Reviews for Before the Scarlet Letter
APHUnitedNations chapter 1 . 6/28/2012
This is a great idea for a prologue. :) Great job!

Wow! Well written indeed! I have to read the Scarlet Letter for school, and I actually don't mind it, it's a very interesting book. I loved your "prequel" of sorts. :D
RedSavant chapter 1 . 2/25/2010
Holy crap, Scarlet Letter fanfiction. So few people like this book; it's sad how they force it on people in high school, since it's really worth reading and very funny once you get into Hawthorne's style.

Anyway, very well-written, and if not evocative of Hawthorne's writing style - which is damn hard to emulate, I've tried - then it certainly captures his characters. Nicely done!
Owl Emporium chapter 1 . 10/5/2009
That was so beautiful. It was amazing... I loved it. Great job.
Lady Mage chapter 1 . 5/27/2009
Very well done. I finished the book today... you have captured the emotions excellently. I look forward to reading more of your work.

Oh, how sad for them. Well put together, fills in all the juicy fluff tidbits we were all interested in reading.

Nice job. I like how you wrote this and how you kept some of the dialoge in time. Good work.
singeivoire chapter 1 . 11/10/2007
So very sad!

I always loved The Scarlet Letter when we had to read it back in highschool. I'm glad to see I wasn't the only one!
eriksredrose chapter 1 . 4/26/2006
I loved it! Wonderful beginning to the story!
Nora chapter 1 . 11/27/2003
Oh, my dear dear dear Moria...You had my breath captured every moment. You were discreet yet still implied passion and undying love, and you seem to have captured the air of Nathaniel himself. It was a perfect beginning to the tragic story. I was so glad you wrote it because I had to find a way to grasp Hester Prynne's character without coming off in the right way. The actor playing Arthur Dimmesdale was so impressed with the way I played her...thanks to you. ~Nora

You are an absolutely incredible writer. You have a keen eye for the visuals in the story, and your characters talk like... well... themselves.
Justin Nelson chapter 1 . 10/9/2001
Yeah, I wish that was my e-mail. However, I really enjoyed your story. It flowed very well, with just enough of that old english flair to keep it in context. Thanks for the good read. -Justin Nelson
Jestana chapter 1 . 6/23/2001
*shivers* Oh, this is good! I read it a long time ago, but never finished. I don't go in much for these types of stories. I remember bits and pieces of it. Excellent work! Bravo! *applauds*
Alienor chapter 1 . 4/28/2001
This is an excellent, well written prequel. I enjoyed reading it, more so than I actually enjoyed reading The Scarlet Letter! Thanks for writing it.
Kris S3 chapter 1 . 4/3/2001
That was pretty impressive. I remember doing my senior paper on this book. Would've enjoyed it with this added on.
