The House of Seven Gables isn't really about an evil house, any more than The Scarlet Letter is about an evil wizard. It's a character-based story about people who live with the Puritan legacy. If you like Nathaniel Hawthorne's other works, you'll like this sweet, nostalgic story, but it isn't exactly action-packed.

'Haunted'? 'Cursed'? Good grief. Remember that it was written in 1850 and don't go looking for a thrilling Hallowe'en read here! Quite verbose, as novels of that time were, it takes awhile - a long while, to develop. Not one of my favourites.
