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. This classic horror novel has been hailed as a perfect work of unnerving terror.

Very reminiscent of Lovecraft. I love how the classics always have such a big psychological aspect with the supernatural.

'The Haunting of Hill House' is a wonderfully complex book, complete with psychological twists and thrills. From the introduction of the characters, we are pulled into the mind of innocent, strange Eleanor, who has had connections with psychic phenomena in her past. We get to be in her mind as she experiences the terrifying grip of a house that seemingly has a personality of its own.

This book is a classic piece of horror and a fascinating look at the decline in Eleanor's sanity as she stays in Hill House. The house's story is one of sorrow, betrayal, and strange occurrences that is pieced together as the novel progresses, and even once it ends, you want to know more even as you draw away from the horrors of Hill House.

This book is a good read if you enjoy being thrilled and chilled by a mystery that might never be solved. The ending is shocking, yet it is perfect for the book. There is really no other way it could have concluded. Shirley Jackson is a master of storytelling, and her chilling tale will make you wonder what secrets your own house holds in its walls.
