Henry James is without a doubt one of the most aknowledged american novelists. His subtle detailed description of characters, his psychography, his relatively slow, depictive writing and drama, make him one of the most interesting authors of the upper class life at the end of the nineteenth century. Dont expect lots of dramatic peaks in these books, it is the feelings and ideas that mostly change, rather than the outside world. What Maisie knew is in my opinion his absolute masterpiece, though romantics will probably shed some tears with the wings of the dove and the portrait of a lady as well... the best thing about these complete works series, is you can always pick whatever sounds most interesting to you without having to try out blind by buying one of the standard titles you find in bookstores... and it also lets you realise how much and how well this man wrote, in just one lifetime! My advice to new readers: dont just stick to the novels, try the short stories first! as an introduction to the henry james universe they serve just as well and will probably be less tiring to you... and only once you really got the spirit of the writer, and of course agree with it, which is entirely a matter of taste, go on to the big thick novels! Cause there are of course many who would find them difficult to read in the beginning, wondering all along when the actual action is going to start!

The scanning was again a bit of a mess in some places, numbers appearing instead of words and the characters'names appearing written every time in a different way, but if you are a fun of litterature you are not going to mind this much. As in other posts already said, some editing before the release of the ebook version would be a great idea. But still, you just baught 300 books with 3 euro, so it is ok, considering...
