    The House of Seven Gables

    One of Hawthorne's best works. It explains through fiction, what Hawthorne truly believed of the Salem Witch Trials.

    House Of Seven Gables

    In the book, House of Seven Gables, Nathaniel Hawthorne tried to connect the past to the present, using generations of family. Back in the colonial era, a Colonel Pyncheon slayed a supposed wizard named Matthew Maule. Pyncheon bought the land and died suspiciously with bloody-hand print on his neck. The story then fast-forwards 3 generations, to a women named Hepzibah Pyncheon. She lived alone in the massive house, except for a tenant named Holgrave. Hepzibah is a lonely old woman, with no friends except Mr. Holgrave. Because of her vision problems, she scowls and everybody has mistaken her for a mean, grumpy lady. In her little store, she spots her cousin Judge Jeffrey Pyncheon, who is blamed for Clifford’s murderous accusation. A relative of theirs, Pheobe Pyncheon arrives that night, staying in the House. Both men, Clifford and Judge Jeffrey fall in love with Phoebe, causing another huge conflict. As Jeffrey tries to kiss Phoebe, things heat up once again between the families. With things getting out of hand, Holgrave decides to write a book about the family. Judge Jeffrey dies from a stroke suddenly, with the town assuming it with Clifford once again, and not knowing what to do, Clifford retreats into the house. I rated this book 3 out of 5, because of the confusing order. In the beginning, it goes back and forth from the colonial era to the present (late 1800’s to early 1900’s). Every now and then, it switches focus from each person, from the Colonel to Mr. Holgrave. Even though it might be confusing at first, once you get into the book, it is hard to put down. The reading goes by fast and the book hooks you. Overall, the book was an okay book, but if you like history and romantic books, you’ll love The House Of Seven Gables.

    A Review

    BORING...This book was very slow! I did not enjoy it and had a hard time finishing. It is a well written classic, just not my favorite.
