Book club voted and the winner is…

We Have Always Lived in the Castle, by Shirley Jackson.

So far a few very keen readers have finished the book and are impressed – that bodes well.  I am about half way through and am quite compelled by it.  It is very different to what I thought it was going to be.  From page one you feel a little chilled, like something isn’t quite right in ‘the castle’.  The characters are enticing from the start and despite their strangeness you feel a warmth and empathy towards them.  I have no idea how it is going to end (which is how I like it!).
