Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

Have you ever read "The Turn of the Screw?"

- tidbit

A: Dear Tidbit,

I've never read it per se, but I did listen to it on a long, boring car trip once.

But I'm guessing you want me to say more. I personally didn't like it very much since I don't like stories that leave the main question of the plot (in this case "is everyone being deceptive or is the governess just crazy?") ambiguous throughout the story. I'm more for ghost stories that give you a pretty good idea of what's going on like "The Monkey's Paw," or at the very least let you think you know what's going on until the end like "The Sixth Sense."

Yes. Just now. "The--Turn--of--the--Screw." There. Done.
