Get The Turn of the Screw [amazon.com]by Henry James free on Kindle at Amazon, and for $1.99 you can add the Audible version read by Emma Thompson [audible.com].

You can either click the box to "add Audible narration for $1.99" when you purchase the ebook, or you can go to Audible after and look for the audio version of this book (make sure you look at the version read by Emma Thompson, it's the newest version).

I found a description that doesn't give anything away here [shmoop.com]:

The Turn of the Screw is easily one of the most influential ghost stories of all time. Not only does it appeal to those of us who like a good thrill, it is also a model for any aspiring writer of suspense. Henry James's text is famous for its lasting mysterious qualities; though the story originally appeared over a hundred years ago in 1898, it still stumps readers everywhere to this day. Its many confusing twists and turns have sparked debates between critics since its publication, and the story has been examined from all kinds of different angles - from psychoanalysis to literary criticism. Part of what's so fascinating about it is the fact that James himself never clearly came out and told readers what he intended them to believe, and it's this ambiguity that makes it one of this prolific author's most famous, talked about short stories.

Can anyone comment on the quality of these celebrity readings in general, or this one in particular? I'm leery of this trend as it might put regular readers out of business and I'm not confident that celebrities will do a good job.

Professional actors typically do a good job reading books -- it's a performance, and they know how to do that well.
