But now, a new investigation has been launched, bringing four strangers to Belasco House in search of the ultimate secrets of life and death. A wealthy publisher, brooding over his impending death, has paid a physicist and two mediums to establish the facts of life after death once and for all. For one night, they will investigate the Belasco House and learn exactly why the townsfolk refer to it as the Hell House.

Merricat Blackwood lives on the family estate with her sister Constance and her uncle Julian. Not long ago there were seven Blackwoods—until a fatal dose of arsenic found its way into the sugar bowl one terrible night. Acquitted of the murders, Constance has returned home, where Merricat protects her from the curiousity and hostility of the villagers. Their days pass in happy isolation until cousin Charles appears. Only Merricat can see the danger, and she must act swiftly to keep Constance from his grasp.

“All cat stories start with the statement: ‘My mother, who was the first cat, told me this…’ ” – Merricat Blackwood

When I first read We Have Always Lived in the Castle , I immediately gave it to my girlfriend. She read it in two nights and ran to give it to her sister, who devoured it and gave it to their mother. For all I know that copy is halfway to Tuscaloosa by now.

But what stands out to me the most in We Have Always Lived in the Castle is its fascinating female characters, especially the book’s narrator, Merricat, who is, for my money, one of the greatest literary creations of American fiction.

An audiobook is a recording that is primarily of the spoken word as opposed to music. While it is often based on a recording of commercially available printed material, this is not always the case. It was not intended to be descriptive of the word "book" but is rather a recorded spoken program in its own right and not necessarily an audio version of a book.
