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.

Some houses are born bad.A Classic. A masterpiece back in the day and it has held up extremely well. I enjoyed the slow burn and elegant prose which really accentuated the brooding atmosphere. I dug it.

3.5 It just keeps getting better.
Everytime I pickup a book by Shirley Jackson, I think, "There's no way it'll be as good as the last one." Once again I have been proven wrong. The writing in The Haunting of Hill House is beautiful and the story haunting. Instead of hitting you over the head with the spooky, it slowly creeps into th...
