The House of Seven Gable is based upon Salem and its historical events. The house itself is dark & gloomy which creates a spooky atmosphere. There is a limited number of characters all created to symbolize the good and the bad and the old generation effects the new generation. I realized while reading the book that the enjoyment is not to race to the end and see what happens but rather to enjoy the flowery prose and sensorial descriptions. The story is quite simple but involves multiple generations of a family doomed by a suspicious curse flung at them by the disguntled landowner of the plot on which the famous house with the seven gables was built.

Hawthorne’s moral for The House of the Seven Gables, taken from the Preface, accurately presages his story. One bright ray of sunshine enters the house when cousin Phoebe arrives for an extended stay to allow unhappy matters in her end of the family to sort themselves out. The full weight of the gloomy mansion of the title seems to sit on the fortunes of the Pyncheon family. While she lightens the lives of Hepzibah and Clifford, she also attracts the attention of a mysterious lodger named Holgrave, who has placed himself near the Pyncheon family for reasons that only come clear at the end of the story.

You gotta like this style of writing or don't take it on. It's very ponderous and plodding. It's preachy -- Hawthorne's ideas of right and wrong are very specific. He has little respect for folks who don't take the well-worn path, and he uses his literary genius to preach his version of good and evil His genius is in his use of language, and the story, while not deep, may cause some reflection. So, why read it? Because the language is stunning, Hawthorne's stories represent the times very well, and in their simplicity, one can absorb the culture of the times. (also see "The Scarlet Letter").

I became a fan of classic literature in grade school. My love of reading was enhanced by my fourth grade teacher, Mrs Carpenter. She challenged me to read a bit beyond the norm for a fourth grader. One of my first "Above and Beyond" reads was this very novel. If you love classic literature, you will love this book. If you want to read a book very quickly you will not appreciate it as much. You need to be someone who wants to immerse yourselef into a place, time and the characters. Will you feel that therre were ghosts in the house or was it purely in the imagination. I highly recommend this book to a lover of the classics. I would also recommend it to smeone who has a bit of patience and wants to try a genre they are not usually reading in.

The writing style of the author which is from a different age. It
takes a while to get use to reading. The author uses a lot of
symbolism within his story.
The House of Seven Gable is based upon Salem and its
historical events. The house itself is dark & gloomy which
creates a spooky atmosphere. There is a limited number of
characters all created to symbolize the good and the bad and
the old generation effects the new generation. This is a story of
witchcraft, curses, murder, greed, wealth and supernatural
elements mixed with some romance.
My favorite part of the story is the flower garden and the way
it affects the various characters.
An oldie but goodie!!

Nathaniel Hawthorne was the great grandson of Judge John Hathorne, the infamous cruel, biased, and possibly self serving judge of the Salem Witch Trials. The themes of witch trials, lost inheritances, family curses, and greed figure in this book. Hawthorne's literary style is flowery, overly descriptive, and tedious, making for a difficult read, unless you are interested in the Salem witch trials and the impact they had on the descendants of the judges, accusers, and victims.

I became interested in this novel when my wife learned that she is a direct relative of the man who owned the house which inspired Hawthorne to write this book.
I was not disappointed with the novel and I quite enjoyed the dark and mysterious tone to it. Perhaps the modern reader won't have the patience to wade through Hawthorne's meandering prose. I admit that this book takes patience but look beyond and you'll recogize the beautiful elements that make it a classic in American literature. In a historical context, his writing is crisp and evocative as he hangs on to the romantic elements in literature. I realized while reading the book that the enjoyment is not to race to the end and see what happens but rather to enjoy the flowery prose and sensorial descriptions. The story is quite simple but involves multiple generations of a family doomed by a suspicious curse flung at them by the disguntled landowner of the plot on which the famous house with the seven gables was built. The "Deus ex machina" ending seems hokey to modern readers but in 19th century literature was virtually expected and highly appreciated. If you're willing to take the time to appreciate this novel, then I recommend it to you.

Such beautiful prose, rich characters and a house that breathes. If it weren’t for the lack of dentistry and antibiotics, living in 19th century New England wouldhave been grand. Hawthorne, Emerson, Melville, Thoreau, and our heroine dear Phoebe Pyncheon. Only Little Dorrit could be as sweet.

I loved Hawthorne's The Scarlett Letter and wanted to love this one too. I found the story line difficult to follow and stopped reading it halfway through, opting instead for a summary of the story. While reading the summary I realized a missed a great deal of the point of this story!
About 80 percent of this book is dedicated to describing the characters' state of mind and the environment around them. Only about twenty percent is actually about actions taken by the characters. I guess if you like that sort of thing, you will enjoy the book. It just wasn't for me.
