The Scarlet Letter

Helpful Score: 1


I read this book in high school so that would have been.. 4 years ago? Oh boy. This is an excellent book, the story is set in colonial New England and revolves around 3 main characters: Hester Prynne, Reverend Arthur Dimmesdale, and Roger Chillingworth. The story takes the reader straight into the drama of the damning of Hester Prynne and her heinous act of forbidden passion, Reverend Dimmesdale's secret guilt ridden conscience, and Chillingworth's malevalent ways.

This is an excellent book and once you've read this you'll begin to notice references made to this book from tv, movies, and other medias. A must read and well worth your time.
