    Description

    The Turn of the Screw is a classic gothic ghost story novella by Henry James.

    Summary of the Book

    When a young woman accepts a job as a governess for two beautiful, yet strangely aloof and silent children named Miles and Flora, she has no idea what horrors she will find in the estate. She spots eerie figures just off the corner of her vision, who glare down from dark towers and dusty windows. They say nothing, but each day, they grow closer. The governess is terrified, and she realizes that the four phantoms want the children. They desire nothing but the corruption of their souls, their minds and their bodies. However, that is only the threadbare part of the problem. The children do not seem to fear these apparitions. In fact, it was almost as if they want to be possessed. This horrific tale boasts dozens of interpretations and it is largely considered to be Henry James’ best work.

    Not a book for all

    "The turn of the Screw" is famous for its ambiguity and it is not a book that will be enjoyed by all. The language is Victorian and one has to resort to a dictionary time and again to understand the significance of the idioms. The flow of story is slow and the casual reader might be tempted to drop it mid-way. However if you are willing to take up the challenge, you will find in your hands a story that is enjoyable and keeps the reader in suspense till the last sentence.

    Good Read!

    This is a good read for any of those who are patient enough to let the story unfold.

    Henry James has written a fairly decent book that keeps the reader guessing.

    Flipkart has been punctual by delivering the book in a day, although it was expected to deliver two days later. Good work Flipkart.

    My only complaint is that Flipkart has wrongly stated that this book is 654 pages long, whereas the book has only 160 pages.

    4 star!

    I saw The Others and then I came to know it's based on this perhaps very famous book.

    The Ending is really like twisted..!

    Must read for horror fiction fans.
