The House of the Seven Gables is Hawthorne's most humorous novel, it is also the work in which he is most serious in his devotion to the powers of beauty and imagination and his hatred of economic materialism and Philistinism.

The author takes FOREVER to say anything. By todays standards, most readers will find it tedious. I chose it because we visited the actual house in Salem, MA
I have no problems with the narrator. I can't believe he didn't yawn while trying to read this book
Sure- it's a good story, just tediously written. A good screenplay would do wonders.
Not a good choice to keep you awake on a sailing watch, which is why I'm buying audible books.
