You could start with one of the BOTM for February or any others from the M authors and then post a review in the discussion thread for other books read during the month. What I do is go down the list and see which ones are actually in my library and then I order the ones I want to look at and from there I pick one to read. There are some very good choices this month.
Welcome to the group based on the book 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die. There is a general explanation of the group under the discussion thread Group guidelines.The book(s) of the month (BOTM) that the group is reading are pinned to the top. I hope you will be able to enjoy the group and perhaps join in one or more of the monthly reads. We are currently reading Lady Chatterley's Lover by DH Lawrence and The Spy Who Came in From the Cold by John Le Carre. Our February books are The Wind-up Bird Chronicles by Murakami and Of Human Bondage by Maugham. We begin choosing he next months books about mid month.
Hi! It was a bit goosebump-y especially when she sees the man's ghost for the first time. Actually, I love ghost stories and have read a great many, but only in Bengali (my mother tongue).. found the beast in the jungle, in same book, pretty freaky!!
I too have heard that the book is loosely based on the author's life.
As for the picture...its a family resemblance :-D
Hi Sumanta, thanks for the invite, which of course I have accepted. About The turn of the screw, your are right, it does have to be taken slow, savoured!! It is picking up pace a bit now and am enjoying it. I see you have Wuthering Heights as a plan to read. Its a great book. Happy reading! Regards, Shuva
