I agree with previous ratings, totally over rated and very hard to read. So much so I missed half of the concepts. The Nicole Kidman film "The Others" is alledgedly a film version of it, but I'm successfully picking out all the things that the book doesn't have, and the film does for a presentation at university. It deserves nothing except to be taken off the reading list of any teaching establishment.

Other than both stories taking place in an old English manor house and having 2 children as characters, The Others has no similarity to the Turn of the Screw. The Others was a rip off of a few movies, The Changeling being just one of them. Still, I liked it. It was entertaining.
