The Haunting of Hill House

Title: The Haunting of Hill House
Author: Shirley Jackson
Publisher: Penguin Classics
ISBN: 978-0-14-303998-3
Why Read?: Book Club
Challenges:  Horror & Urban Fantasy, A to Z, Ghostly, 100 Books in a Year

Thoughts: The Haunting is one of my favorite classic horror movies (the original -not the remake).  However, it does take some liberties with Jackson's original story (the play version, though, is as true to the book as a play can be).  The real story is more psychological than in-your-face, but the creep factor is still ramped way up there.
Rating: 5 stars
