    OHMYFREAKIN'GAWD.Why the hell did I pick this up again? Life's too short, you say? You have 200+ other books on your 'to read' shelf and this was sucking your will to read? Give it up! You're right all of it and my answer is my excuse being because I'm freakin' stubborn. ItsHawthorne . I mean how much more New Englandy can you get? I couldn't just--- give up I'd be betraying my countryman Whatever. For a few years, in my younger days, I worked down the street from the House of the Seven Gables a [...]

    The illustrious Pyncheon family had quite a useful reign, (but that was long ago) its founder Col.Pyncheon, a stout, merciless Puritan and able soldier, helped wipe out the scourge, the evil threat of the abominable witches, in the honorable Salem trials of 1692. For his just reward, he happened by pure accident, to take over the property of old Matthew Maule. Still, a splendid , beautiful area , the perfect place to set his building, the magnifient Seven Gables,the Colonel's new mansion, for hi [...]

    Descubrí a Nathaniel Hawthorne a través Herman Melville, uno de mis escritores preferidos. Melville y Hawthorne se hicieron grandes amigos a punto tal que Melville le termina dedicando su obra cumbre Moby Dick: "En señal de admiración a un genio este libro está dedicado a Nathaniel Hawthorne." Melville siempre destacaba, un atributo sobresaliente de Hawthorne que según sus propias palabras "Es la negrura en Hawthorne lo que tanto me atrae y me fascina. Los grandes genios son parte de los t [...]

    Note, May 14, 2016: I edited this review just now to make a slight factual correction.During the Salem witch hysteria of 1692, when real-life accused witch Sarah Good was about to hanged, she pointed at one of the witch hunters, Rev. Nathaniel Noyes, who was looking on approvingly, and shouted, "I'm no more a witch than you are, and if you murder me, God will give you blood to drink!" (an allusion to Revelation 16:6). Years later, Noyes suffered a throat aneurism, and did die literally drinking [...]

    This is the worst book ever written in the English language that is somehow celebrated against far superior novels from the same era, somehow earning him enough respect to have his crusty face emblazoned onto the Library of Congress.If the story were to take place in modern day Atlanta, it would be about some inbred, old money steel magnolia losing her shit up in Buckhead, and dragging her family down with her while she squanders what little remains of their inheritance on palm readers and telem [...]

    A clueless group here in made this this its book of the month read under the "Horror" genre when there is no horror in it. The author called it, instead, a "Romance" but there is no romance in it, either, except a brief declaration of love for each other of two protagonists towards the end with all its unmistakable phoniness ("How can you love a simple girl like me?" Duh, all men profess to love simple girls!).This is actually a sex book written under the atmosphere of sexual repression during [...]

    The House of the Seven Gables begins with a preface by the author that identifies the work as a romance, not a novel. That may be the author's preference, but I think most romance fans will be disappointed if they read this book. The book is a classic by a famous American author, so it deserves to be read. Once you finish the book and look over the complete plot, you can see how romantic love has healed a 200-year family curse. Therefore, in that regard it is a romance. However, the experience o [...]

    4 stars for first read; 3.5 for secondIn late September I toured the House of the Seven Gables in Salem, Massachusetts. Our guide, a knowledgeable and entertainingly wry young man, spoke of two additions made to the house after the woman who bought it decided to turn it into a tourist attraction: a room to emulate Hepzibah’s little shop and a secret stairway not mentioned in the text that Clifford must’ve used to be able to suddenly appear the way he does. The latter intrigued me since I did [...]

    This narrative, published in 1850, starts with a preface by Hawthone explaining his concept of the Romance, which is to be distinguished from the Novel because it provides the writer with greater latitude to takes risks. The Novel is somehow more straightforward, more conservative, less flexible as a vehicle for experimentation.The first chapter gives us the backstory in a kind of lump sum. Most contemporary novelists probably write such a backstory but often cut it, since, lacking action and ch [...]

    I'm so glad you're dead, Nathaniel Hawthorne.So this is a classic horror novel in which nothing at all happens for a few hundred pages except the description of some house, an old hag selling oatmeal, and some guy who may or may not have hypnotized the other chick who's boarding there. There might be something scary but I was too busy falling asleep to notice. If Hawthorne were alive, he'd be a zombie, which I'd totally be okay with because then he could get shot in the head by zombie experts. T [...]

    … for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation… Exodus 20:5It has always been a wonder for me why punishment should be as such. Why is this idea of making descendants suffer for their forefather’s mistakes so recurring in literature? Including this passage from the bible, there are countless other works which involve this sad practice; Nathaniel Hawthorne’s The House of Seven Gables is one of the more ren [...]

    An old US colloquial house with seven gables that seem to be mocking heaven. Seven main characters. The old ugly Hepzibah Pyncheon running a candy shop to earn a living for herself and her war-torn brother Clifford Pyncheon. Her face is ugly because she has to squint to see. She needs to wear eye-glasses but she is so poor that she cannot afford to have one. So customers are few except the young adorable boy Ned Higgins who loves gingerbread cookies that he comes back again and again to the cand [...]

    This book dares you to read it. I hadn't thought about putting it up here, because, in fact, I have never finished it. I have the distinction of having had the book assigned to me no less than three times in various college courses, and never once read the whole thing. The problem is I do not care about a single character in this novel. A rich family is cursed because they screwed over a poor family? Great. Where's the conflict? I hate rich people, and didn't want to see them redeemed.The Daguer [...]

