Steven Paxton Singleton , the oldest, is the least susceptible. Shirley Lulu Wilson fosters a family of abandoned kittens that die one by one. Their mother died at the house in an incident that becomes one of the central mysteries of the series, and the trauma from that event has rippled through the lives of the surviving family members. Theo Kate Siegel is a psychologist who avoids all relationships. Luke Oliver Jackson-Cohen is a recovering heroin addict. Nell Victoria Pedretti starts to see the bent-neck lady again in adulthood after a profound personal loss. The first five episodes weave elegantly through the lives of the individual siblings, devoting an hour or so to each one by juxtaposing their current states with their experiences as children.
As befits the genre, Flanagan leans heavily on visual storytelling. Hill House is an architectural monstrosity with no balance or symmetry in its construction; its interiors are dull and lifeless, as if the fog that surrounds the exterior has seeped inside, too. If you can move past the practical quibbles would s-era flippers really be renovating cursed-looking properties nowhere near a school district?
The Haunting of Hill House
And they are. Halloween: Britain's most haunted stately homes. This may sound like nothing, but I cannot tell you the uncanny monotony of its nightly repetitions. We refused to recognise it, of course, being sane, a family of atheists and, above all, British. In fact, we strove not to use any word at all — not to acknowledge our summer haunting, certainly not to discuss it. And so the house tried harder, with what, I imagine, would be referred to as classic poltergeist activity.
We would return home to find the taps turned on full-force, requiring wrenching back into inaction. After the second time it happened, we had it disconnected. It happened again.
The Haunting of Sunshine Girl by Paige McKenzie
And, believe me, as I write this, I too think it is mad. Matters became worse. One night, the boarded-over fireplace in my room ripped open with a clamour. I wrenched my pillow over my ears, telling myself it must be a trapped bird. In the daylight, I investigated. My mother started behaving oddly — pensive, distracted. We eldest and Nanny Williams, our beloved summer-holiday addition, interrogated her. Finally, she cracked.
Ghost stories: There was something about our new home...
Waking in the night, she had seen a dead child. This is how she described it — not a ghost, but a dead child dressed in Victorian clothing, visible from the knees up. It had a certain logic: a child appearing to a mother. I became determined not to see any such thing. Sounds could be denied; but sights would be too appalling.
by Shirley Jackson
But my mother was not the only person to be so affected. It is colder than the rest of the house, now a repository for our old toys, which adds a certain Gothic element. Back then, however, my four-year-old brother occupied it. Like all youngest offspring, he was a golden child: charming, vivacious. That summer he changed: rendered quiet, hollow-eyed, with the air of a tiny old man.
I wonder] and the two men fighting over my bed, then one man hurts the other and the lady screams. My mother braved it to prove her wrong. Next morning, the room was locked. Somehow this was — and remains — the most horrifying thing I had ever heard.

One book at a time or several simultaneously? Morning or night? I like holding the paper book in my hand, but I also read books sometimes on an electronic device. I find the electronic device particularly convenient for travel.
Before electronic readers, I spent 15 years traveling every three weeks for a series of New Yorker pieces, and I sometimes found myself making a last-minute dash to the newsstand to snatch a novel off the paperback rack. In those days, I used to say that the page mystery, written with a sense of place, was put on earth to lighten the load of the weary traveling man.
