Top 10 Scariest Books of All Time
The Top Ten
This is the most brilliant book I've ever had the pleasure to read! It's amazing how much character development there is here, Stephen King is a genius! You really start caring and rooting for the characters, I though the Shining was the most horrifying book ever, till I read IT, thank you for the creeps and goosebumps King!
An amazing mixture of terrifying scenes with bouts of brilliant description and writing, characterization, and pure genius in the flow of the plot itself. It will forever haunt my dreams from time to time, a good souvenir from this massive journey.
It is fear. It is pure fear. Everything in this book revolves around fear. The reason this book was even made is to scare people. Also there is a sewer orgy.
Amazing book! It keeps you up all night!
This is absolutely terrifying!
Hated reading it but just couldn't stop
Redrum...Redrum...Redrum... Stephen King's third novel was definitely a true tale of horror, from the psychotic Jack Torrance as the tangible threat, hunting down his family with a croquet mallet, to the spirits of the Overlook Hotel as the hidden, yet frighteningly present threat, slowly driving the Torrances into madness.
Classic but horryfing
The scariest scene is here’s Johnny!
Says bad words... don't like it
Sometime dead is better
Chilling and very original collection of short stories
Everyone's a book of blood
While the present tense may take a while to get used to ('Sterling looked down the empty corridor'), Thomas Harris' thriller is amazing and surprisingly terrifying, beautifully made into a suspenseful movie.
It is the most scary horror book I have ever read
You’re gonna need a bigger boat.
It made me creeped out, something no story has EVER done before!
I read a lot of Stephen King books, and this is the only one that actually terrified me. I'm not going to tell you what happens, but I'll tell you it is completely unlike any other Stephen King book.
Not quite as terrifying as It, but this book (and the movie for that matter) are some of the most terrifying things that I have ever read.
