They become engaged, eventually marrying. Now adults, they're reunited by the suicide of their youngest sister, which forces them to finally confront the ghosts of their own pasts.

The house finds a way to isolate visitors from the rest of the world, and frightens us with our own demons. She asked her mother, who lived in California, to help find information about the dwelling. As the most fragile and overwrought member of the group, her rising fear affects the reader's, until both are bonded in their mounting dread of what is to occur around the next corner and over the next page.
As far as chilling elements are concerned, the book offers very little in the way of supernatural events. ولكن هذا فعلا ماشعرت به خلال قراءتي للرواية واكثر ما ارعبني بالحكاية. But when the fight-or-flight response associated with fear is triggered in a secure setting—you are home with your significant other and the doors are locked, or you are at a Spooky World funhouse where you know the scares are manufactured—the adrenaline jolt can be a pretty fun thing to experience. Eleanor was a paranoid, insecure pain in the ass, Theodora was an immature bitchy cow, and Luke was a boring conceited little wanker. The first lines indicate that the house holds darkness within great opening! I was disappointed by this book to be honest.
The attention to detail behind and in front of the camera was astonishing to me. Luke claims a bowler hat his mother finds in the attic and wears it frequently. This is probably the hardest question to answer because Hill House defies all neat and logical explanation. Crain is half overjoyed to see the love of her life, half hella pissed that he took the kids away from the house.

In 2017, it was announced that would be adapting the novel into a series,. تخيل عندما يأتي لك شخصا لا يعرفك سوي منذ ايام ويطلب أن يعيش معاك ويظل معاك طوال الوقت.
The effect of Hill House on the various characters evolve subtly, with infinitesimal shifts in their psyches. This is an impressive bit of work and definitely belongs among the classics of literate horror novels. A super scary book with sentences that you want to stop and marvel over. Respect it as much as Shirley Jackson respects you, the reader. I set on lunch at one.
Eleanor and Theodora are selected because they have experienced phenomenon before, and both exhibit minds that are more receptive to psychic and telekinetic occurrences. It's begins with something immensely small--Theodora painting Eleanor's toenails red without Eleanor's permission. Dudley suggests the increasingly-erratic Olivia needs to spend time away from the house, sharing some of the strange experiences he and Mrs. This show, it should be said, draws a dire picture of mental illness. It's not scary in the least. The ghost of Olivia appears twice, attacking Luke at the funeral and then Hugh and Theo in Shirley's office, also putting buttons over the eyes of Nell's corpse.
I should have known those bastages were just trying to trick me! The ending left a lot of unanswered questions. Suspicion immediately falls on Eleanor, and you can see her struggle with what to say, her thoughts veering back to the red of her toenails and focusing on the fact that Theodora will now have to stay in her room and wear her clothes, and you can't help wonder if all this is Eleanor's elaborate revenge. It is easy to see that she has never really had friends before and is hungry for acceptance. One of the biggest lessons of The Haunting of Hill House is that a ghost's existence doesn't follow the laws of space and time that we understand in our mortal existence.
