Publisher Description

The greatest haunted house story ever written, the inspiration for a 10-part Netflix series directed by Mike Flanagan and starring Michiel Huisman, Carla Gugino, and Timothy Hutton
 
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.

The Haunting of Hill House

Recommended by Stephen King in Danse Macabre, it was well worth the read. Frightening in the mental images it calls to mind. The story is moved along fluidly with just the right amount of alternating dialogue and narration. A spooky book that's well-written.

No Sample!

I’m not gonna buy this book out of principle. The Sample button should be about only that.. sampling the book. Penguin provides us no real content of the book. Not even a single page. just the Introduction. They are treating us would-be readers with contempt so why should we reward them?

Can’t read a sample?? It’s just introduction?

Not going to buy it because I can’t read a sample. You don’t get a sample of a book to read ten pages of introduction from completely different authors 🙄 can you imagine if you went to a grocery store and were offered a free sample, and instead of food they handed you a description of the food by other people who have eaten it? So dumb. Not spending $12.99 on a book I can’t even look at before I pay.
