Overview

Originally conceived as a brief, light story about the complications created in her family's social set by a young girl coming of age, the novel expanded into a general treatment of decadence and corruption in English fin de siècle life. James presents the novel almost entirely in dialogue, an experiment that adds to the immediacy of the scenes but also creates serious ambiguities about characters and their motives.

If you enjoy a challenging read and works that require you to focus all of your concentration, this novel is for you. I found that you must carefully read and follow along, or you can quickly be lost in its pages. James requires his reader to question his or her own morality, and decide for themselves what is acceptable within the novel. The type of person you are definately reflects on how you view the plot. I loved it for its complexity and challenge- it isn't for the faint of heart!
