Detaljer om værket

The Haunting of Hill House af Shirley Jackson (1959)

  1. 210
    Skruen strammes af Henry James (Nickelini)
    Nickelini: Both have an unreliable narrator, which results in an ambiguous story.
  2. 120
    Lille fremmede af Sarah Waters (alalba)
  3. 70
    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.
  4. 81
    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)
  5. 40
    The Red Tree af Caitlín R. Kiernan (blacksylph)
  6. 41
    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.)
  7. 20
    The Unseen af Alexandra Sokoloff (amyblue)
  8. 20
    The House Next Door af Anne Rivers Siddons (andomck)
  9. 10
    Horrorstör af Grady Hendrix (andomck)
  10. 21
    Hell House af Richard Matheson (sturlington)
    sturlington: Inspired by The Haunting of Hill House.
  11. 43
    House of Leaves af Mark Z. Danielewski (blacksylph)
    blacksylph: The only haunted house story I've ever read that was scarier than this book.
  12. 10
    Dødens jagt af Joe Hill (sturlington)
    sturlington: Both are very scary ghost stories.
  13. 10
    Wild Fell (A Ghost Story) af Michael Rowe (ShelfMonkey)
  14. 11
    The Hellbound Heart af Clive Barker (andomck)
    andomck: Both are haunted house stories at their core
  15. 22
    Wish Her Safe at Home af Stephen Benatar (agmlll)
  16. 45
    Danse Macabre af Stephen King (kraaivrouw)
    kraaivrouw: Look here for Stephen King's take on The Haunting of Hill House.
  17. 01
    The Supernaturals af David L. Golemon (Scottneumann)
  18. 78
    Carrie af Stephen King (artturnerjr, akblanchard)
    artturnerjr: Clearly influenced by The Haunting of Hill House, as is much of King's work.
    akblanchard: Carrie White has much in common with Jackson's shy, bullied heroine Eleanor Vance.
  19. 68
    De dødes by af Stephen King (clif_hiker)
1950s (34)

As a self-professed lover of the Gothic, I am rather embarrassed to admit that this is the first Shirley Jackson book I've ever read. Nor have I watched the movies based on her works. As a lame defence, I can state that I'm a greater fan of 19th Century ghost and horror fiction than of its more recent manifestations. But this book, though written in 1959, is an undisputed modern classic.

The novel starts traditionally enough. Dr John Montague, a paranormal investigator, together with three willing collaborators, goes to spend a summer in the allegedly haunted Hill House, a bizarre mansion built eighty years before by an eccentric businessman. It isn't long before the house starts living up to its reputation - doors close of their own accord, strange noises are heard during the night, ominous writings appear on the walls.

However, we soon realise that, despite the third-person narration, we are experiencing the house through the eyes and mind of one of the participants of the experiment - Eleanor, a shy, lonely and possibly disturbed young woman. In other words, Nell is the ideal candidate for the role of the proverbial unreliable narrator. Relationships start to crack faster than you can say "Big Brother". The tension mounts but it's more of the psychological than of the supernatural type. Indeed, Jackson leaves us in doubt as to whether the phenomena we've witnessed are otherworldly at all.

Did I find the novel terrifying? Not really, but that's likely because I read most of the book on a plane flight, in between safety announcements, air-hostesses peddling perfumes, drinks and scratch cards (!) and fellow passengers jostling to go to the toilet. I did feel a growing sense of unease as the novel progressed and ultimately I found the book delightfully disturbing.

Now on to Jackson's short stories! ( )

The title says it all! Written in the 50s, this book might be a bit out of date and a little hokey at times, but that didn’t keep be from loving it! Creepy and atmospheric, this one is a study in how you do it right! There’s no doubt that Jackson has the supreme talent to make us care about her characters – and then to torture them! (I haven’t checked out the series, but I like the movie.) ( )

I really wanted to LOVE this book but it was just okay for me. It was a creepy read but nothing spectacular. Unfortunately, I think the movie and the tv show really brought a lot to the table and made this book better even though I almost always have liked the books better then the movie/tv show adaptations. In this case, I think Shirley Jackson left too much up to the readers imagination and interpretation and really could’ve added some more details in.

For Leonard Brown
Første ord
Oplysninger fra den engelske Almen Viden Redigér teksten, så den bliver dansk.
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.

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)
