Both times I've read this book I've done so only because it was assigned. This time around, I appreciated Hawthorne's writing much more, and he does an excellent job of moving the plot along without making the ending totally obvious. It's not an easy read, but it's a worthwhile one, if only for the lesson reminding us to learn from the past but live in the present.
