There were two reason behind choosing this book, firstly this is one of the books my daughter is studying at AS level and the second I decided to select for our monthly book club.
I was very pleased to have read this novella, found it difficult at first as I am an accomplished skimmer of most books, however this was not possible as the sheer density of language and without intense concentration it would be easy to lose track of events or miss something quite important. The ending left a number of questions to be answered which is good for open discussion along with the Governesses state of mind.
Very much worth reading, however not a beach holiday book.
