I just read Haunted by Chuck Palahniuk. If any of you have read this, I'm sure you understand this post. The book was one of the most disturbing I've read. The short story Guts has caused 60 people to faint in public readings and for good reason. I won't spoil anything, because you can read the book online for free and should check it out yourself, but let's just say swimming pools aren't my favorite hangout spot anymore. Some other disturbing books I've read include: The Road by Cormac McCarthy American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis The Girl Next Door by Jack Ketchum (True Story!) Hogg by Samuel R. Delaney (I do not recommend this to anyone. Please read a description before attempting.) Have you read a disturbing book that gives you chills for days? Has there ever been a time where you just couldn't read a book further, because of the subject matter? Do you have any more suggestions I should read that would fit this category or any others?
