The Ambassadors - Henry James, Harry Levin Similar premise as The Talented Mr. Ripley, but oh so Henry Jamesian. This is my favorite of his books. I've heard many people say that Henry James is difficult reading and I even had some people in my college classes who used abridged copies for class, but I've never understood this. I find his writing compelling. For me, his novels are page-turners. Maybe I'm just weird.
