The Siege of London


Read by Nicholas Clifford

(3.6 stars; 4 reviews)

In this work, first published in 1883, James once again writes of an American trying to settle in England. The woman at the center, however, is not a product of the Boston or New York upper classes, but of the American West, and is thus distinguished from the characters of many of his other transatlantic works. - Summary by Nicholas Clifford (3 hr 36 min)

I usually enjoy Henry James' writing, although this seemed to go on a little long. There was a lot of French in it which I don't understand. That may be what distracted me often. However it did seem to draw on a little long. Nicholas Clifford is one of my favorite readers. I hadn't listened to any of his reading in a long time and so it was delightful to hear to him again.

Well read and enjoyable to hear

Ahh, breaking into proper society in the 1800s was not an easy task but our heroine is out to try. The reader has a nice voice and cadence. If you like Henry James, you will like this
