Title: The Scarlet Letter

Author: Nathaniel Hawthorne

Date I Finished Reading: March 20,2012

My Rating: 4/5

The Scarlet Letter is not a new thing. It has been around for quite some time.  If you are anything like me, you probably expect this book to be boring, dry, maybe even pointless. But I was wrong! Hawthorne is an exceptional author and presented his plot well. The characters are well-developed, and symbolism is used both generously and effectively. Yes, it is written in an older, more eloquent form than we are used to, but reading this type of writing style can actually be very beneficial to us! Hawthorne does an exceptional job at displaying the toll tat sin and guilt can take on a person (displayed primarily through the character of Arthur Dimmesdale) as well as the importance and freedom of repenting your sins to God and to others…
