I am a post graduate majoring in English literature and I 've always been quite ready to read stories of different styles. But I found it very much difficult for me to appreciate Jame's The Beast in the Jungle. Of course I cannot deny that man's thought is often interrupted by different kinds of things. But, in my opion, if we are to put man's psychology on paper, we should not directly record these interruptions. on the contrary, we should somehow find an easier way to take it down. Maybe as a language learner, I am not qualified enough to make that comment. But anyhow it's my personal opinion as a reader of Jame's story. <br>thanks for all your attention.<br>Michelle

I just finished Beast in the Jungle by Henry James, and I want to express my sheer disappointment. I had some trouble with many sentences - however, after an intent and patient examination, I grasped their meaning - only to follow a story that wears out when it should take off.

Heed my warning and skip this book by all means: it is not worth the strain.
