STAR RATINGS GUIDE
Spooky in the best possible way.
💗 It took me time to get round to reading this, mostly as I was worried it wouldn’t match the hype. Also, I thought it might have an outdated stance on what’s scary. I could not have been more wrong.
🧡 This was spooky in the best way. It is subtle and unnerving and based in very human insecurity. The narrative tilted me in one direction then another, leaving me unsteady and unsure of characters’ intentions.
💚 The Winter People by Jenniffer McMahon and Henry James' classic The Turn of the Screw are both brilliant books to move onto from this.
SQUAWKING THE TALK
🎧 Bernadette Dunne did a good job of portraying different characters. I loved her Mrs Montague in particular.

The Haunting of Hill House
Past the rusted gates and untrimmed hedges, Hill House broods and waits….
Four seekers have come to the ugly, abandoned old mansion: Dr. Montague, an occult scholar looking for solid evidence of the psychic phenomenon called haunting; Theodora, his lovely and lighthearted assistant; Eleanor, a lonely, homeless girl well acquainted with poltergeists; and Luke, the adventurous future heir of Hill House. At first, their stay seems destined to be merely a spooky encounter with inexplicable noises and self-closing doors, but Hill House is gathering its powers and will soon choose one of them to make its own.
