Good Ghost Story,
This review is from: The Turn of the Screw (Dover Thrift Editions) (Paperback)
As others have already done so I won't reiterate the plot. I found this more of a psychoanalytical read than a ghost story. The writing is beautifully written, if a little overly indulgent and elaborate for my taste. Not being a writer myself, though, I'm not in a position to criticise. Still, once you get used to the prose, which may take a few chapters, it becomes a gripping tale. If you're looking for an eerie story you could also try Edgar Allan Poe or HP Lovecraft.
