The Turn of the Screw

Emma Thompson is actually the ‘narrator’ for this unabridged, 4 hours and 40 minutes, audiobook of Henry James’ ghost story, released 15th March, 2016, about an English governess caring for two young children as she struggles to prevent them from being possessed by two dangerous spirits. The governess’s story is told in the first person, with Emma Thompson performing all the roles within that story. However, that is a story-within-a-story. Richard performs the 10-minute role of a narrator of who introduces that ghost story told to a collection of people (all of whom he plays) attending a weekend party which frames the story of the governess.
