Publisher Description

Shirley Jackson's beloved gothic tale of a peculiar girl named Merricat and her family's dark secret

LOVED

I could not set this book down. The characters are extremely engrossing and it's so easy to get in their heads. A wonderful "mystery" that's more of a 'why do it' than a 'who done it'. It's also a very easy read! If I was to start a book club, it would be because of this book... I could talk about it all day. 👏🏻

Shhhhh

After Shirley Jackson writes, there is nothing left to say.

Tedious - anti climactic

Wow. This was just so tedious…. I read the whole thing but just barely. Actions by the main characters were all super repetitive. Same scene over and over and over. It was predictable as well. It was clear who the real culprit was from the start.
