Listener Opinions

    " James's first book following his disasterous experience with the theater. Written almost like a play with a lot of dense dialogue, the repartee can be a challenge at times, but like all late James, the book is ultimately well worth the effort. "

    " Definitely not my favorite James novel. A group of decadents busy arranging their own and others' marriages. "

    " I love my Henry James but this one's a stinker. P.U. "

    " I read this in a cheap paperback edition purcchased at Meijer for $1.99. Best two bucks I ever spent. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rachel | 1/16/2009

    " So...this is not my favorite Henry James book, and I generally love Henry James.

    It's not awful, but it's particularly difficult to follow (even for James, who is famously esoteric with his character's thoughts) and just...not terribly interesting. "

Henry James (1843–1916), American novelist, short-story writer, and man of letters, was born in Washington Place, New York, to a family of distinguished philosophers and theologians.

A major figure in the history of the novel, he is celebrated as a master craftsman who brought his great art and impeccable technique to bear in the development of abiding moral themes.
