We Have Always Lived in the Castle is a deliciously unsettling novel about a perverse, isolated, and possibly murderous family and the struggle that ensues when a cousin arrives at their estate.

    Die Wespenfabrik. von 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.… (mehr)

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

    Mord im Gurkenbeet von 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.

    Der Berg der Träume von Arthur Machen (Nialle)

    The Behaviour of Moths von 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.… (mehr)

    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.

Shirley Jackson's last novel is the really good kind of creepy read. ( )

Seemingly this could have been written yesterday, but it's from 1962. Timeless, then. I thought this might have been inspired by Leonora Carrington's 'The Hearing Trumpet' (especially as there is a character named Carrington) but all of Leonora's writing wasn't published until the seventies. And now I can see how so many of the books I love have probably been inspired by 'Castle'. That new cover is on point. A story of two sisters with a history and a hateful town. Yes, a rock is involved. ( )

Shirley Jackson is a genius and this proves it. ( )

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. ( )

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.

Merricat, said Connie, would you like a cup of tea?
Oh no, said Merricat, you’ll poison me.
Merricat, said Connie, would you like to go to sleep?
Down in the boneyard ten feet deep!
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.
