The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson

Robyn’s pick: I have been a longtime fan of Shirley Jackson, yet somehow only recently read The Haunting of Hill House, probably her most famous story. Unlike the recent TV shows and other adaptations, the book follows Eleanor and 3 other guests of Dr. Montague, an occult scholar, as they search for evidence of the paranormal at Hill House. I love Jackson’s mastery of atmosphere. You can feel the floorboards creaking beneath your feet and the oppressive doom when standing in the shadow of Hill House. Fun, creepy and poignant, READ THIS BOOK.

About the book: 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 powers—and soon it will choose one of them to make its own.
