Turn of the Screw

It is difficult to read the prose style of Henry James. Long, windy sentences with many parenthetical phrases. But the plot is so engaging that I read through to the tragic end.

Creepily Lovely

A quick read, but long enough to captivate you.

My Wife and I Read This to Each Other While Sick in Bed

My wife was seriously ill and recovering from surgery and I was convalescing from having two strokes. We lay in bed and took turns reading this to each other over two or three nights. It was the last book my wife read before she passed.

It’s a great ghost story that we both enjoyed. It holds a special place in my heart, not only because of its sentimental value but also because it was a much needed respite/escape from being sick and anxious.
