Just keeping track of the books I've read and my thoughts on them.

We Have Always Lived in the Castle

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

This cover is a bit creepy, the book I have is a lot simpler. I think if I had seen that cover I might have hesitated in reading the book.

It builds up really nicely, Merricat keeps giving us pieces of the puzzle throughout the book, until the picture is complete.

It's one of those books that don't find it necessary to spell-out everything for you, which is a nice change from some other books.

You can really get engaged with the characters, and Merricat keeps drawing you into her magical world.

I really really enjoyed it.
