As with all Henry James's writing it is difficult to get going with. The best way to read his work is in very large chunks so that you get accustomed to his convoluted prose and sometimes very long sentences. *The Bostonians" benefits from being a rather simple and straightforward tale which grows on one as the story gathers pace. His descriptions of political and social types of people are as good as Thackeray or Trollope. I enjoyed this book.
