There is a darkness in Slope House, one that extends much beyond its cruel-faced act and its dark détroit, where doors are never left ajar and windows never stay open. The particular evil that resides within the mad mansion - for isn't a rational one - dates again to its construction and the family who existed there soon after it was done. Years later, every time a group of three young people are asked to stay at Slope House by a teacher, horrible things happen.
We really enjoyed The Haunting of Hill House, mostly because of the dark atmospheric feel to it, but additionally credited to the sheer wit contained in its pages. Shirley Jackson managed to mash-up moments of horror with instances of joy, then wrapped them around with a cloak of madness and threw them at me as if I had created ever been good at catching things. Sometimes normal conversations would be occurring and then someone would go off on a insane-sounding tangent, and other people would act as if it weren't occurring. Other times, normally nice characters would suddenly turn into evil bickerers and converse with such cruelty I had to read such passages twice to be sure I wasn't proceeding crazy.
I don't think everyone would enjoy the Haunting of Hill Home, not because some usually are intelligent enough to know it, because it would be way too illogical for them. Yet , I rather liked it, and We look forward to reading more of Ms. Jackson's novels., There's ghostly tendency... or will there be? Hill Home is the setting for four individuals to trade witty banter, with a irritable housekeeper to serve them. The arrival of another character late in the book, dreadful though the girl with, adds a little of life.
I imagine it's spooky in the own way, but We failed to be entranced to the 5/5 level., I think this is one of the best haunted house textbooks. Shirley Jackson weaves a good, slim tale with no extraneous matter creeping in to mar the atmosphere.
In reality, and it's why it only gets four superstars rather than five, it is a little too slim on detail. The house is haunted surely in a mentally predatory way, but why? There appears to be no rhyme or reason behind the haunting. We don't mind a little ambiguity but in this case her reticence is stretched a little too much. There is virtually no backstory to the house, absolutely nothing is ever said about what prior tenants experienced or anything. Even one of the scary parts in the book we don't get to see what drives them back into the house.
As a personality study in a psychologically and emotionally undeveloped lady though it is incredible. The story stays securely in Eleanor's head and despite a few detours at first stays firmly there. So everything we see is filtered through her skewed perception and stunted emotions. Will be the people really as she sees them to be and/or our perceptions of them being colored by hers?
A phrase of caution to the kindle version, however. In case you are reading the story for the first time then I indicate skipping the introduction as it gives away several key plot moments and the closing to boot. It is an interesting introduction but if you are new to the book then I suggest leaving it until the end.
Happy haunting!, This is a good ghost story with great descriptions of the surrounding landscapes and people making the reader feel like they are in the displays with the characters. This is a quick read and keeps the readers entertained throughout the tale. The ending is a little abrupt, and the main one area of the book We would have liked the author to add a little more detail too. General it is a good ghost tale the other fun to read in the Halloween season.
