The House Next Door, by Anne Rivers Siddons

Title:  The House Next Door
Author:  Anne Rivers Siddons
Borrowed from Queen Anne's County Public Library (Audiobook)
Started: 11/8/2021
Finished: 11/12/2021

My third time reading this one, but first time as an audiobook.  I have enjoyed this one with each reading, including this third time.  Next to Hill House, this is the best Haunted House/Is it a Haunted House book out there. 

I've always leaned more towards the "not haunted, protagonists are going crazy" but this reading solidified it.  Colquit is definitely going insane, and her husband Walter, so afraid of losing her to the architect, feeds her growing illness. 

I love this book.

Some books just read like a Man Booker nominee -- this is definitely one of them.  I liked it, but I wasn't always sure why.  Again, just reads very much like a Man Booker nominee, and I tend to like those.
