Enjoyable

I am new to Nathaniel Hawthorne, I enjoyed the story and the narration. Audio books are a great way to learn the classics

Perfect

I bought this because of the exceedingly cheap price, but this turned out to be one of the best audio books I have listened to in a long time. Perfectly narrated, and a great story.

A classic

If you find yourself either wanting to read Young Goodman Brown or like me, have to read it for an English class, this is a good way to fully understand the story.

I find listening to classics like this a bit easier than just trying to read the words on the page as sometimes there's so much expose that the scene starts to get a bit muddy. For me, listening to it is better than trying to read it.

A Little Known Classic, Beautifully Narrated

This was a classic story I was not familiar with. The devil entices a man on a journey. The man must determine whether the people he knows are who they seem or something different. Brilliantly narrated by the wonderful BJ Harrison.

Wonderful story by Nathaniel Hawthorne.

The story is a wonderful classic by Nathaniel Hawthorne and is performed very well by narrator B.J. Harrison.

I have no idea what I read

It seems full of text with deeper meaning, maybe religious context? It’s an interesting read but without context I feel I can’t appreciate the story the way the author wanted his work to be.

Classic

the narrator aside, Hawthorne is a master, second maybe, only to Edgar Allen Poe. I loved this reading.
