Thought I'd like this one, as I have liked Hawthorne in the past, but it was a pretty big snooze. Maybe I just wasn't in the right mind-set for it. ( )

i really used to like these old books but they have fallen out of favor with me of late. this ended up being easier to read than it seemed like it was going to be at the beginning. the first chapter was kind of tough (and formal and uninteresting) but then it settled down into smoother language and - while not a particularly interesting story - was easier to read. it never really held my interest, though, and was too wordy for my liking.

this was very much "meh" for me and although i'm interested to reread the scarlet letter just because i feel like i should, i won't be seeking out any of the rest of his novels. i would be open to his short stories, though, because i am interested in what he might be saying and doing, but not in long form apparently.

i thought i could get to like or at least relate to both phoebe and hepzibah (although her name tripped me up until almost the very end) but just never got into it enough to really care about either of them, and certainly not the other characters. i expected this to be spookier but maybe i just wasn't paying close enough attention. and i didn't like how the main characters just suddenly came into wealth and happiness to wrap it up at the end. like he thought he was supposed to make it all come out ok for them before closing it. so very american, i guess.

Please note that I gave this book half a star and rounded it to 1 star on Goodreads.

Bah. Bah a thousand times. I have no idea why I started reading this. I think for the Halloween Book Bingo and I ended up switching it out. This thing was painful to read. I don't even know what to tell you besides if you must read this, just pace yourself since trying to force read this thing was not fun at all. At least the last 10-15 pages were just about Project Gutenberg though. I am going to complain though that my library does not have this as an e-book to download, I had to read it via Overdrive which means I had to either read this via computer or my cell. I am so used to downloading my books to my Kindle for IPAD this was another reason why it took me so long to finish.

The long and short of it about this book is following a family and their ancestral home in New England taking place in the late 1800s. At first with describing the home and how the family (Pyncheon) came to own the land that the home was built on. At first I was intrigued since it sounded like something supernatural was taking place. But then the book jumps to the current resident of the home ( Hepzibah, say that 10 times fast) and I lost interest. There are additional characters here and there, but nothing really works. The best part of the book is when Hawthorne describes the grounds and house that sits there.

Other than the house, the whole book moves at a plodding pace.

We have the characters of Phoebe Pyncheon who moves in with her cousin Hepzibah and of course has all of the men falling for her.

I don't know what to say really besides the fact the flow was terrible throughout. Nothing happens and there's a lot of well maybe this is haunted (the colonel's chair) but nothing is really sad for certain.

I wish that the setting had come more alive for me while reading this book. I just couldn't picture things well at all and had to look up pictures of the house to get things more fixed in my mind while reading.

The ending was a big shrug from me. I am so glad I can finally stop seeing this thing on my currently reading list. ( )

It is often enlightening to read something once again after a few decades.

I came across Merrill’s English Texts, The House of the Seven Gables, and was delighted to find more than just the original book. Published for use in schools, there are questions and topics for study after the main book as well as an amusing price list. Although we have more literature that has been added to our list of important works in the past 100 years, the questions for students show the depth of thought put into composition, style and other topics of discussion. One of my favorites is under Style where it asks the reader to state the moral of the story and to […Find the verse in the Bible and] Learn it.

I particularly enjoyed the notes in the back explaining certain words and expressions, some of which may have been new ideas at the time but are obvious to anyone today. The explanation of “Jim Crow” had much more to be added in the years after 1907 but I was amazed to find that the term was once applied to gingerbread men. I found it enlightening in terms of history and in terms of understanding my own New England roots.

We are often so taken with new works that we have forgotten the humor and beautiful writing of authors who create what are deservedly called classics. The style is not for everyone, since our fast-paced world today doesn’t allow for lengthy setting of scenes or taking in details. Even the lulls in the story are filled with interesting bits of historical and political observations that are relevant to current events.

Since we seem to have some time at this moment in history, we could channel surf our days away, or we can take advantage of the online resources and finally get around to reading those books we have wanted to read for so long. ( )

Half-way down a by-street of one of our New England towns, stands a rusty wooden house, with seven acutely peaked gables facing towards various points of the compass, and a huge, clustered chimney in the midst.
