The Scarlet Letter

The Scarlet Letter, something it seems I should have read in high school but did not. I have very mixed emotions about this book. On one hand, I find it very dull and lifeless, only beccause there seems to be no energy or enthusiam behind the writing. I understand it was written in a time when the vernacular was a lot different than it is now, but this to me is just BORING!!! On the flip side of things, I like the plot of the story, a woman who is facing up to her "wrong doings" and going on with her life regardless of the hardships she will have to face until her end of time. Hester Prynne seems to be a little bit "out there" in the way she acts and thinks. The relationship that she has with Pearl is an extremely akward one and I can never tell if she truly loves her child. Anywho, hit me up with some comments and let me know what you people think so far about the book. Cross my fingers it gets better as the chapters go on!
