The Turn of the Screw is another classic I have been meaning to read for years I didn t know much about it but it has come p a lot lately in my Goodreads discussions and other books I have read I was surprised to find out that it is a gothic horror story Not really sure what I was expecting but I guess I just had the stereotypical classic novel with people in old clothes with an antiue setting on the cover I know I know bad Matthew Don t judge a book by its coverThis book reminded me a lot of The Haunting of Hill House and Rebecca The setting is dark and mysterious there may or may not be supernatural elements in play and you are suspicious of the plot and characters the whole time I think the writing is pretty accessable despite being a classic book I know that some I have encountered are difficult to get into not because of a bad plot just because the writing is flowery and confusing overwritten may be a good word to No Gentleman for Georgina (The Notorious Flynns, use In this case the writing does a very good job setting the tone and developing the charactersI cannot say that the final resolution was my favorite It feltite sudden and I really thought I had missed something or not Thin Blue Smoke understood what happened However after reading a summary of the story online I realized Inderstood it just fine So for me this book was a great journey with a so so endingI recommend this *book to horror fans specifically if you like ghosts and haunted houses Also if you are trying to pad *to horror fans specifically if you like ghosts and haunted houses Also if you are trying to pad classic reading resume this is a decent one to try And since it isn t too long it is not too much of a commitment I seemed to float not into clearness but into a darker obscure and within a minute there had come to me out of my very pity the appalling alarm of his perhaps being innocent It was for the instant confounding and bottomless for if he were innocent what then on earth was I A young governess accepts a position in a beautiful estate in the English countryside in Essex The cosmopolitan ncle entrusts his niece and nephew into her hands and asks not to be disturbed nder any circumstances Bly is enormous the acres endless the house full of corridors and closed doors Our Restoration unnamed narrator couldn t be happier Flora and Miles couldn t be lovelier And then darkness arrives A man standing on a tower a woman in black standing by the lake A strange song and a face at the window I could only get on at all by taking nature into my confidence and my account by treating my monstrous ordeal as a push in a directionnusual of course and npleasant but demanding after all for a fair front only another turn of the screw of ordinary human virtue Having recently watched for the tenth time the marvelous 1961 film the tenth time the marvelous 1961 film Innocents I thought that it was time to read one of Henry James most controversial works once again I always choose this as a part of my summer readings Its sultry atmosphere soon becomes eerie its nderlying sensuality grows within an environment of secrets and charged sexual tension Suffocating and enticing cryptic and provoking Challenging Hungry The 120 Jobs That Wont Chain You to Your Desk uestions are many Is everything real Is the young woman imagining things Has she created a world of her own projecting her frustrationspon the innocents Or has she found herself in a whirlwind of lust and obsession orchestrated by two malevolent spirits who Taken by the Pterodactyl (Dinosaur Erotica) use the children as vessels and instruments Each reader needs to draw hisher own conclusions James is not a writer who provides every solution at the end of his works Even daily mundane issues and snapshots of ordinary life acuire a different colour in each novel The Turn of the Screw is in a league of its own The summer had turned the summer had gone the autumn had droppedpon Bly and had blown out half our lights The place with its gray sky and withered garlands half our lights The place with its gray sky and withered garlands bared spaces and scattered dead leaves was like a theater after the performance all strewn with crumpled playbills Whatever your expectations may be James created one of the best if not THE best Gothic novels of all time Uniue descriptions commanding atmosphere a background full of contrasts and dark imagery The idyllic estate that changes when night falls Two charming gifted ch. إذا كنت من عشاق روايات الرعب والأشباح فإليك برواية دورة اللولب للأديب الأمريكى هنرى جيمس والتى تعتبر من أشد قصص الأشباح عمقاً وامتلاكاً للشعور، وقد صدرت ترجمة هذه الرواية للعربية لأول مرة ع.
