We Have Always Lived In The Castle

Title: We Have Always Lived In The Castle
Author: Shirley Jackson
Call Number: PS3519.A392 W4 2006
Location: 2nd Floor Humanities
Rating: Recommended
Book Review: This story is told through the eyes of one of the Blackwood Sisters - "Merricat". Shirley Jackson is known for her gothic psychological way of writing and this is no exception. A chilling tale about a murder, the isolated Blackwood sisters, an uncle who survived, a cousin who comes to disrupt things and a town that hates them. I don't want say too much because it's a very interesting tale into the lives of the Blackwood Sisters!
