Turn Of The Screw – Review

Image result for turn of the screw book


I read Turn Of The Screw by Henry James and let me just make something clear right now, its a bit complicated.

The story is great, no doubt about that. Its got the thrill, the suspense and at times it can get a bit confusing. But that is my opinion and I cant say how you might feel about it after reading it.

I felt that the story has a pretty slow pace. And I don’t like to read books with slow pace. But the thing that I liked in this book is the attention it gives to details. Henry James has given a lot of attention to details and I appreciate that.

As far as the spookiness or the creepiness of the story is concerned, I think that it is moderate. Not too much and not too less. It is perfectly balanced.

And I felt that, as one goes on progressing through the story, the reader might hate one of the characters. I certainly did. I think that you might too, if you read this book.

The ending is quite confusing and raises a lot of questions. Its sort pf a cliff hanger.

But at the end of the day, the reader will surely love this book. I sure did.

Also, the readers who do not like fat books will also love this book. The story is pretty short. At least by my standards.


Rating – 4.1/ 5

This was my review and I would like to know what you people think about the book.
