The Turn of the Screw and The Aspern Papers - Henry James, Anthony   Curtis
The Turn of the Screw:

A classic tale that does not interest me and nor does it scare me. In parts it disquiets, but the style that it was written in has decayed considerably over the years. I had skipped over the last sentence before I realized that I had actually hit the end and had to re-read it to realize what had happened. What a disappointment.
