Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Nathaniel Hawthorne (1804 - 1864) was an acclaimed American novelist. He was born Nathaniel Hathorne in Salem, Massachusetts, though he added a "w" to his name to distance himself from his family’s involvement in the infamous Salem witch trials of the 1690s. The trials, along with Puritan culture in general, greatly influenced his writings. He is best remembered for his hallmark novels The House of Seven Gables, and The Scarlet Letter.

Robert Bethune brings many years of acting, directing, coaching and teaching in live theater to his work in audiobooks. He is also a writer, translator, musician, photographer and filmmaker, operating from his studio in southeastern Michigan. When he can be pried out of the studio, he and his wife enjoy getting out into the woods and fields with their dogs - tiny little things at a hundred pounds each! --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.

Format: Hardcover
I love this story! This particular book is very small...smaller than a paperback...and the text is tiny, too. It has a beautiful red cover and a red ribbon page holder. Just beware of the size if you are looking for a full-sized hard cover to complement your library (like I was).

I was very disappointed in the small size. I was expecting the standard size and do not remember anything in the ordering description denoting the size.

I sometimes enjoy these olde classic novels. As with Hardy, it requires a little effort to catch on to the author's eloquent style. It's made even more interesting in that it's based on actual events. Of course, the ending is somewhat of a heartbreaker... typical. I much prefer the most current "Freely adapted..." Hollywood version set to film, starring Gary Oldman as Arthur and Demi Moore as Hester, which is a rare gem in that Oldman doesn't get killed off in this one.
