There’s my second book of the Read-a-Thon down, and oh! What a book! Henry James in smaller doses can be just right, and though his prose can take some getting used to, The Turn of the Screw is entirely worth the effort. Such chills! Such dread! It was at times frustrating, however, reading it here at work, for the interruptions were driving me to distraction. James’ prose is such that one needs to keep one’s concentration focused–at least, for me it is.
I also want to take a moment to once again thank all the lovely commentors for their encouragement. I am only sorry that I cannot return the visits to my fellow readers and comment in turn, but my work network blocks such activities. So frustrating!
I have not yet decided on what the third book is to be, but I may go a little lighter before tackling Zola. I am bound and determined to devour Thérèse Raquin tonight, but I will bide my time. For now.
See you all again soon!
