After reading some of the reviews, I wasn’t sure I would enjoy (if that’s the right word) this book, but I did. Yes, it’s very difficult to keep all of the horrible adults and their equally horrible children straight in your head, but it’s worth trying. It’s definitely not as complex or intriguing as Jackson’s later novels, but it still has that undercurrent of dread that marks her best work.
