  • Women's Rights in Puritan Times Dec 3, 2009
    by sarab

    I am not done with the book - I am about half-way through. But I am enjoying this book even though the book is a realistic view of women's rights set during the 1600's America. It is not easy reading but the book has given me topics to review and contemplate.

    I found ?The Scarlet Letter? to be first rate. Well written and descriptive of the period. I?m sorry that it took me so many years to get around to reading it. Most people read it in high school.

    This is a great classic book. I really enjoyed it when we had to read as a class in highschool my first year. It's great for class discussions.

    I really loved this book in college. Hester really is a hero readers can admire. She shows more courage and dignity than any of the male characters in the book. Certainly she has flaws, but her strength over shadows them. This story of love and redemption is a classic tale that should be read by everyone.
