    The House of the Seven Gables is a fixture in Salem - and seemingly fixed in time. As the ancestral home of the Pyncheon family, its current mistress is Hepzibah Pyncheon, who has retreated behind a wall of false gentility. But into these dreary surroundings comes Phoebe, a country cousin whose youthful energy and sense of romance bring renewed life to the family.

    Overall

    I love Poe and Dickens but Hawthorne, not so much. I found it very hard to finish The House of Seven Gables. I love detail but I tend to lose interest when the author goes into detail about details that have little or nothing to do with the original detail. It drove me to distraction. I felt the characters were flat and that I never really got to know them.
    I thought the reader did an acceptable job.

    When Gregor falls through a grate in the laundry room of his apartment building, he hurtles into the dark Underland, where spiders, rats, and cockroaches coexist uneasily with humans. This world is on the brink of war, and Gregor's arrival is no accident. A prophecy foretells that Gregor has a role to play in the Underland's uncertain future. Gregor wants no part of it, until he realizes it's the only way to solve the mystery of his father's disappearance.

    "Very Good"
    Overall

    My son and I just finished this book and we really enjoyed it. My son is eleven years old. The story moved along at a nice pace and the narrator did a good job with the different voices. If you're looking for a good solid story that doesn't get bogged down in endless detail, this book is a good choice.
