One of the best haunted house novels ever. Shirley Jackson's rich, seductive prose creates vivid characters who live and breathe, and before you know it, you are immersed in their world. The horror is subtle and insidious: it sneaks up and catches you before you know it. The ghosts are never seen: they are heard and felt and sensed, but the genius of Ms. Jackson's writing lays not in what is said but what is left unsaid.
