On our drive home from the casino, my husband (the English instructor) was shocked that I had never read this story. So, we found it on Libby and #AudioCommute listened to it. I really enjoyed this. It was a nice mix of creepy and suspenseful. Also having moved to New England in the past year, I am glad to read/listen to local authors :)

I don‘t care much for thee‘s and thou‘s. Another book for my class, but this one I‘ve enjoyed far less than the first two. I‘m glad it was short, because much longer and I would‘ve put it down for good. I guess it‘s a good “saint vs. sinner” approach, but really it‘s about Goodman Brown judging all his neighbors for maybe seeing them in the woods with the devil? And then he dies??

Hawthorne is always a difficult read for me because my mind always wanders and I reread everything 2-3 times. Thank goodness this was only 3 issues.

While I was reading I knew that I had read this before, then my son reminded me that he had to read it in junior high and we read it together. 😂

Ye oldie talk makes for boring read. Didn't care for this. No revelations here.

night_shift Also 888 influence! Ha, cool.. though, I imagine 666 would be more appropriate for this story. 5y

It's been a while since I've read something that's entirely allegory! An interesting story about sin vs faith.

Not sure I wholly understood this one. It seems to focus on how all are sinners who give into temptation (and are hypocrites?...I think). I know Hawthorne loved delving into the Puritans lifestyle and think this touches on that as well. ⭐️⭐️1/2 stars.

It's our #ghostsoflitsy discussion! Yay! Some questions to think about: 1. What's up with that ending? 2. How are women portrayed in this story? 3. Does the depiction of spookiness here remind you of other stories? 4. Did it happen? Add your own! #scaretober

Finished this one on @SerialReader as part of the @bookriot read harder challenge. This is a short story that should have been longer. It could have used a little fleshing out.

SerialReader Congrats on finishing! 🎉 Just in case you haven't seen Kate Beaton's Goodman Brown comics: http://www.harkavagrant.com/index.php?id=388 😀 6y
Qemorio @SerialReader I hadn't seen that, it's awesome. Thanks! 6y
LibrarianJen I read this for a religion and literature class. Once you dissect the story It's a great look into the early American Puritans. 6y
Qemorio @LibrarianJen I can see that. 6y
