We Have Always Lived in the Castle By Shirley Jackson
Taking readers deep into a labyrinth of dark neurosis, We Have Always
Lived in the Castle is a deliciously unsettling novel about a
perverse, isolated, and possibly murderous family and the struggle
that ensues when a cousin arrives at their estate.
This may be one of the top 5 creepiest families I have ever read about. I wasn't really into the book and kept waiting for the big reveal but I was kind of disappointed. I can see that, for it's time, it was maybe considered sensational, but I was so creeped out by the family I didn't really get into it.
