I love "The Haunting of Hill House"; one of the best first paragraphs in a suspense novel there is. Probably the best, actually... All of her stuff can be gotten for free from classic-e-book sites, so I'll put this one in iBooks and read it when times are slow at the bar.
Can't go far wrong with that plan. I've seen good things said about The Haunting of Hill House as well, so that's going on my list too.
ditto on that. she is a master.
Yup. Thanks for stopping by and commenting!
Isn't it though? I read this for the first time a few years back and was hanging on every word.
Seriously, the skill with which she manipulates you into dreading turning the page and yet feeling that you can't not is astounding. Almost dictionary definition of 'suspense' right there.
I read this book recently. It blew my mind. I'd put it up with the top books I've read although I kind of scarily identified with the narrator. It's a book with very polarised reviews and it'd be interested to see where people lay on the scale of introvert/extrovert because I think it's a book that only introverts would understand.
