Washington Square (Nov. '07)

Washington Square, by Henry James - Our book club recently read "Reading Lolita in Tehran" and this book was mentioned many times. As I'd never read any Henry James I decided to try it out. I enjoyed it, but not as much as my favorite classic ("Pride and Prejudice"). I liked Dr. Sloper at first although his cruelty does become more evident later and I generally disliked him by the end. I found however that I couldn't really get attached to Catherine, nor care too much about her story. I'm not sure if it was her character or the writing style that contributed more to that.
