The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson

Book Description:

Published: 1959

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.

Review –

I have seen the movie The Haunting of Hill House many times as it is one of my favorites and when the audio version was offered free I just couldn’t resist.

I was hoping that the book was very similar and I was surprised to find that the movie was indeed very close to the book. The screenplay writer did an excellent job.

Loved it.

Check it out for Halloween.
