I love Shirley Jackson, but I don't think this was one of her best. It was a very slow burn, and, at times was a bit dull. However, when you get to the end of the book, that's where Shirley shined. This frightening tale of a haunted house begins with a group of paranormal investigators invited to the house to research the phenomena that is occurring within. At first, the house doesn't seem to have much action. However, when an investigator brings out her planchette, the house comes alive. The house takes over and decides who can leave and who can stay. Will they get out alive? This is the horror that Shirley is best known for and does not disappoint.… (lisätietoja)

Eleanor Vance has led a sad and lonely life so far. Now in her early 30s, she spent most of her youth caring for her emotionally abusive and disabled mother. The mother has recently died, leaving Eleanor penniless, friendless, and forced to sleep on the couch of a sister and brother-in-law who clearly don’t want her around. So, when a cryptic invitation arrives to join a small team of researchers living in an allegedly haunted house for the summer, she jumps at the chance as a new beginning. After stealing the family car, she arrives at Hill House to join three others: Dr. Montague, the academic scholar who arranged the visit; Theodora, a carefree, confident young woman who is everything Eleanor is not; and Luke, the ne’er-do-well scion of the family that owns the mansion. Shortly after settling in, the foursome begins to experience strange phenomena—doors suddenly closing, banging on walls, random cold spots in entryways, blood splattered on clothing—most all of which center on Eleanor, who seems especially desperate to establish the family ties she never really had before. Hill House is gradually possessing her and it is unlikely that things will end well.

In The Haunting of Hill House, Shirley Jackson’s celebrated gothic horror story, we learn the fate of Eleanor and the rest of the unfortunate, short-term residents of that evil mansion. The novel is well plotted and extremely well written; the author creates an unsettling atmosphere throughout the book while never resorting to overt “slash-and-scare” tactics in developing the sinister nature of events that unfold. In fact, the horror elements are conveyed in quite a vague manner, leaving it to the reader to fill in many of the details. Indeed, for readers conditioned by far more explicit “haunting” treatments in fiction or film, this novel will seem less like a horror story than a compelling character study of a disturbed and emotionally fragile young woman. In that respect, all the author’s characterizations are strong, even those of the supporting cast that includes Mr. and Mrs. Dudley, the caretakers of the mansion who refuse to stay past dark, and Mrs. Montague, the doctor’s vain and silly wife who provides some comic relief. So, while I found the novel to be disappointingly light on thrills and chills, it was still a worthwhile reading experience for the insightful and compassionate portraits of the people involved.

I can't help but imagine this spine-tingling Shirley Jackson collection like a series of episodes from the original Twilight Zone, with a grainy, black-and-white presentation, an ordinary John/Jane Doe with strange psychic abilities, Rod Sterling's quirky narration, and Bernard Hermann tick-tocking in the background (just give it a try, and you'll see what I mean). Also like the Twilight Zone, Jackson likes to give us little tidbits of oddball comedy that offset the more sinister tales, which may be received in poor taste, but for me, this just magnifies the whole and integrates everything together, where Jackson is able to brandish her own unique and weird imagination.… (lisätietoja)
