I had two major issues with this book The first is format I ve loved some books that use a letter writing or diary format in fact some of my favorite books have unreliable narrators so they often use a letter or diary format Unfortunately for The Turning the use of letter writing just isn t well done Jack doesn t write at all like a teenager I mean AT ALL It is really disconcerting He also freuently tells the reader about something that was told to him So you get things like Sophie let me tell you about what Linda told me Too much of the story seems force fit into the letter writing format and it just doesn t fit thereThe second is that the book is just boring and there is no compelling plot twist or interesting ending It just ends The book takes the basic premise of Henry James Turn of the Screw but it doesn t follow through with the creepy ending that James story has The Turning literally just ends and the overall story isn t remotely interesting at all Anticancer get things like Sophie let me tell you about what Linda told me Too much of the story seems force fit into the letter writing format and it just doesn t fit thereThe second is that the book is just boring and there is no compelling plot twist or interesting ending It just ends The book takes the basic premise of Henry James Turn of the Screw but it doesn t follow through with the creepy ending that James story has The Turning literally just ends and the overall story isn t remotely interesting at all

It s cold in here she saidI know I m freezing I saidBut you re sick she said I m just deadYou re dead I saidYou already knew that she saidI am seriously sick I said Is this really happeningThis is really happening she saidOnce she said that a lot of things seemed settledand what exactly is settled well that this epistolary retelling of The Turn of the Screw will lose a lot of the nuance of its source material for one and that while it isn t really as bad as everyone says it is it is definitely skewing towards the younger end of the teen age range and doesn t really appeal to an adult audience at all even though adults are the only readers likely to have also read henry james so who exactly is this for dunno but it opens with an evil bird and then it has precocious children and annoying teenagers writing info dump lettersso kind of a non starter for mebut not terrible
