Rated 4 out of 5 by from washington square In my opinion, this is Henry James' best work. Catherine Sloper is one of the most fascinating and dimensional characters in Jamesian fiction. I truly enjoyed it ! If you are looking for the opposite of Isabel Archer, let Catherine capture your mind for a few hours. NOTE: Avoid the movie with Jennifer Jason Leigh and Albert Finney: great cast, yet strays too far from this fabulous book. As usually, Washington Square is better in print
