The classic supernatural thriller by an author who helped define the genre. Past the rusted gates and untrimmed hedges, Hill House broods and waits… Four seekers have come to the ugly, abandoned old mansion: Dr. Montague, an occult scholar looking for solid evidence of the psychic phenomenon called haunting; Theodora, his lovely and lighthearted assistant; Eleanor, a lonely, homeless girl well acquainted with poltergeists; and Luke, the adventurous future heir of Hill House. At first, their stay seems destined to be merely a spooky encounter with inexplicable noises and self-closing doors, but Hill House is gathering its powers and will soon choose one of them to make its own.

From the look of things, both Audible an...

5.0 THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE by Shirley Jackson, narrated by Bernadette Dunn
There's nothing more I can say about this book that hasn't been said by hundreds, if not thousands, of other readers and critics. It's a classic for a reason. A haunted house story to beat all haunted house stories, with the added bonus of Shirley Jackson's sublime prose. As an example I submit t...

3.5 Reading progress update: Finished
I got the audio version from my library. So far it has me hooked. I didn't want to get out of my car this morning to go into work... I rarely want to do that anyway, but more so now that I was listening to this. :) This would fit multiple bingo squares, but I think I will be using it for my Genre:...

3.5 Supernatural or psychotic break?
it might not then be too fanciful to say that some houses are born bad. Apparently, I do think it is too fanciful because I felt this book was way more of this, “I think we are only afraid of ourselves,” the doctor said slowly. “No,” Luke said. “Of seeing ourselves clearly and without disguise....
