The Blithedale romance, Том 1;Том 570. Nathaniel Hawthorne. So, "The Blithesdale Romance" certainly isn't Nathaniel Hawthorne's best work but I still found it interesting nonetheless. It had an odd way of getting at the story - in a sort of meandering way.

I studied The Scarlet Letter at high school many years ago, and decided I would explore other books that Hawthorne has written. I struggled to complete this book. Nineteenth Century novels do tend to have a slower pace and much more detailed physical detail than modern novels, but this one was too slow and patchy in its narrative structure, even for someone like myself who enjoys Victorian literature.
The pace was too slow, there were too many digressions, and I struggled to pick up on the novels main themes and concerns. The characters were not engaging, and the tensions between characters were insufficiently developed. There were glimpses of the writer, Nathaniel Hawthorne, who was so piercingly perceptive in The Scarlet Letter, but not enough to sustain my interest. I looked up on the Internet the background of this novel, and it is apparently loosely based on aspects of Hawthorne's own romantic life. Sadly, that did not create the intensity often found in autobiographical threads. This is not a book I would reread.
To put it mildly, Hawthorne can be a bit of a slog. And I was definitely prepared for that with this lesser known work. I was, however, pleasantly surprised. Not only is it a faster paced, less obtuse work than some he's done, it's also a delightfully Gothic mystery and an interesting commentary on philanthropy and utopianism. It's certainly not as memorable as The Scarlet Letter, but it's a nice little read.
Asking someone to rate a classic is pretty ridiculous. If I give it less than 5 stars, it says more about me than it does about the book! That said, I think an annotated copy might have been more useful for me, since there were some aspects of 19th century mores which drive the plot that I never did understand.
Stay with the story til the last page as there are a few good twists in the story line that really pull everything together!!! Great classic
Liked the produce
[Review of Kindle version]: Just to give a general heads-up, unlike many of the free Kindle editions of classic texts, this one is fine. There are only a couple of mistakes in the text, and none that made a headache of reading this edition.

[Review of book]: Before reading the book, I had read reviews that this book feels "mechanical" in its writing. I really didn't get this at all. It may have been that I was too enthralled in the lovely story to notice any rigidity in the writing. The book's storyline is a delight, but ends in an unsettling way. I found myself wrapped up in the romantic, misty mirth of the story, which was offset by a number of the gothic tropes. I cannot express the enjoyment I got out of reading this book, much more so than I remember ever having in reading "The Scarlet Letter." In my opinion, this book is one of those literary gems that many might not hear about, because of being overshadowed by an author's magnum opus. Reading this was a pleasant surprise, and is one of the rare books I can see myself revisiting on a yearly basis, which is an appreciable statement given the length of my reading list.

If you like romantic (in the sense of ideals) stories, are interested in utopian visions, or wish to understand the modern "dystopian-turn" in the literary landscape, this is a book I would recommend.
A mystery by Hawthorne? Had to read it.
Picking up The Blithedale Romance, I was immediately sucked in by Hawthorne's elaborate prose--but after the first three chapters of painfully detailed description, I was ready for him to get on with the story already. As a result, he lost me for a time. I closed the book and set it aside, picking it up more from obligation than from any real drive to finish the story. The characters and dialog are great--they save the book. The overwrought descriptions make the reader want to dig Hawthorne up and beat him with his own shin-bone.
And the big surprise twist at the end? Not a surprise and not very twisty. Just--mnh.
