Detalls de l'obra

La maledicció de Hill House de Shirley Jackson (1959)

  1. 210
    The Turn of the Screw de Henry James (Nickelini)
    Nickelini: Both have an unreliable narrator, which results in an ambiguous story.
  2. 120
    The Little Stranger de Sarah Waters (alalba)
  3. 70
    White is for Witching de Helen Oyeyemi (upstairsgirl, sturlington)
    upstairsgirl: Similar in premise, less subtle but more disturbing in execution.
    sturlington: Hill House clearly inspired White Is for Witching.
  4. 81
    The Woman in Black de Susan Hill (Copperskye, Jannes)
    Jannes: Not sure if it is a coincidence, but the two perhaps best ghost stories ever written are both by women, in a genre otherwise mostly dominated by men. Both are superb explorations of death, loss, fear, and all those other elementsthat make up the good supernatural tales.… (més)
  5. 40
    The Red Tree de Caitlín R. Kiernan (blacksylph)
  6. 41
    Roald Dahl's Book of Ghost Stories de Roald Dahl (SomeGuyInVirginia)
    SomeGuyInVirginia: Dahl's is the best collection of ghost stories available, and Jackson's is the best haunted house story of all time. I think they make a nice pair (as the bishop said to the chorus girl.)
  7. 31
    Hell House de Richard Matheson (sturlington)
    sturlington: Inspired by The Haunting of Hill House.
  8. 20
    The House Next Door de Anne Rivers Siddons (andomck)
  9. 20
    The Unseen de Alexandra Sokoloff (amyblue)
  10. 10
    Horrorstör de Grady Hendrix (andomck)
  11. 43
    La casa de hojas de Mark Z. Danielewski (blacksylph)
    blacksylph: The only haunted house story I've ever read that was scarier than this book.
  12. 10
    Heart-Shaped Box de Joe Hill (sturlington)
    sturlington: Both are very scary ghost stories.
  13. 10
    Wild Fell (A Ghost Story) de Michael Rowe (ShelfMonkey)
  14. 11
    The Hellbound Heart de Clive Barker (andomck)
    andomck: Both are haunted house stories at their core
  15. 22
    Wish Her Safe at Home de Stephen Benatar (agmlll)
  16. 45
    Danse Macabre de Stephen King (kraaivrouw)
    kraaivrouw: Look here for Stephen King's take on The Haunting of Hill House.
  17. 01
    The Supernaturals de David L. Golemon (Scottneumann)
  18. 78
    Carrie de Stephen King (artturnerjr, akblanchard)
    artturnerjr: Clearly influenced by The Haunting of Hill House, as is much of King's work.
    akblanchard: Carrie White has much in common with Jackson's shy, bullied heroine Eleanor Vance.
  19. 68
    Salem's Lot de Stephen King (clif_hiker)
1950s (34)

A classic, but there are degrees of classic. This book wasn't really scary: four people gather into an old house which may or may not be haunted. Most of the book describes the instigation of the gathering, the journey of Eleanor, the area, the house, and briefly the other three people. One horrific scene, but mostly just hints of fear. A strange, rather dull book. ( )

Read at your own peril
The story could’ve done with less banter in the beginning and the first really scary event could’ve come sooner than the 50% mark, but it and the following horror scenes sent shivers up and down my spine. All in all, a quite enjoyable psychological horror read. ( )

The haunting parts were very intense. ( )

No live organism can continue for long to exist sanely under conditions of absolute reality; even larks and katydids are supposed, by some, to dream. Hill House, not sane, stood by itself against the hills, holding darkness within; it had stood so for eighty years and might stand for eighty more. Within, walls continued upright, bricks met neatly, floors were firm, and doors were sensibly shut; silence lay steadily against the wood and stone of Hill House, and whatever walked there, walked alone.

Shirley Jackson hurls her typewriter at Henry James, and very nearly scores a knockout. Against James' pansy of a governess in [b:The Turn of the Screw|12948|The Turn of the Screw|Henry James|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1443203592s/12948.jpg|990886], Jackson brings a dreamy, stunted, wrathful Eleanor Vance. Wrapped in language as clear and perfect as any I have ever read, Eleanor traces circles in circles, a woman in the wallpaper, to find her final exit into the scaffolding of the tale itself, snuffing out her reader as she snuffs out herself in the final turn of her narrative. (I will say I found that ending unexpectedly upsetting, even though I knew it had to be coming. Be careful reading this if you've got a depression lurking about.) The only thing that could have made this story more perfect would have been the removal of the outside parties who intrude in the seventh chapter. (I could be persuaded on that point, but I really would have preferred to keep the whole matter within Eleanor's cozy little adopted family of four: Dr. Montague is a portrait of quiet desperation. Theodora is a glory. Luke is a very forgivable mooch. Mrs. Montague and Arthur are just plot devices.)

My thoughts are still a bit jumbled here, and I don't know how long it will take to sort them. It's quite possible this will rise to a five star read in my estimation after I've thought it over a bit more. For now, if you are only going read one of Jackson's stories, make it [b:We Have Always Lived in the Castle|89724|We Have Always Lived in the Castle|Shirley Jackson|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1415357189s/89724.jpg|847007]. But if you're going to read two, make sure this one is on your list.

P.S. The introduction in this edition by Laura Miller was worth the read, but only after the book, as she spoils everything. (Does no one do afterwords anymore?) ( )

Just an absolute class act, this book. ( )

Journeys end in lovers meeting.
She could not remember ever being truly happy in her adult life; her years with her mother had been built up devotedly around small guilts and small reproaches, constant weariness, and unending despair. Without ever wanting to become reserved and shy, she had spent so long alone, with no one to love, that it was difficult for her to talk, even casually, to another person without self-consciousness and an awkward inability to find words. (chapter 1)
The house was vile. She shivered and thought, the words coming freely into her mind, Hill House is vile, it is diseased; get away from here at once. (chapter 1)
When they were silent for a moment the quiet weight of the house pressed down from all around them.
We have grown to trust blindly in our senses of balance and reason and I can see where the mind might fight wildly to preserve its own familiar stable patterns against all evidence that it was leaning sideways. (Dr. Montague, chapter 4)
