The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne

I give this book 2.5 out of 5 stars!

Description: Set in the harsh Puritan community of seventeenth-century Massachusetts, this tale of an adulterous entanglement resulting in an illegitimate birth engendered the first true heroine of American fiction.

I hate giving classics bad reviews.  This book was not for me.  Nothing captured my attention and I found that I had to force myself to read it.  If it had been any longer I would have stopped.   It did catch my interest a little in the end, but not enough to redeem the book in any way.
