Shirley Jackson you saucy little devil where have you been all my life I never knew she could spread prose like this This is an impressive bit of work and definitely belongs among the classics of literate horror novels Right from the first pitch you can see that Ms JacksonShirlis smitten with language and she uses it to great effect to create an emotionally charged disorientating atmosphere with healthy heapings of melodrama Very gothic in feel and actually reminded me of Wuthering Heights as far as the sense of emotional bleakness and dread that pervaded the narrative I say this a good thangalang as I am a true fanboy of Wuthering HeightsI thought Shirl s writing style was smooth and glassy and had nice flow It was also an utter mind trip and I blew my whole thought wad trying to keep up with her conflicting back and forth sense of is it real or unreal is it genuine horror or psychological terror I admit by the end of this fairly short novel I was as drained and spent as a sailor on a weekend pass to Vegas On the surface this appears to be a classic haunted house story with a professor of the supernatural renting Hill House in order to investigate the mysterious phenomena rud to have occurred within its oddly angled walls Along with Dr X file we have a Luke one of the heirs to the house Theodora and Eleanor Eleanor is our troubled main protag who has had a happlyless life of playing recluse while taking care of her ungrateful mommie dearest I don t want to give away the plot so I will just say that almost immediately upon arriving at Hill House the guests begin to experience oddness in the form of lost emotional control muddled thinking unusual feelings and unexplained sensations and occurrences sort of like alcohol but no where near as pleasant These events begin to wear on each of them however nothing overtly supernatural is shown to the reader That is what was so yummy about the story is that Shirl leaves it up to the reader to determine what is really going on One thing is very clear thoughHill House and people do not a good combination make and there is a growing sense of dread over the whole narrative from the very beginning The terror is psychological whether real or not and the horror is all about atmosphere and what if rather than in your face Makes of a chilling intelligent taleTo sum upa terrific gothic story Well written engaging and with what I thought was a Fergaluscious ending that fit perfectly with the rest of the narrative I think this is a novel that could stay with you and should become even better upon subseuent readings 40 to 45 stars My Country just say that almost immediately upon arriving at Hill House the guests begin to experience oddness in the form of lost emotional control muddled thinking unusual feelings and unexplained sensations and occurrences sort of like alcohol but no where near as pleasant These events begin to wear on each of them however nothing overtly supernatural is shown to the reader That is what was so yummy about the story is that Shirl leaves it up to the reader to determine what is really going on One thing is very clear thoughHill House and people do not a good combination make and there is a growing sense of dread over the whole narrative from the very beginning The terror is psychological whether real or not and the horror is all about atmosphere and what if rather than in your face Makes of a chilling intelligent taleTo sum upa terrific gothic story Well written engaging and with what I thought was a Fergaluscious ending that fit perfectly with the rest of the narrative I think this is a novel that could stay with you and should become even better upon subseuent readings 40 to 45 stars

The Haunting of Hill House 1959 is justly revered as an exemplar of the horror genre not only because its plot provides the template for all those haunted house tales to come but also because its superb prose and subtle psychology transcend genre transforming what might otherwise have been merely a sensational tale into a artful novel worthy of a discerning readerThe novel suffers from its own pervasive influence for as soon as it gets underway it seems whether or not you ve seen either movie version woefully familiar Dr Montague stuffy old scientific type wishing to investigate a haunted house enlists the aid of Eleanor shyretiring type Theodora flamboyant bohemian type and Luke handsome upper class type the heir to the house At first by daylight things don t seem half bad but then night comes and well you get idea Of course you do You ve heard it all beforeWhat you have not heard before however is the intelligent tone or the distinctive music of her prose Witness part of the description of Hill House early in the second chapter as seen through the eyes of Eleanor This house which seemed somehow to have formed itself flying together into its own powerful pattern under the hands of its builders fitting itself into its own construction of lines and angles reared its great head back against the sky without concession to humanity It was a house without kindness never meant to be lived in not a fit place for people or for love or for hope What a wonderful repetition of for in the last sentence Instead I probably would have written not a fit place for people love or hope

caused by one of the experimenters Is the house possessing them or is one of them possessing the house Shirley Jackson is too good a writer to decide for us We must choose to decide or not to decide for ourselvesThe book would have my highest praise except for the fact that the infuriating Mrs Montague and her pompous friend Arthur Parker brought in three uarters of the way through to ease tension and give comic relief are not only unnecessary but dissipate tension rather than relieve it Besides the laconic creepy Mrs Dudley I don t stay after six Not after it begins to get dark is plenty of comic relief all by herselfBut Mrs M and her friend P are but a minor flaw Give The Haunting of Hill House a chance It is in addition to being a classic of the genre an excellent novel
