This review is from: Black Narcissus: A Virago Modern Classic (VMC) (Paperback)
After many viewings of the film staring Deborah Kerr, I finally decided to give the original book a try. So glad I did, for I could not put it down. Much of the storyline was kept for the film, but the slightly melodramatic overtones are completely missing here to give a real sense of isolation and tension amongst the community of nuns. Super read.
