Publisher's Summary

Daisy Miller portrays the courtship of a beautiful American girl by Winterbourne, a sophisticated compatriot of hers. His pursuit of her is hampered by her own flirtatiousness, which is frowned upon by the other expatriates when they meet in Switzerland and Italy.

Henry James uses Daisy's story to discuss what he thinks Europeans and Americans believe about each other, and more generally the prejudices common in any culture.

Daisy Miller was an immediate and widespread popular success for James, despite some criticism that the story was "an outrage on American girlhood". The story continues to be one of James' most popular works, along with The Turn of the Screw and The Portrait of a Lady.

This narration is from the original text which was published in 1879. In 1909 Henry James published a second version of Daisy Miller, which in spite of his preferring it, never had the critical or commercial acclaim of the earlier version.

    Story
    "I Am Lost For Words"

    I got this book via audiobook boom. I listened to the entire book and the best I can say is that the narrator was very good. The story centered around an American family touring Europe. The daughter Daisy Miller is the central character and the way people who have too much money and too little to do other than gossip treat her. I think. It may also be about her not knowing how to treat a man who is interested in her. Or it may be about the man not knowing how to treat the woman he is interested in. In the end, he discovers how he should have treated her but it is too late because she is dead.

    "Good quick read"
    Any additional comments?

    Daisy Miller by Henry James was a good read. Daisy Miller was a beautiful young American woman traveling in Europe with her famil. Winterbourne becomes infatuated with Daisy even though she becomes infatuated with a young Italian. This was a great quick read.

    "Interesting look back"
    Any additional comments?

    This was an odd but interesting read. Not my normal taste but I appreciated the research done and how it related to other Henry James novels. Winterbourne becomes infatuated with Daisy but Daisy Miller is attracted to a young Italian. Unfortunately his actions were too little too late.I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
