Publisher's Summary

Released in our new Young Adult Classics format, Henry James's classic ghost story is a masterpiece of the supernatural. The tale is taken from the diary of a governess, who describes her mounting sense of paranoia at the relationship between her two wards and the ghostly figures that haunt the estate.
Menacing, ambiguous and haunted by a pervading sense of evil, The Turn of the Screw is one of the most powerful and enduring tales of the 19th century. Emma Fielding gives a compelling reading of a story in which nothing is certain, and madness lurks around every corner.

IDK if it's me or if this book was really that bad. Number one: I kept falling asleep during the reading of this book. It wasn't very interesting at all. The end was the worst part. Maybe it was the narrator or just the way the book was written. I kept getting confused and had to start the whole thing over at least three times. Ive never had this problem with any of the books Ive listened to with Audible.
