TOP 10 MOST DISTURBING BOOKS
And by complete coincidence, after posting about the new trailer for upcoming film, The Road, I find it's listed in The Top 10 Most Disturbing Books Of All Time at Popcrunch. While I agree The Road is bleak and leaves the reader feeling despondent, I'm not sure I would classify it as one of the most disturbing books ever written. It was good to see Hubert Selby Jr's Requiem for a Dream listed but surprising to find his novel Last Exit to Brooklyn omitted, which still stands as one of the most horrific books I've ever read. There's a few books I've never heard of but sound very interesting. Looks like my Amazon Wish List just got a little bit bigger.
