    A Jealous Ghost Epub Ü A Jealous Epub / jealous free, ghost free, A Jealous book, A Jealous Ghost PDF/EPUBWilson must be a BIG fan of Henry James or at least of James' ghostly masterpiece The Turn of the Screw to have conjured up this rollicking good readWhen you really LOVE a bookin love with also is NO EXAGGERATIONyou really want it never to end do you?? Turning to the last page is akin to preparing for a death in the familythe loss of a friend or a pet Gone but NEVER gone You will eventually go back and reread perhaps numerous times your favourites just as you rake over memories of loved onesBut NO LONGERWe live in an age where writers and fans have thrown down the Barricades of Propriety and created their own Set of Literary RulesI mean fancy stealing somebody else's CreationsAnd Good On Em I say even though much of what they create is pretty appalling stuffAnd ironically this

    A Jealous Ghost Epub Ü A Jealous Epub / jealous free, ghost free, A Jealous book, A Jealous Ghost PDF/EPUBThis is the first time I've read anything by Wilson but as it is a sort of version of The Turn Of The Screw by Henry James I felt James would serve as a sort of go between for usThis book follows the fortunes of a young American student in England who is writing a dissertation on James' most famous ghost story She is very much a deconstructionist and post modernist keen to coin her own critical vocabulary and bring her own unique vision to bear on the text At something of an impasse she takes up a job as a nanny to two young children with an absent presumed deceased mother who live in a country estateAt this point the two stories James' and Wilson's start to blur Things build and build and there is a growing sense of dr

    A Jealous Ghost Epub Ü A Jealous Epub / jealous free, ghost free, A Jealous book, A Jealous Ghost PDF/EPUBI really like this book I just read The Turn of the Screw so came into it completely ready to compare and contrast the two but I ended up getting so swept up in the narrative This book is perfect in its own right and such a clever twist from James’ original still hauntingly familiar but with enough modern differences that I was thoroughl

    A Jealous Ghost Epub Ü A Jealous Epub / jealous free, ghost free, A Jealous book, A Jealous Ghost PDF/EPUBI enjoyed this Sallie an American student in London studying James' Turn of the Screw finds herself in a similar position as the unamed governess of the novel She takes a job as nanny to 2 children in a large old country house and slowly we learn that things are not all quite right with her and that she has a mysterious past Very cleverly done the marriage of the 2 books and Sallie's obsession with Turn makes for scary reading

    A Jealous Ghost Epub Ü A Jealous Epub / jealous free, ghost free, A Jealous book, A Jealous Ghost PDF/EPUBI know this is meant to depict someone with irreparable mental issues but literally every other page contained an action or thought that had me cringing with secondhand embarrassment Pro The author conveyed things well enough that I physically reactedCon Of all things it probably shouldn't have been embarrassment that I felt

    A Jealous Ghost Epub Ü A Jealous Epub / jealous free, ghost free, A Jealous book, A Jealous Ghost PDF/EPUBThe good parts of this book were 3 and the bad parts were 2 so I have been generous and settled on averaging out to 3 Luckily it was of a novella than a full length novel so I could get through it quickly otherwise I reckon it would have been a full on disappointing 2

    A Jealous Ghost Epub Ü A Jealous Epub / jealous free, ghost free, A Jealous book, A Jealous Ghost PDF/EPUBA reworking of Turn of the Screw which is bleak with an element of tragi comedy Sallie an American phd student doing her thesis on James's Turn of the Screw is alone and studying in London She begins to be depressed and decides to take a nanny job looking after two children in a remote country house housekeeper and allBecause this is based on Turn of the Screw you know it isn't going to end well Sallie is so unsympathetic a character and the father of the children so unbelieveable in his sloppiness entrusting his children to a complete stranger with unc
