The Scariest Book You've Ever Read

By Dustin Rowles | Comment Diversions | October 28, 2009 | Comments ()


I was thinking about the upcoming Cannonball Read Part II, and all the books I have sitting around waiting to be read. One of those, House of Leaves, by Mark Z. Danielewski, I am afraid to read. I think all the hype psyched me out -- and after reading the first several pages when I got it, I was immediately freaked out and put it away. So my question is, are there any books you are afraid to read -- or any you have read once and were so frightened by, you'd never go near it again?

So, in the spirit of Cindy's starting point, I ask: 1) Are there any books you're afraid to read, and 2) what is the scariest book you've ever read?
