We Have Always Lived in the Castle – Shirley Jackson
Why did I pick it up?
I was originally drawn to this by just the cover. The artwork gives a really great idea about the tone of the book. I definitely wanted something a bit spooky and dark.
What did I think?
Shirley Jackson just got a new, loving fan. Her novel is completely unique! She does such a fantastic job of creating a sense of the weird and unnatural without actually having anything supernatural in the book. The two sisters are so easy to connect with and understand, despite the ridiculous nature of most of their thoughts and perceptions. I can’t wait to read more of her work.
