I finished We Have Always Lived in the Castle this morning instead of grading papers, which meant I had to grade while out watching the White Sox season opener (5-0 good guys). It was less than ideal, but hey, books have to be read.
I liked it a lot. It had a really unsettling tone, and I spent the whole time waiting for answers and dreading what would happen. But I wanted a bit more. Yes, I got answers, but I really wanted one character's motivation for something, unless I somehow missed it. (Sorry for being vague, but I'm trying to avoid spoilers.)
Should you read it? If you like creepy stuff, sure. It's a really quick read. And then maybe you and I can discuss whether things at the end were clear or not.
