Both novellas are written in an older style and take a little time getting used to.
I was interested in reading The Turn of the Screw because I saw The Innocents. Interestingly enough, I feel the book gives the impression that the governess is a nutjob while the movie gives the impression the children are the dark element.
The other novella, In the Cage, is almost a 180 from the tone set by the other novella. It is almost entirely composed of the thoughts of the main character. Having very little character interaction, it is not quite a page turner.
