We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson
We Have Always Lived in the Castle

LitBeetle, September 7, 2013

I came back to work 20 minutes late from lunch because the book was too good to put down. That was a dozen pages in. Shirley Jackson’s We Have Always Lived in the Castle is a whirling, magical read that takes its readers into the mind of a half-mad girl named Merricat. Through her strangely beautiful, sometimes frightening mind, we learn the story of the Blackwood family and Jackson’s incredible skill and a suspense author. Make sure you wear a decent shawl while reading this, because - "between Merricat’s quietly frightening mind and Jackson’s simple but eloquent writing - "We Have Always Lived in the Castle will give you chills.
