    Not quite what I was expecting (3 1/2 stars)

    I started out this book thinking it would be a horror story, so I was expecting to be scared. What I got form this book was quite different. It's not clear whether the ghosts exists or they're just in the governess' mind. Something that made this book difficult for me to get through was James' writing style. Often the sentences were rather long and complex, and he used 10 words were maybe 2 or 3 would do. That being said, it was an interesting book and I'm thinking it's one that would be better after reading it a second time. If you're looking for a book that presents a puzzle that you can think about long after you've finished it, give this one a go. Just don't expect it to be scary.

    Masterpieces

    Henry James is, without a doubt, one of the best storytellers of all time. Highly sophisticated, his complex themes are set in precise language that brings out the strong psychological interplay of the plot. After reading The Beast in the Jungle I could not stop thinking about it. If you like complicated, thought-provoking writing, this is for you.
