Book Review: Turn Of The Screw

Books (11).png

This one now marks off the 10th book from my list of 30 books that I want to read before I’m dead, that is to say 30 years old. Now this book was more of recommendation than something that I had an overwhelming desire to read throughout my life, but I gave it a go anyway.

It was a pretty quick moving story, all about the reaction to irrationality and unnamed dread, but I must admit that it really wasn’t my cup of tea, horror and suspense isn’t generally my bag, and in this case it wasn’t either. It wasn’t poorly written, but it just didn’t grab a hold of me the way that I had hoped for, and probably won’t be reading anything else by Henry James in the future.
