#retoliluleo17 (7/25), libro recomendado por una Lilu. Si hablo en @dinaoltra automáticamente pienso en este libro, creo que pocas veces he visto a alguien recomendar tanto un libro y hacerlo con tanto entusiasmo. No es de extrañar. Nunca había leído una novela con una atmósfera como la de esta, a caballo entre el crimen y la fantasía, la locura y la magia y con arsénico, agorafobia, fogones, perjuicios e imaginación por doquier. Pero sobre todo con una protagonista inolvidable: Merricat Blackwood. Muy, muy recomendable.

I have just finished reading The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson.
.
The Haunting of Hill House, you would think it's a kind of "it does what it says on the tin" kind of title, but dear Lord, it's not! .
Shirley Jackson is a genious in how she constructed this story, telling the reader everything as it happens, but you wonder all the way through what the heck is actually going on! .
It's a quick read, less than 250 pages but packed with eerie intense atmospheric story .
Dr. Montague invites Eleanor (who I adored) Theodora (who I didn't) and Luke (heir to Hill House) to stay and see if they can detect any paranormal activity. .
Mrs Dudley, the house keeper chilled me to my bones! What a superb character! .
Mrs Dudley makes it perfectly clear to the group that Hill House is completely isolated. And in the night, nobody will hear you scream.
I prefered We Have Always Lived In The Castle, but this one is a solid 4/5 stars!
.
There is not much I can say without giving away the story too much. But my point is you should read this book! .

My review of #wehavealwayslivedinthecastle by #shirleyjackson : "We Have Always Lived in the Castle pulls you in, strongly and surely, from the first page. It's magnetic. It's one of those books you have to take everywhere so that, if you have a quick moment, no matter how brief, you can pick it up and dive straight back into its gothic, unsettling story.
A sense of foreboding hangs upon every paragraph and chapter and it's pages full you with unease.
It's narrated by "Merricat", an eighteen year old, little Sister to shy, reclusive Constance.
With each turn of the page the narrative becomes darker and even more weird. It's horror but not the usual kind. It's haunting and beautifully descriptive.
The characterisation is just wonderful. I love the eccentricity of old, poorly Uncle Julian and the prim, proper Constance. I'm not a fan of horrible Cousin Charles and neither is Merricat, who I find myself incredibly drawn to. Even Jonas the cat proves a big character and is integral to the story. That cat has witnessed more than his fair share whilst being a part of the Blackwood family.
This is the first time I've read Shirley Jackson and after reading We Have Always Lived in the Castle, I'm excited to read more of her work. In fact, The Haunting of Hill House is firmly next on my #toreadlist."

BLURB:
Hill House  terpencil,  ganjil dan angker. Ukiran dan lukisan di dalamnya seolah-olah mengamatimu ke mana pun kau pergi, pintu-pintu selalu tertutup sendiri, dan kau selalu merasakan dingin  menggigit meski duduk di dekat perapian. Setiap malam, terdengar suara langkah kaki di koridor, dan ketukan-ketukan kasar di pintu, padahal ketika diperiksa, tidak ada siapa-siapa. Tidak ada orang waras yang sudi tinggal di sana .… Namun, rumor-rumor seram Hill House malah menarik perhatian

Dr. Montague, akademisi yang ingin melakukan penelitian tentang aktivitas supernatural. Dengan tiga orang asisten, Eleanor, Theodora, dan Luke, dia tinggal di Hill House selama musim panas. Awalnya gangguan-gangguan makhluk halus yang mereka alami masih bisa ditoleransi, tapi ketika Eleanor mulai mendengar suara-suara tanpa wujud yang membisikkan namanya, dan coretan cat merah di dinding yang memintanya pulang, keadaan mulai di luar kendali.

Dr. Montague harus bertindak cepat jika tidak ingin korban nyawa berjatuhan.

Here's a sneak peek at a little thing I'm working on right now! I just read Shirley Jackson's We Have Always Lived in the Castle, and I'm feeling inspired to do some fanart 🌻 So say hello to one of my favorite literary (anti-?) heroines, Merricat Blackwood.

And in the upcoming movie, Taisa Farmiga (I love her to bits) is going to play Merricat! I'm so excited 😱
