This my introduction to Henry James and, while the book was mildly enjoyable, I really didn't feel like I was being introduced to a great master of the English language. I just walked away feeling the slightly slimy feeling of the protagonist and without much closure. I can only assume James gets better as he gets more verbose since this slim volume was hardly anything to get excited about unless you wanted some lovely descriptions of Venice in which case it would be quite appropriate. His descriptions are probably the most likeable part of the book since his characters were certainly did not inspire affection.
