    In The Master, his brilliant and profoundly moving fifth novel, Colm Toibin tells the story of Henry James, a famous novelist born into one of America's intellectual first families two decades before the Civil War. James left his country to live in Paris, Rome, Venice, and London among privileged artists and writers.

    Overall

    I was eager to read The Master after the New York Times listed it as one of the year's ten best books. After persevering for nearly two-thirds of the book, however, I was unable to endure any more. I found the story tedious, and the style pretentious. As a fan of slow-moving, thoughtfully-written, detail-laden prose, I was reluctant to "give up", but I truly feel this book is over-rated.
