What the community says about The Turn of the Screw
- "Since Halloween was coming up, I always like to look for a book that is a little scary. What I got here was so much more. It was very eerie and it kept me scared to turn the page, but also wondering what was coming next. It was a good read and the kids in the story are very innocent. "
- "I have always loved Henry James. He was one of my first introductions into literature and I am a big fan. This book is clearly one of those must-reads. It's gripping, well written and poignant. Be aware that it takes some work to get into this novel. It is written in the style of its era. But it's so intriguing and even Gothic. It's been on my self for decades, and I reread every few years because it is that good. "
- "The Turh of the screw is a book that was given as a suggestion for the best books with the essence of literary darkness. While the purchase options are great and many and the reviews are several and good the cover of this book is boring and wouldn't interest me at all."
- "Turn of the Screw is a great book. It is scary, but in a different way, I'd say making it miss the best of list because it's not "make me sleepless" kind of scary like many others are."
