Fiction. Horror. HTML:

The Haunting 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; Theodara, his lovely and lighthearted assistant; Eleanor, the 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.

    Skruen strammes af Henry James (Nickelini)
    Nickelini: Both have an unreliable narrator, which results in an ambiguous story.

    White Is for Witching af Helen Oyeyemi (upstairsgirl, sturlington)
    upstairsgirl: Similar in premise, less subtle but more disturbing in execution.
    sturlington: Hill House clearly inspired White Is for Witching.

    Kvinden i sort af Susan Hill (Copperskye, Jannes)
    Jannes: Not sure if it is a coincidence, but the two perhaps best ghost stories ever written are both by women, in a genre otherwise mostly dominated by men. Both are superb explorations of death, loss, fear, and all those other elementsthat make up the good supernatural tales.… (mere)

    Roald Dahl's Book of Ghost Stories af Roald Dahl (SomeGuyInVirginia)
    SomeGuyInVirginia: Dahl's is the best collection of ghost stories available, and Jackson's is the best haunted house story of all time. I think they make a nice pair (as the bishop said to the chorus girl.)

The Haunting of Hill House could perhaps be considered the inauguration for the golden age of horror writing, taking off from where the Turn of the Screw and Dracula left us stirring uncomfortably half a century prior to pave the blood-chilling road to the Shining in only years to come. With the exception of Frankenstein and a few notable examples, it is difficult to find works of horror which are successful in actually terrorizing the inflexibly emotionless modern soul (whose senses have been notoriously anesthetized) without resorting to cheap slashers and chainsaw massacres. Jackson, however, thrives in the psychological sphere in bringing us the greatest horror of all: our innermost selves unhinged for us to see. ( )

"No live organism can continue for long to exist sanely under conditions of absolute reality. No live organism can continue for long to exist sanely under conditions of absolute reality; even larks and katydids are supposed, by some, to dream. Hill House, not sane, stood by itself against its hills, holding darkness within; it had stood so for eighty years and might stand for eighty more."

A creepy psychological thriller. I listened to it on audiobook. Next time I will read it. It is fast moving and at time I had to rewind so as not to miss important story beats! ( )

A classic ( )
  ChrisByrd | Apr 4, 2024 |
Creepy, yes. At times even scary. Still, I think this book made me sad more than anything. Poor Nell may haunt me longer than any of the apparitions will, which I think says a lot about the effectiveness of this novel. ( )

The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson

The story moves at a fast pace rich in dialog and attention to detail. Interesting eccentric characters, which I found all likable.

A bit of Gothic-psychological-suspense and paranormal undertones, I was hooked from the first page. Overall I really enjoyed The Haunting of Hill house. I highly recommend to all. ( )

Journeys end in lovers meeting.
She could not remember ever being truly happy in her adult life; her years with her mother had been built up devotedly around small guilts and small reproaches, constant weariness, and unending despair. Without ever wanting to become reserved and shy, she had spent so long alone, with no one to love, that it was difficult for her to talk, even casually, to another person without self-consciousness and an awkward inability to find words. (chapter 1)
The house was vile. She shivered and thought, the words coming freely into her mind, Hill House is vile, it is diseased; get away from here at once. (chapter 1)
When they were silent for a moment the quiet weight of the house pressed down from all around them.
We have grown to trust blindly in our senses of balance and reason and I can see where the mind might fight wildly to preserve its own familiar stable patterns against all evidence that it was leaning sideways. (Dr. Montague, chapter 4)
