K.M.Parkinson, Roehampton Institute of Higher Education. 'Although I don't expect to use the text myself at the moment, I'm greatly pleased to see these early examples of the genre being published in so accessible a form.

Hawthorne is divided between pity and anger and most of the novels in this book are so grim that it does make for a heavy read, despite the outstanding prose and the masterful attention to psychology and detail, with an ironic note that gives some much-needed relief. Not enough, though. And it is saddening, on reading of these things and condemning those short-sighted bigots, to know that we have no reason to be smug, as in our own times, centuries later, there are still so many people around the world who,at this very moment, are killing and torturing other human beings in the name of religion. Dawkins does have a point!
