Turn of the Screw (Version 3)

Book cover
By: (1843-1916)

In Henry James' "Turn of the Screw (Version 3)," readers are transported into a haunting and eerie tale filled with psychological complexities and spine-chilling suspense. The story follows a young governess who becomes convinced that her two charges are being haunted by malevolent spirits.

James masterfully builds tension throughout the narrative, leaving readers on the edge of their seats as they question the governess's sanity and the true nature of the haunting. The ambiguous and unreliable narrator adds an extra layer of mystery to the plot, keeping readers guessing until the very end.

The prose is beautifully crafted, with vivid descriptions that create a sense of unease and foreboding. James expertly explores themes of madness, innocence, and the supernatural, adding depth to the already gripping storyline.

Overall, "Turn of the Screw (Version 3)" is a masterful work of psychological horror that will leave readers questioning reality long after they have finished the book. Henry James' timeless classic is a must-read for fans of gothic fiction and ghost stories.

Book Description:
A gothic, ghost story, you are a jury of one. Is the Governess correct in her assumptions that her charges, two adorable and exemplary children, Miles and Flora are victims of malevolent spirits? As the story unfolds it gets darker and more questions arise than answers. Written by Sandra Cullum

My second time teading this-- and i've seen the 1961 film a few times. Love it every which way. The dramatic reading is very well executed, but the intro and ending for each chapter are bizzarely dramatized as well. a minor irritant; I thoroughly enjoyed listening.

One of the very worst narrators ever! Just plain weird and terminally annoying way of reading. JUST READ THE BLINKIN TEXT IN A NORMAL WAY WITHOUT THE RADIO ANNOUCER ACT!

So glad the narrator did not talk the way she introduces and ends each chapter! She is a very good reader and it was a very strange book, but very captivating.

Creepy and sick. Henry James should have been on his brother's psychiatric couch.

reader was good. Really believable and added a chilling effect to an already creepy and dreamy storyline. She could almost be the main character
