Still, I'm somewhat glad I read it. This is sort of a New England gothic tale, with plenty of spookiness.
