The Beast in the Jungle by Henry James

The Beast in the Jungle
This is a very short story by Henry James, I think it’s the first of his I’ve read and I would like to try something longer. This one didn’t grip me at all – it’s the story of a man who’s always felt some catastrophe awaited him, but didn’t know when or what it owuld be. Then he discovers he’d told someone about it – and falls in love and then along comes the catastrophe.

Intriguing and an interesting take on life – but not a book I’m going to hold on to.
