Book rêveur

Short notes on my travels through the Universe of Books. 

Shirley Jackson`s little gems.

We Have Always Lived in the Castle - Shirley Jackson, Joyce Carol Oates The Lottery (Tale Blazers) - Shirley Jackson

We Have Always Lived in the Castle is extremely well written and disturbing story about demons within ourselves. Loved every word of it, because every word had a meaning. Scary, gothic, playful and sick story about murderous girl and her sister.

 

I read Jackson`s scandalous story "The Lottery" as well and was shocked by the ending. Had to read it twice. Brilliant.
