Book review: The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson

I recently finished this book and I am going to summarize some of my thoughts in a concise list below:

  • The book has great writing
  • The buildup in the book is pretty amazing but there is no climatic part
  • Characters are pretty well developed even if a bit hard to relate to
  • About 3/4th the way in, Mrs. Montague is added but no real plot or character development is done by this
  • It’s clear this book can be an influence for many movies and books that came after it

Overall, this book is a 3 out of 5 stars, in my opinion.
