We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson – Book Review

The remains of a strange family live in a mansion outside of a small town. Two sisters and an uncle, the rest of the family murdered by poison at a tragic dinner. The townsfolk shun and despise them, but when a cousin turns up in hopes of claiming some of the family fortune, their existence is threatened.

I finished this book and found I still wasn’t quite sure what had happened. It’s fascinating and I loved the writing. I didn’t mind being confused and, oddly enough, I’m happy to not have any more information about what happened. Sometimes, an odd book is just an odd book.
