Nathaniel Hawthorne, by George E. Woodberry, is one in a series of American Men of Letters. Of its kind it is good. Based on original researches and written by a scholar, it is neither too entirely statistical nor too obstrusively literary for the popular masses. Mr. Woodberry has not tried so much to criticize the books of Hawthorne, as he has written the story of his works and days. In places there is some literary appreciation, but it is wedged in between the scene of the author's life. The personality and the environment of the man, however, are most beautifully pictured. The lonely existence at Salem, the Old Manse, the business activity in Boston and the Salem customs-house and the latter days when this hermit was finally forced out among men—his whole life, in fact, is as lovingly told as if he were the cherished hero of a novel. Without the gossip or malice of a contemporary critic or the tedious hair-splitting of a pedant, the book is excellent as a study of Hawthorne's personality.

    "Har precis startat en provperiod hos Storytel och det är det bästa jag någonsin gjort. Att lyssna ger mig full koncentration på boken samtidigt som jag kan pyssla med annat."

    "Det bästa som har hänt mig på länge. Dessutom lyssnar jag på böcker som jag nog aldrig hade kommit mig för att läsa annars. Jag lyssnar i bilen, på promenaden eller när jag städar."

    "Jag och min man delar familjeabonnemanget och har haft Storytel i 5-6 år. Vi är så nöjda med både appen och Readern. Här finns ett stort bokutbud som passar oss båda!"
