As for the quality of writing, Henry James always comes through. It's always beautiful. Though in this collection of stories, I found his sentences, on the whole, quite long, knotty, and tangled, requiring re-reading at times. As for the stories themselves, ghosts and the supernatural are not exactly my cup of tea, especially the title story - didn't care for it at all. Still, Henry James remains superb in his power of description.
