    1. Totally satisfactory: Short delivery time and good condition of the book. That's why I ordered, and will order, more books of the same collection and publishiung company.Moll Flanders?


    2. This is truly a masterpiece of literature and was a pleasure to read and listen to as performed by Alicia Johnson. James was quite the loquacious writer and his command of the English language exceptional. As the story unfolded I was mesmerized by the descriptive way in which he brought out every nuance of his characters or minute details of the surroundings, be it the estate in England or Rome, Italy (the eternal city). The protagonist of the work is a young American, Isabel Archer, who being [...]


    3. The Portrait of a Lady is a brilliant book about human manipulation, love, and marriage that shows just how important real-life experience is to making the right choices in life. While the focus of the novel is on the pitfalls of a young woman, making the dilemmas she faces somewhat particular to her gender, nonetheless there is plenty to be learned by all readers of this book, regardless of gender. I, for instance, first read this book right after I got married and firmly resolved that, as a re [...]


    4. Despite 's claim, this Kindle edition does not include page numbers. The other thing to keep in mind is that this version uses the 1881 text of the novel. Most modern editions use the text that James revised for the New York Edition (1908). The difference can be significant: This text is, relatively speaking, early James. The New York Edition has the flavor of late James, with his characteristic longer, denser sentences. Penguin provides a welcome service in offering Kindle versions of both [...]


    5. I am a writer, and a life-long passionate reader of novels, and I think I can say, without any hesitation, that I consider this THE greatest novel in the English language ever written. So if you love novels, and you somehow haven't read this, don't wait another minute.There is no other experience like reading this book for the first time.Just read it.


    6. I decided to read Portrait of a Lady, by Henry James, after listening to a discussion of this novel on NPR. It was described as a masterpiece of literature. So I went to my Kindle and downloaded the "masterpiece" for 99 cents. I reluctantly prepared myself to work my way through one of James' dense and hard to read novels. I was in for a surprise. Except for James' preface, which indeed is a challenge, Portrait of a Lady was a great read. Written in the early 1880s, a time in when it was virtual [...]
