In a contemporary world where people love high tech, fast-moving thrillers, escapist fare of all sorts and celebrity gossip, Henry James provides everyone - with every taste - the perfect introduction to classic literature. Featuring his sometime obtuse but mesmerizing prose, Turn Of The Screw is slim, and ultimately supremely satisfying, even in its refusal to answer questions. If you loved The Sixth Sense, for example, you will be drawn in by the ghost story told here, and wonder over and over who exactly is mad, evil and forever lost. An entertainingly different story, this book will forever be fresh because it is truly a work of lasting art. Do yourself a favor, and spend the few bucks to open up a whole new world; if you are like me, you will be looking for others of James' compelling and infinitely interesting novels, all of which contain moral ambiguities, women who are strong, strange and fascinating, and stories that do far more than provide action and escape - they make you feel, think and wonder.
