    Dreamthorp. It was by Dean Koontz I think. When a book begins with a person's intestines getting wrapped around a tree... You don't forget said book! *shudders*

    Does it help to know it was a hoax?

    My answer is Beloved by Toni Morrison.

    Northwoods Deep by Joel Arnold.

    Scary, creepy, disturbing, uncomfortable content....

    I couldn't stop reading it but some parts were just so disturbing.

    I've been reading about serial killers for many decades so most of what I've read is disturbing/scary/gory/haunting in one way or another. But one of my favorite most haunting and unforgettable books isn't of that sort at all. It's called Meeting Rozzy Halfway and it's rather sad but riveting. I re-read it every few years and always think about it for a long time after.
    --I'm located in Western PA.
    --I found NC in late 2004, CG since February 2005, started going grey in late 2005.
    --My hair is 3B with some 3A, texture-medium/fine, porosity-normal except for the ends which are porous, elasticity-normal.
    --My long time favorite products are Suave & VO5 conditioners, LA Looks Sport Gel, oils, honey, vinegar.

    Slightly guano:

    I'm re-thinking whether I should read any of these extremely scary books! I saw a movie about the Green River Killer and it gave me nightmares.

    I think I'll stick to Scandinavian murder mysteries which for some reason seem relatively bloodless so far.

    I will warn you, there are some 'adult' parts that I had to read a couple of times cause I was like, I did not just read that! It stuck in my head long after reading it, but it was scary and I like horror books. I remember starting in 7th and 8th grade reading RL Stine (not goosebumps) and Christopher Pike. I would occasionally come across some pretty scary books in the YA Horror section.

    I can recommend some more if you'd like, I would just have to get my Kindle. Theyre the cheap ones too, but I always go off of good ratings.

    Some other cheap horror ebooks

    The Grind Show by Phil Tucker - this one is a little sci fi but very good.

    The Dark by Jason Brant

    Coffin Cam by Phil Tucker - I was disappointed how short this was, but it was good.

    None of the books I read are overly deep or involved. They're pretty easy to read. Life is complicated enough.

    Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury. Nothing about it is overtly scary or gory, but it's chilling.

    Gosh ladies look at all these comments.:blob5: I have some reading to catch up on.

    I also read this book called Mister B. Gone by Clive Barker. I couldn't put the book down! And what's funny is the author warned to put the book down or else.....:angryfire:!! And that didn't stop me. LOL

    My Sweet Audrina by VC Andrews. I know right? But it isn't a series. Its one novel and so creepy. A family who lies about a daughter that was killed under bad circumstances just to find out that they lied to the daughter it happened to. UPSETTING!

    And The Perfume by German writer Patrick Suskind. So freaky.

    Mix of 3s, thick, coarse, medium porosity

    Current hair styling technique: rake with a scrunch at the end. (works with my coarse hair)

    Any book by VC Andrews was creepy!

    I just read 'Princess' by Jeff Menapace. It was a 0.99 ebook and it was eerie. Super. Its really short. About 700 Kindle pages, so around 125 if it were a book.

    A short story that really got to me was The Yellow Wallpaper.

    Very disturbing.

    The Ghost of Flight 401 by John G. Fuller.

    Then in my early teens (probably 13), I saw the movie late one night on UPN 33 (remember when it was called that?), and bawled my little eyes out.

    Does anyone remember when UPN (Channel 33) used to play old movies in the middle of the night?


    Well, after reading some of the other replies here, I'll definitely be adding to my book list this summer... :occasion9:


    EDIT: I answered based on the OP's question: haunting and unforgettable. After reading the summaries on the books you all posted... this true story doesn't compare much. It's not disturbing or 'serial-killerish' but still an unforgettable story for me, at least.

    One that always stayed with me was "Gentlemen and Players" by Joanne Harris. Really captivating plot and interesting characters. It's not scary but it is disturbing in parts, especially when aspects of the plot start to come together, but it keeps you guessing all the way through. Highly recommend!
  • curlysophiecurlysophie Posts: 216Registered Users
    "Every Last Word" by Tamara Ireland Stone. I wouldn't say it's disturbing, but the plot twist about 75-80% of the way through the book was just insane!!
