soundtrack: kate bush / the infant kiss
- for a ghost story, it's too introspective.
- if it's not a ghost story (though i was thrilled by the gothic atmosphere)and the governess is / becomes mad, why bother?
- i suspect H.J. wanted to play with the reader's mind. well he succeeded. for two or three times i just wanted to drop the book and start some serious reading :D
- miles and flora are too attached to each other, too cute, fair and perfect in the gov.'s eyes, so yes, this calls for some mental issues.
whatever, the real problem here is: what on earth did miles tell at school?
