We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson

We Have Always Lived in the Castle - Shirley Jackson, Thomas Ott, Jonathan Lethem

 

I listened to the audio version of this tale.

 

As usual, Shirley Jackson's prose is out of this world. But not only is her prose fabulous, the way she tells this story puts her miles above most horror authors working today.
This tale is about the Blackwoods; a family living an isolated life outside a typical small town. The Blackwood family has been decimated by a tragedy which leaves only two sisters, Constance and Mary Catherine, living alone with their disabled uncle Julian.
That is all I will say about the plot. I prefer to let Ms. Jackson tell this tale of neuroses and tangled family obligations.


The narrator of this version was the same as the audio version of The Haunting of Hill House. Her name is Bernadette Dunn and she did an excellent job.


Highly Recommended!
