The 10 Most Disturbing Books Of All Time

0

Everyone has read something at some point that left them feeling like they'd been kicked in the gut. PopCrunch has a list of ten books that pretty much guaranteed to leave you feeling that way.

Take, for instance, The Naked Lunch by William S. Burroughs:

Naked Lunch is another ode to drug addiction. While it’s not as flat out depressing as Requiem For A Dream, it’s a hell of a lot more strange. The story is told in a series of dream like vignettes that never allow the reader to really get their bearings and includes acts of child murder, auto-erotic asphyxiation, lots of drug use, cop killing, and orgies. The book was banned in many sections of the United States when it came out in 1959, and it’s not hard to see why. This book is easily one of the most bizarre I’ve ever read.

Suffer the Children by John Saul. At one point a 13 year old girl kills a cat with a rock and dresses it in doll clothes, then she has a tea party with it in a mineshaft and ends up swearing at it because the corpse won't respond and then beating it and finally cutting it's head off with a butcher knife in a mad rage. It made me really sad to see her abuse the animal so horribly.

I think Lolita by Nabokov should be on the list. It's the only book that has ever made me too sick to be able to finish it.
