On the other hand, Young Goodman Brown and The Birthmark are excellently told, as those works really needed that level of detail, the former being a mix between fantasy and horror, and the latter involving elements of science fiction.
The plot isn't all that magnetic but the writing brings out many flavours of the puritanical life in Boston around the 17th century. The character development, except perhaps that of Roger Chillingworth, is first rate. Its brash historicity, according to me, is a wonderful thing & matters your learn about the society at the time are very insightful. Since romance underpins the themes of sin, guilt, revenge, & the psychological implications of these primeval human emotions, I'd have to say that the plot is more dramatic than you might expect at times - but this could be an aspect of my own sensibilities than that of the novel.
Its a good work to read, so I'd recommend pressing on with the page long sentences & phrase long words.
