by | Read by Emma Fielding, Dermot Kerrigan

Classics • 2.5 hrs. • Abridged • © 1898

James's novella is one of the great intellectual spook tales of all time. The plot: A neurotic governess, believing that the two children in her care are being haunted by malevolent ghosts, seeks to exorcize them. Here Emma Fielding gives an arresting and dramatic performance. Unfortunately, she doesn't give full character to the narrating governess. How can she? This is an abridgment of an unabridgeable text, one so carefully nuanced that every phrase contributes another color to the palette. Y.R. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 98]
