    Rebecca por Daphne Du Maurier (teelgee)

    The Wasp Factory por Iain Banks (taz_)
    taz_: I suspect that Iain Banks' "Wasp Factory" character Frank Cauldhame was inspired by Shirley Jackson's Merricat, as these two darkly memorable teenagers share a great many quirks - the totems and protections to secure their respective "fortresses", the obsessive superstitions that govern their daily lives and routines, their isolation and cloistered pathology, their eccentric families and dark secrets. Be warned, though, that "The Wasp Factory" is a far more explicit and grisly tale than the eerily genteel "Castle" and certainly won't appeal to all fans of the latter.… (mais)

    A Head Full of Ghosts por Paul Tremblay (sturlington)
    sturlington: Sisters named Merry. Tremblay was clearly influenced strongly by Jackson.

    The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie por Alan Bradley (citygirl)
    citygirl: Castle is much darker and Flavia is more adorable than creepy (Merricat is quite creepy), but if you're interested in unusual young protagonists, with a very particular world view, try these.

    The Hill of Dreams por Arthur Machen (Nialle)
    Nialle: Young, emotionally complex, imaginative narrators in isolated situations - have something going on that the reader only glimpses before the big reveal

    The Franchise Affair por Josephine Tey (lahochstetler)
  9. 11
    The Behaviour of Moths por Poppy Adams (sparemethecensor)
    sparemethecensor: Two sisters with a mysterious relationship and dark history together, unreliable narrators, dark, old, rural houses with mysteries of their own... Though the books take different plotlines, they share so many similar elements that people who enjoyed the setting and storytelling of one will likely enjoy the other.… (mais)

  12. 01
    The Island at the End of the World por Sam Taylor (passion4reading)
    passion4reading: Though set within completely different landscapes, situations and time periods, each novel has the central theme of an outsider intruding upon an isolated close-knit family group, with disastrous consequences.

This has been on my to read list for years and I finally got around to it when my kid decided to read it for summer reading and I thought I'd read along for company.

Basically, I felt like it was a really good read. I remembered Shirley Jackson from her important short story "The Lottery" and so I was prepared for something dark. The characters were well drawn but she creates a very topsy turvy atmosphere that keeps the reader from really knowing what is real and what is invented.
It is definitely an interesting exercise for a reader who sympathy is split and confused as the story goes on and on.

There is quite a lot of repetition in the book. I know it is intentional but towards the end I found it became unwieldy and a bit annoying.

Excellent pet cat - so extra points for that! ( )

Shirley Jackson's "The Lottery" has stayed with me since I read it at school, so I had high hopes of this going in. It didn't have quite the same impact (maybe because nearly 50 years has gone by) but it was still very enjoyable with the off-kilter viewpoint of the narrator and the slow reveal of just how off-kilter it was plus the disruptive influence of the cousin's intrusion.

Shirley Jackson does not write normal novels, but damn, she writes effective, quirky ones, and this is no exception. I wasn't sure I was going to enjoy this when I first started it, but by the end, I fully recognized the genius that went into this. Highly recommended. ( )

Wowzers! Ms. Jackson does not disappoint. I watched the film first and loved it. Great caset; excellent story. They did the book justice.

So very dark and mysterious. Sisters and their invalid uncle living in the family home. The town hates them for their wealth and because one of the sisters allegedly murdered of the rest of their family. The whole family is clearly traumatized from the deaths of their family years prior and they live as shut-ins in their home.

A visit from a sistant familt member throws things upside down for the family of three. And because of shenanigans, the house catches fire. A good bit is destroyed and rhenthe rest of the hateful town helps the fire by attacking the house they've always been so envious of. Just horrible people ina vicious, violent frenzie leavint the sisters hiding until they've all gone.

The whole thing was mysterious, strange and very sad. A very good read and I look forward to working my way through the author's catalog. ( )

Of the precocious children and adolescents of mid-twentieth-century American fiction ... none is more memorable than eighteen-year-old "Merricat" of Shirley Jackson's masterpiece of Gothic suspense We Have Always Lived in the Castle (1962).

My name is Mary Katherine Blackwood. I am eighteen years old, and I live with my sister Constance. I have often thought that with any luck at all I could have been born a werewolf, because the two middle fingers on both my hands are the same length, but I have had to be content with what I had. I dislike washing myself, and dogs, and noise. I like my sister Constance, and Richard Plantagenet, and Amanita phalloides, the death-cup mushroom. Everyone else in my family is dead.

You will be wondering about that sugar bowl, I imagine. Is it still in use? you are wondering; has it been cleaned? you may very well ask; was it thoroughly washed?
Our house was a castle, turreted and open to the sky.
