ABOUT THE BOOK (from Amazon):
Taking readers deep into a labyrinth of dark neurosis, We Have Always Lived in the Castle is a deliciously unsettling novel about a perverse, isolated, and possibly murderous family and the struggle that ensues when a cousin arrives at their estate.
I don’t know why but this cover kept calling to me for weeks until I finally picked up this book. It’s a short book, just 150 pages or so, and the story is captivating. The reading “flow” was a little bit of a challenge for me, but that may just be Shirley Jackson’s style that I’m not used to because I’ve never read anything else by her. The story is mysterious and suspenseful. I recommend it if you like dark fiction.
