ONE AFTERNOON, When the sun was going down, a mother and her little boy sat at the door of their cottage, talking about the Great Stone Face. The Great Stone Face, then, was a work of Nature in her mood of majestic playfulness, formed on the perpendicular side of a mountain by some immense rocks, which had been thrown together in such a position as, when viewed at a proper distance, precisely to resemble the features of the human countenance. It seemed as if an enormous giant, or a Titan, had sculptured his own likeness on the precipice.
I read 'The Great Stone Face' by Nathaniel Hawthorne. I think this book was okay. Legends of the area tied to the wonders of the Old Man of the Mountain, who is no longer with us, the infamous tragedy of the Willey landslide and Mt. Washington. It is a short story, but the story is still good. A boy waits for the man who looks like a Great Stone Face to appear. In this book there are few people who everyone thinks they look like the Great Stone Face. After reading this book, I learned that to be a person whom everyone admires, I don't need wealth, good speech or strength. Also a story of when Nathaniel Hawthorne himself visited the area.

It’s a short book, though it drags in some places because Hawthorne loves unnecessary details. The book starts off with Hester Prynne, the main character, being led up on the scaffold for the public to gawk at. But he’s very good at making you understand exactly what the characters are feeling. The book is full of his observations about human nature and I’d say it’s worth reading because of that even if you have no interest in the plot. 10 people found this helpful.
