It was pretty exciting near the end.

I was reading Turn with the idea that the sexually repressed governess was hallucinating that ghosts were threatening the children.

She seemed unbearably cruel to the children and I was having a lot of trouble reading it.

The essays I read had different interpretations of the story. One critic argued there really was something wrong at Bly. It could be there were ghosts or the children were already troubled by the Quint and Jessel situation. Then the governess was honestly, if poorly, trying to deal with it.

That made it less painful to read. She was drama queen, either way.
