The Haunting of Hill House

The Haunting of Hill House - Shirley Jackson, Laura Miller I did not enjoy this book as much as I hoped I would. In fact I barely enjoyed it at all. I hated the writing style and found it hard to follow. Frequently I found myself thinking "What the heck does that mean?....huh? what are they talking about?" The characters were unlikeable and the dialogue was unrealistic. I did take into consideration the time in which the book was written but I've read many excellent books from times long past and just no, this just wasn't good to me which is a real disappoinment.
