The House of the Seven GablesThe House of the Seven Gables by Nathaniel Hawthorne
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It has been a long time since I read this and it definitely is a book that you don't want to know the ending before you read it.  The suspense adds a lot to the story and helps to counteract the long philosophical passages. I read this in a book group and we all agreed that the house was a character in the book.  It's brooding menace fills the early chapters and you get the feeling that it wants to exact revenge for the crimes done on that spot of earth.
