Description

The Turn of the Screw is a fireside tale of evil and mystery. Filled with extraordinary drama, Henry James' story has been widely popular ever since its publication in 1898. It also inspired a film, a play, and an opera. A governess has been hired to care for two orphaned young children in their uncle' s English country home. But soon after she meets the boy and his sister, the governess begins to see fearful apparitions. With growing alarm, she must wonder about the target of the ghostly presences. Are they haunting her, or the sweet, innocent children? Henry James gives no answers to this question. Instead, he leaves the listener to ponder the relationships between evil and horror, imagination and reality.

Professional reviews

"Flo Gibson's sandpapery voice is wonderful for this delicious classic ghost story. Her narration combines all the artful and engaging elements of the best storytellers--excitement and enthusiasm as the story begins and disturbing, chilling creepiness as the story develops. Listeners will be drawn in and unable to stop listening as Gibson delivers the tale of the two children, the apparitions of a man and a woman who may be menacing them, and the governess who fears for them. Are they really ghosts? Is the governess mad? What about the children? Gibson keeps the story riveting and listeners guessing. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine"
