The classic supernatural thriller by an author who helped define the genre First published in 1959, Shirley Jackson's The Haunting of Hill House has been hailed as a perfect work of unnerving terror. It is the story of four seekers who arrive at a notoriously unfriendly pile called Hill House: Dr. Montague, an occult scholar looking for solid evidence of a "haunting"; Theodora, his lighthearted assistant; Eleanor, a friendless, fragile young woman well acquainted with poltergeists; and Luke, the future heir of Hill House. At first, their stay seems destined to be merely a spooky encounter with inexplicable phenomena. But Hill House is gathering its powers-and soon it will choose one of them to make its own.

5.0 Review: The Haunting of Hill House
This was creepy and scary without gore or jump scares. It was almost more psychological because there was never a solid presence or any one thing to fear like in a slasher film/book.

3.0 The Haunting of Hill House (audiobook) by Shirley Jackson, performed by David Warner
I'll be brief, since I only just read and reviewed a paper copy of this back in June. David Warner's narration was good, although I occasionally wished that a female narrator had been chosen instead, since he didn't always fit Eleanor and Theodora very well. 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:...
