The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson
The Haunting of Hill House is a chilling story of the power of fear
Alone in the world, Eleanor is delighted to take up Dr Montague's invitation to spend a summer in the mysterious Hill House. Joining them are Theodora, an artistic 'sensitive', and Luke, heir to the house. But what begins as a light-hearted experiment is swiftly proven to be a trip into their darkest nightmares, and an investigation that one of their number may not survive.
Twice filmed as The Haunting, and the inspiration for a 10-part TV series, The Haunting of Hill House is a powerful work of slow-burning psychological horror.
