The Turn of the Screw, by Henry James

Turn-of-the-ScrewMy husband swears that I read this about a decade ago, so I decided to read it and see for myself if I remembered it. He was right. Parts of this book and certain images definitely came back to me, but I can see exactly why it was less than memorable. The writing is, for the most part, incredibly dull, and the story didn’t really get interesting until the last 30 pages or so. I did more skimming through page-long paragraphs than actually reading, which is okay since mostly I just wanted to see if I had indeed read it before as my husband told me I had. I’m only putting up this mini-review so that when I forget that I’ve read this in the future, I can show myself that I really have.

Note: Originally read (most likely) in 2001.
