"The Minister’s Black Veil", performed in a fittingly reverential tone by Walter Zimmerman, is among Hawthorne’s most venerable short stories, possibly for its allegorical nature and possibly because it lends itself to multiple interpretations. What this brief moral audiobook does affirm is the presence of "those sad mysteries which we hide from our nearest and dearest".

One of those "why do I have to read this" books
What disappointed you about The Minister's Black Veil?
There was pretty much nothing interesting in the story to me. The writing was good, but the story was not compelling. I'm not a fan of this style, why read this one when there are more interesting stories by other authors in this same genre.
What could Nathaniel Hawthorne have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Had a better conclusion.
What didn’t you like about Walter Zimmerman’s performance?
The performance was fine, I think he did the best possible with this source material.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
The quality of the writing was very high, just not a good story.
Any additional comments?
Skip it unless you have to read it for school.
