Luke Sanderson, inheritor of the mysterious Hill House, invites a supernatural investigator and several guests interested in the paranormal to his eighty-year-old mansion in the hopes that they can experience and record supernatural events. As time passes, the group experiences increasingly terrifying and unexplainable disturbances, and one guest—Eleanor Vance—seems to be a particular target of the strange occurrences.
The Haunting of Hill House is one of the most famous ghost stories in literary history, and was a finalist for the National Book Award of 1959. Lauded by horror legends like Stephen King and named “the greatest haunted-house story ever written” by the Wall Street Journal, it has been adapted into films several times and served as a foundation for many modern ghost stories.
