About the Author

Henry James (1843-1916), son of Henry James Sr. and brother of the philosopher and psychologist William James and diarist Alice James, was an American-born author and literary critic of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. He spent much of his life in Europe and became a British subject shortly before his death. He is primarily known for novels, novellas and short stories based on themes of consciousness and morality.

Format: Paperback
Do not, under any circumstances, buy this edition of The Ambassadors. It's impossible to read and impossible to judge what the real book is like because the formatting - paragraphs, in particular - is completely messed up, making dialogue, in particular, virtually incomprehensible (I discovered this because I was having such a difficult time following the writing - and I adore Henry James - that I compared the Kindle edition to a "legitimate" edition). No wonder all the other reviews refer to the "complexity" of the prose, etc. This edition is an absolute rip-off and an insult to the author, one of the great masters of the English language. Amazon should be ashamed of itself, and this edition should be taken off the market immediately.

Format: Paperback
This is the kind of novel invented to discourage anyone from ever want to major in Literature. A shame. No, I didn't read the whole thing. A waste of time. There is no plot to pull the reader along. No clever metaphors or turns of phrase. What you get is bland, redundant dialog that would appall a decent editor. Useful only as a perverse form of punishment.
