is difficult to imagine a better reading. Lloyd James reads quite slowly with slight pauses to allow the listener to take in the meaning. Even though this is one of Henry James' more straightforward works, it is ideal to have these half seconds to absorb the prose. only negative is that this was a cassette recording, and we get the end of side or tape announcements. Audible needs to sort out these issues.

This book's characters just jump out of the narration, it's absolutely wonderful. James' understanding of a certain female character is uncanny. I adored this book and was so sorry when it ended!

If you enjoy well written 19th century classic literature, this is a great choice. It's pretty light, and not quite as intriguing as The Portrait of a Lady, but it still keeps you interested. My only complaint is the narrator's pacing- he reads well, but leaves interminable pauses between most of his sentences. It might be worthwhile to listen to a sample before buying it.