    I adore this book. I recall reading it for the first time in my twenties, picking it up at random and being amazed how lively and picturesque the writing was, so different from the dreary Scarlet Letter I remembered from high school. The decline of the Pyncheon family after the curse of old man Maule, a fiercely independent man who’d staked a claim on land and a certain well which the progenitor of the Pyncheon clan, the old Puritan, desired to have for his own. Eventually he'd had Maule hung [...]

    Hawthorne is the equivalent of nudging someone and winking without actually thinking of anything interesting, risque, beautiful, or even useful. It is sad that a man with such a voluminous writing ability was seemingly devoid of any notion of what to do with it.

    3'5 estrellasA pesar de las muchas recomendaciones y las buenas críticas leídas, cuando empecé este libro iba un poco a ciegas. No sabía si se trataba de una novela costumbrista, gótica o de terror, y tampoco conocía la pluma de Hawthorne, por lo que temía que se me atragantara. En mi opinión, la novela mezcla un poco todos estos elementos. No llega a dar verdadero miedo ni a ser una historia de fantasmas propiamente dicha (por suerte para mi), pero si que existe este aura extraña y sof [...]

    Hawthorne labels his work a Romance rather than a novel, thus giving himself permission to mix an element of the “Marvellous” into the narrative. The work itself begins with sprinkled oddities - a hint of witchcraft and necromancy, a mysterious and possibly supernatural death, the presence of a perpetual family curse, a puzzling mirror rumored to show unusual characteristics, a house itself that is personified. Hawthorne’s language is exquisite, very early 18th century-ish, almost courtly, [...]

    Just a quick comment about Hawthorne's claim this is a "romance". Many posts here misunderstand the author's definition of the word romance, thinking he means the kind of book found in the romance section of the modern bookstore that includes Nora Roberts and the like. This is NOT the kind of romance the author is claiming for this novel. More closely akin to what Hawthorne means for the modern reader would be "fantasy", that is, not a story of realism, but arising from a creative liberty which [...]

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

    4.8"¿Por qué tienden los poetas a elegir a sus compañeras sin atender a que exista una similitud de dotes poéticas entre ellos, sino por unas cualidades que tanto podrían hacer feliz al artesano más rudo como a esos artífices ideales del espíritu? Probablemente sea porque, en su elevada situación el poeta no necesita de contacto humano, pero le da miedo descender algún día y sentirse un extraño" Esta es la primera novela gótica que leo con plena conciencia de que lo es, es decir, sa [...]

    No sé si asegurar que el libro me decepcionó, porque de cierta manera sabía a qué me estaba aventurando desde que lo empecé. Había escuchado una infinidad de veces que el libro no era para nada ligero, que tenía una cantidad exagerada de relleno innecesario, descripciones eternas de nimiedades que no le aportan a la trama, entre otras cosas. Creo que el problema radica, en principio, en que ésta es una novela gótica cuyo foco está en un drama familiar, pero no puede definirse plenament [...]

    EL marketing ha dañado mucho esta novela. No es necesario tratarla de terror y poner siempre de imagen un caserón tétrico. NO HAY NADA DE TERROR.Muy pausadamente narra como en la actualidad una familia ha quedado gafada por culpa de sus antepasados, los que construyeron tal casa. Y todos tienden a encontrarse en esa mansión parecido a la atracción de un imán. Acabando siempre mal.Destacar la buena escritura, descripciones y comidas. Es una novela relajante, simplemente.

    I can see why English teachers like this book. The vocabulary alone makes it worth reading. Plus it's full of all that theme and symbolism that English teachers love to talk about.Unfortunately, Nathaniel Hawthorne liked to talk about theme and symbolism too, which makes this book feel like one long treatise on theme and symbolism. I mean, seriously, Nathaniel Hawthorne goes on and on and on and then on some more about the stuff. He doesn't just tell you once that it is a degradation that Hepzib [...]

    When I finished this story, I found it hard to care about it. It is my least favorite of Hawthorne's books. The characters were mostly unlikable, the plodding plot fattened up with many pages of useless description that added nothing. It was a relief to be done with it, an achievement that can only be attributed to my stubborn refusal to stop reading once engaged, no matter how annoying the material. :o) It does feel irreverent to be trashing Nathaniel Hawthorne. But time would be better spent r [...]

    H:\bookies\not essential\Nathaniel Hawthorne - The House of Seven Gables [unabridged:]I am becoming bored stiff with the shrill voice (this is Joss audio) prattling on about the whys and wherefores and not getting ON WITH THE STORY. If it's the same shrill female who narrates the actual story I will ditchLater - it IS that same glass-shattering narrator. Sorry Mr Hawthorne, but my ears will only lay a guilt trip on me if I proceed.

    Synopsis:"Nathaniel Hawthorne's gripping psychological drama concerns the Pyncheon family, a dynasty founded on pious theft, who live for generations under a dead man's curse until their house is finally exorcised by love."Initially I found myself very pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this book set in 19th century Puritan New England. There was an eerie quality, a quiet subtle sense of  suspense that drew me to find answers without a heart pounding urgency to solve the mysteries behin [...]
