I read it but it took me a long time and I didn't understand it completely. I also got bored while reading.
It was a bit hard to understand the vocabulary, but once I understood the context it was interesting to read the background of the story.
I listened to it some, and then paused it to read over the part I had listened to. After I had read it, I looked up any words I did not know, and read it again to make sense of the sentence.
I found that reading this was kind of bizarre on how it was formatted and how it was written. I also found it bizarre on what the story was about and I couldn't picture what was going on in my head or at least I couldn't follow it.
The language that the Scarlet Letter is written in is very hard to read. It took me a very long time to get through the introduction, so next time im going to listen to an audiobook instead.
Just yesterday I finished a book written in an early 1900s England style. Reading and comprehending usually isn't that difficult to me as my vocabulary is large and my study of Latin helped supplement that. When I was reading, I highlighted and wrote notes on ideas I deemed important.
I had a hard time reading this section of the Scarlet Letter. For such a dense text, I thought it was a bit much to read that many pages in one night. I'm going to have to set aside a longer period of time to read and I will also have to look at other sources to fully understand what's going on in the story.
I thought the text was very dense, and after I while I felt my eyes moving along the page without my absorbing the material. I think, in the future, I'll take it in chunks, separated by my other homework.
I found it difficult to read because I wasn't used to the language used, and I'm accustomed to books that don't make me think as much, or have to re-read in order to understand it.
I think the main challenge I had with reading the text was the pure density of it. I'm really excited to read this book though!
I found that it was incredibly hard for me to stay focused on the text. I just could not get into and was getting very distracted. In order to succeed during our unit on this unit I am going to have to put my head down, and just cram it out. I can't let myself get distracted by little things. I really hope that the book isn't as dry as the introduction...
I thought it was kind of hard to understand, and I had to read it twice to be able to understand some of it.
It took a while to read, but listening and reading along helped me a lot. I got a little bit bored, but I think that it will pick up after the first bit.
So far I've found this book to be a tricky read. To me it's the kind of book that you read but none of the information really sticks in me head; therefore, it forces you to re-read in order to really process what you're reading and allows for more understanding of the book.
I appreciate the language because it is very intelligent; however, because the language is structured so differently from modern English, the text is much harder to read.
I zoned out while reading it so I had to read part of it over again. I also got distracted by other things.
It took me awhile to read it but I actually got into the intro. I didn't just rush though like I do every other intro. Reading about the Custom House confused me because of the language but after awhile I started to understand it better. I felt bad for Hawthorne because he got fired for simply wanting to write a novel. Overall it eventually put me to sleep.
I thought the reading was dry and there were a couple words that were new to me. Also I couldn't fully understand the reading. I know that I will have to reread to understand better.
I feel that the book was hard to understand because of language. To me there were some new words that was hard for to understand.
I didn't understand the book because of the language. To me some of the words were kind hard for me to understand
I thought the text was very dense and I found myself losing interest after some time. I think I'll have to break up the reading in the future instead of attempting to complete it all in one sitting.
I found it hard it hard at points to focus on what I was reading. It didn't pull me in enough to keep me focus on it making hard to put together what I read. Also the language used didn't help either.
I found the language more difficult to understand, in part because of the word choice, but also because of the different expressions he uses that we don't have today.
I agree that the text was very uninteresting, dense and difficult to read and keep up with.
The text took time to understand since it was really different, I think that will hinder my experience reading the book.
I found it was very difficult to understand. I honestly tried to read all of it but I couldn't get through the last few pages due to other homework. But I found the language very difficult and the format of how the words were placed isn't modern at all. I found it so stressful honestly.
I began reading it and found it difficult to understand. I will need to find other ways to comprehend what's going on.
I read the Sparknotes of the intro first, then read the actual intro itself. The Sparknotes summary and analysis helped me figure out what was happening. I got a little bored around page 30, but I did finish it. I thought this amount of pages to read was a little too much, because it took me a long time to finish it.
I read it, but it was very difficult to understand and keep up with. It also wasn't very interesting.
I felt the introduction was very lengthy and monotonous. Sometimes it was hard to tell exactly what the author was talking about, and he seemed to use an extravagant amount of detail.
I found the text difficult to read. The story itself wasn't that boring, it was just difficult to comprehend, so I tended to zone out. After I read the text, I looked at summaries to help clear it up.
I found that I was able to understand what the author attempted to communicate if I focused. However, the introduction took me a long time to read, so in the end, I had difficulty maintaining critical consideration of the text. For this I believe that I misunderstood the last several pages of the reading.
I tried to read the intro to the Scarlet Letter and I was completely lost. I was listening to the audio book and following along in the book and I just found myself not even being aware of what I was reading and then I ended up falling asleep and just gave up.
I got through about a third of it before I lost track of what I was reading. The sentence structure is a bit hard to understand.
I felt the reading was somewhat understandable.
I tried to read this 3rd period and was really confused on the language and what was going on.
It was fairly dull and difficult to follow, I had to re-read a lot of what I read. To be fair though, I did not finish the entire reading.
I found the reading to be challenging. The author's extensive vocabulary in every sentence had me reading back over the same lines multiple times.
I thought that the first chapter was interesting because it taked about infedelity. It was a little difficut because of the sentence structure but after re-reading it one or twice or triple times I understood it :) Thank you.
I attempted to read but found the language deterred me from the action of the story. I went to go read about the plot of the introduction and tried to read again but the author uses half a paragraph to say what most authors can say in one line.
I tried reading along as I listened to the audio-book. I found it difficult to stay focused, and I did not finish.
I read the first few pages, and I couldn't remember a single thing from what I read, so I gave up
