Appendix: Biography of a Story
I think The Haunting is prob the best story I've ever read, the one I liked the best, enjoyed, most moving. The story struck me in so many ways, I had to add this post comment...I loved this story.
If you are reading this review, and haven't read The Haunting, please, please do. You will not be disappointed.
I borrowed this form the library and will be buying my own copy.
I read The Haunting of Hill House and loved it.A good old fashioned psychological thriller that is open to interpretation and leaves you thinking long after you finish!
I also read The Summer People and loved it too. I have stayed at the beach after summer season and was amazed at what changes after everyone leaves.This story had me chuckling to a point,but the ending was just weird and I loved it!
I am a new fan of Shirley Jackson! I Intend to read the rest of her stories in this edition!
