• It was a fun look into Shirley Jackson’s domestic life with sarcastic aplomb. – Chelsea
• I found it entertaining and witty, and at times, even laugh out loud funny! I appreciated the motif of the 1950s housewife who couldn’t conform to the expectations of the time period – nor did she really desire to! I would like to read more by Shirley Jackson after this experience. – Hillary
• I enjoyed reading this book. It was easy, light, funny and well-written. A good break from some of our heavier topics. – Steph
• I really didn’t like reading this book. Instead of enjoying the humor and sarcasm, I was annoyed by it. – Danica
