    Here is Henry James' dark comedic masterpiece, written in the final period of his life. Lambert Strether goes to Paris to bring back Chad, son of the wealthy New England widow he plans to marry. But he gradually comes to feel that life in Paris may hold more for him than in Woollett, Massachusetts.

    Erez says: "A very problematic reading"
    "Appalling recording"
    Overall

    Not only is the quality dreadful (I guess you get what you pay for - $6.90), but the narrator has a ludicrous British accent so over-the-top that I truly believed that it was meant to be a joke at first, and, even worse, he does an imitation American accent that is so terrible that I couldn't identify what it was meant to be until I was couple of hours into the recording. Henry James does not deserve this - pay the extra to get a reasonable recording.
