This review is from: The Portrait of a Lady (Penguin Popular Classics) (Paperback)
I am usually a fan of 19th Century literature.
I love George Eliot, Wilky Collins and Thomas Hardy to name a few.
However, Henry James' style does nothing for me at all. I find him too wordy and those words don't flow easily.
I found reading it quite a chore. The story was unsatisfying too for me, because it went nowhere. Isobel Archer never escaped the course she set out on. Neither did she seem to want to. What actually was the point of the story, I wonder?
This was my first, and will be my last, Henry James book.
