The Scarlet Letter, published in 1850, is an American novel written by Nathaniel Hawthorne and is generally considered to be his magnum opus. Set in 17th-century Puritan Boston, it tells the story of Hester Prynne, who gives birth after committing adultery, refuses to name the father, and struggles to create a new life of repentance and dignity. Throughout the novel, Hawthorne explores questions of grace, legalism, sin and guilt.

I liked that. I liked it. This year I have been reading one of my favorite books in my English course. It's slow to begin, but in the middle, it gets better. It's a little slow, with a good story behind it, like most older American literature.

Not much to say. I really like it. I didn't think it was hard to find out who the dad was but everyone in my class didn't know for a while.
