The Haunting of Hill House
The Haunting of Hill House | Shirley Jackson
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 powersand soon it will choose one of them to make its own.For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world.

Shirley Jackson is a literary master. I love the character building of Eleanor and her relationship with all of the other characters. In the end I have lots of questions but that is one of the reasons I love this book so much.

I‘ve had mixed feelings about Shirley Jackson in the past, but this was perfect! I also watched the TV adaptation this month which was only loosely based on this, but interestingly included a number of original lines from the book itself even though the plot was completely reworked. I also found the adaptation much scarier!!!

Thanks for the tag @Texreader

1) I can't remember a single one and I'm not quite sure what that might say about me. Maybe - and that's a very big maybe - the tagged book/film (film the 1963 version, not the Liam Neeson and Catherine Zeta-Jones one)

2) Pratchett's Wyrd Sisters

3) browns and oranges - but mainly because my go to snuggly/cozy/warm clothes have those colours

4.5⭐ If you are looking for a quick, spooky listen, I highly recommend The Haunting of Hill House narrated by David Warner. I thoroughly enjoyed this rendition of the tale.

“The #scarf Theodora had been wearing lay across the back of her chair; I can take care of that too, Eleanor thought, her maid's pathetic finery, and put one end of it between her teeth and pulled, tearing, and then dropped it when she heard them behind her on the stairs.“

You know, just that moment when you find your friend's scarf and find it necessary to tear it apart with your teeth!

Just reread The Haunting of Hill House and I have so many thoughts! Here are a few:

1. How did I not see all the sapphic undertones to this book?? They're so obvious!
2. I am convinced now that the house is definitely haunted, regardless of the emotional state of the MC.
3. “Journeys end in lovers meeting“ has so many possibilities now!

Also, had to share the shirt I wore for class!

52/22 Well, I didn‘t think I would be writing this but I wasn‘t a massive fan. And now I‘m wondering whether I should of read instead of listened. Maybe, it was the narrators pacing that stopped me from feeling the full off kilter effect I think I was supposed to. I liked the idea of the strange architecture and my favorite bits were probably when they explored the house. I think I should watch the show now #scarathalon #teammonstermash W/S 260pts

I‘m a weenie and I don‘t do ANY scary things but this was $1 at Hot Bins and it‘s one of those “classics” so I gave it a shot. It wasn‘t like “boo” type of scary but “The Yellow Wallpaper” type of spooky if you get my drift.

Meh. Probably an unpopular opinion but The Haunting movie and the tv shows on Netflix were better. Lackluster. I wasn‘t scared or even intrigued. And the ending sucked. No big build…just fell flat.

MommyOfTwo @ElizaMarie I called the post office today and she told me the container it‘s in has a bunch of tracking numbers that haven‘t been delivered and she is guessing that they are short staffed where it is. She said to give it to the end of this week and if it‘s not here we could start a recovery search for it. Also if you could tell me the book so I can see if my library has it and I can get it read sooner. (edited) 6mo

MommyOfTwo @ElizaMarie no I haven‘t. It looks like it hasn‘t moved yet so I am going to give the post office a call again tomorrow or Friday to see if they can start a recovery on it. 5mo

MommyOfTwo @ElizaMarie so I called the post office today, last week got away from me. They said an insurance claim could be started on it but it would be easier for you as the sender to do it. You have to go on to the website so do it I guess. 5mo
MommyOfTwo @Mommamanzi I don‘t know if you have been seeing these messages or not, I‘m guessing you haven‘t. The last package that was sent to me is stuck somewhere along the way and has been since the beginning of June. I am ordering a new copy of the book to get sent on to the next person. 5mo

I thought I might end up liking Hill House just as much as We Have Always Lived in the Castle — which is one of my favorite novels ever! Eleanor & her rambling daydreams & cup full of stars charmed me immediately. The last fourth of the book, though, wasn‘t quite what I wanted. The end felt a bit rushed & muddy. Still, Shirley Jackson‘s writing ALWAYS astounds me. She‘s wonderful & still feels modern, 60+ years later. My dark (& funny!) Queen. 🖤

There were some good things and some bad things about the book. I liked that the story is open to interpretation, there are things that work together in such a way that it is hard to completely comprehend. I liked that you aren't quite sure what was only happening in her mind, and what was actually real. It kind of messes with your mind a bit.
Conversations didn't always make sense, and the pacing just felt off to me. Overall, I would read again.

Maybe not too spooky but it has elements of supernatural creatures/elements. This book is also sad because there are traces of insanity and that end? So sad😢I liked the story of these persons spending some days in this apparently haunted house. I saw some psychological aspects and maybe that is why I liked it. The tv series more than an adaptation is a version of the book, so different from the book but I‘m enjoying it. 3.8⭐️

I chose this classic for my first spooky #audiobook for October. I was underwhelmed. The narrator is good and the book is only 6 hours long, so it‘s still worth reading since it‘s considered a classic. I was expecting something really creepy and disturbing and this wasn‘t it. But it‘s easy listening and not terrible. 3⭐️
