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

  • English -

    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:

    awed
    superstitious
    curious
    concerned
    confused

    Perhaps "confused" and "curious" describe this best.
