I know this is a classic and my comments will be "duh" for the truly educated...but for the rest of us...
I decided to listen to/read this book for the first time in preparation for a bookclub selection of Mrs. Osmond. James' narrative style takes a little getting used to but the effort is rewarding. His scenes are captivating and characterizations are powerful. For me, this novel became a page turner with a plot that was engaging. Do not waste ANY time on Mrs. Osmond.
The narrator did not have a British accent which was important to me because the main character is an American. When the storyline and prose are wonderful, I tend to pay less attention to narrative style and forget any initial bothersome quirks of the reading.
