The Turn of the Screw by Henry James

The Turn of the Screw - Henry James

 

Holy Wall of Text Batman! This short novella took so long to read because I had to put down my NOOK and give my eyes a break. There is a story there buried deep in the paragraph-length run on sentences, but damn if I could follow along well enough to describe it to you. I just didn't care about any of the characters by the end of the story - just too much hysterical females. The kids were appropriately creepy but the ghosts were a let down - they didn't do much other than stand still and stare.
