    Hi, I'm getting ready to make this my 1st book of 2017. It's not the typical book that I'm drawn to, but it seems just kooky and weird enough to make me want to read it.

    Anyone here read it? Did you like it? Thought it was dumb, etc.?

    Thanks, Happy reading in the New Year!

    I really liked 'We Have Always Lived in the Castle'. It was certainly unusual, and that alone tends to be something I go for, but it was also superbly written. An excellent portrayal of dysfunctional family secrets, but there was also a real nobility to some of the characters, especially Constance. I've always liked Shirley Jackson as a writer. She wrote some wonderful short stories, too.
