Sintesi dell'editore

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.

Romance and Intrigue

This Nathaniel Hawthorne classic is a timeless romance skillfully narrated by the matronly voice of Roslyn Alexander. Her voice pairs well with the story's matron, Hepzibah Pyncheon, to give the feeling as if she is relating her family history herself. Having actually read this novel in the pre-audiobook era and then tour the house itself in Salem, I found that this "book" brought back great memories. Those who enjoyed Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre and similar romance novels will never be disappointed by this classic.

Not for Me

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.
