I can't think of a word to describe the reaction from the townspeople?
Their gossiping about the Rev...
Suprised... I'm stuck
-A Rev comes to town and the next day the whole town talks about the Rev
I can't suggest a word to describe the townspeople's reaction without knowing the context. In what story or book does this scenario occur?
The Minister's Black Veil
by: Nathaniel Hawthrone
its on page 2142
The place where I have to find the reaction is only from the Paragraph that starts with: "The next day, the whole village of Milford talked of little else than Parson Hooper's black veil. That, and the mystery concealed behing it, supplied a topic for discussion between acquaintances meeting in the street..."(Hawthrone)
Some words you could use:
Perhaps "confused" and "curious" describe this best.
