Audio Book Summary

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.

"Makes your blood chill and your scalp prickle…Shirley Jackson is the master of the haunted tale."—New York Times Book Review

    I thought, judging by the reviews, that this book would be worthy of reading, however i couldn't be more wrong. The author gives you an anticipation that something interesting will happen, but as the chapters rolled on and on nothing of any interest came to fruition, right up to the boring end. To say i was disappointed would be an understatment. It was bland, tame and to be frank 'A load of Shite'. A chick flick of a horror novel springs to mind. If you're thinking it sounds intruiging...think again and look elsewhere.

    This was the first time I ever listened to a haunted house story and it was truly engaging. I found it to be fair for its time especially when it came to themes involving oppression. The atmosphere the author created was tense and the language though easy to follow, was still wonderful for conveying a sense of entrapment and horror. If you like a good haunted house story, this one is definitely worth a listen.

    One of the best haunted-house books I have encountered. Jackson makes room – through her characters – for healthy skepticism and even good humor regarding occult explanations for whatever happens. Vulgar credulousness – in the form of Mrs. Montague and her friend Arthur – makes for a good laugh. But that uncertainty about explanations, that refusal to rely on clichés about what haunting should look like, makes the terror – when it comes – more like real, lived experience. Leaves you unsettled when it’s all over.

    This book is mainly about atmosphere. There is not a whole lot of action going on and the ending is somewhat anti-climatic, but the mood throughout the entire book is so ominous, so rich in anxiety. I thought it was a great horror novel. I prefer a different narration though.
