My sister got me this book called Things white people like, the definitive guide to the taste of millions by Christian Lander,

I found it very disturbing.

House of Leaves, by Mark Z. Danielewski
Lunar Park, by Bret Easton Ellis. Although I'd recommend reading American Psycho first. Both are pretty weird and/or disturbing.
All of our days are numbered
I’ve taken some comfort
In knowing the wave has crested
Knowing I don’t have to be an exception

Have you read any Poe? That stuff is messed up, yet sometimes very good. If you haven't already, check out the black cat.

The Dice Man.

It's about a jaded, middle-aged psychiatrist who looks to spice up his life by rolling dice to make decisions.

He rolls dice to decide things like whether or not he should rape several people, act like Jesus for a week, screw with his patients fragile minds, etc.

It's pretty good. The ending is a little odd, but I think there's a sequel that I haven't read yet.

If you liked The Catcher in the Rye, I'd say it's likely you'll enjoy this book.

Don't waste your time.


Yeah, despite being very good it's not disturbing it all.

Yes I know what you meant.

For disturbing McCarthy read Blood Meridian. Actually a lot of his older books are a bit bizarre.

There are a lot of cool disturbing stories I've read, a fair few being shorts stories.

ROOM

its about a girl that gets kidnapped and is held captive in a small room, she has her captors child and the story is from his perspective, its kind of weird because he describes things that he doesn't realize are wrong, e.g. the old man comes in a makes the bed creek

Beyond Good & Evil (not disturbing, but interesting) by Nietzche;
1984;
things like Strange Objects and Force of Evil by Gary Crew;
some Kenneth Slessor;
Isobelle Carmody (try the Obernewtyn Chronicles, Scatterlings, Green Monkey Dreams etc);
Ursula le Guin;
The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde;
The Crucible by Arthur Miller;
Fahrenheit 451 and others by Ray Bradbury. Just thought I'd mention a few for starters.

And definitely Catch 22. For pure mind-****ing awesomeness.

i neverthought clockwok was that disturbing, but i read it when i was like 11 (im not really sure why, im not into books now really lol)

its a good read!

the most disturbing thing ive read is probably the manga for ichi the killer (i wouldnt reccomend it, it is a goddamn filthy unholy being that keeps you reading out of "wtf happens next" curiosity) and another one called "homunculus" (done by the same author, still ****ed up but more on a really psychological "mindfvck" level)

also, v for vendetta... i guess everything i remember really is just comic books and stuff which is sad, i just looked at my bookshelf for the first time in so long (not counting when i go to take out my cds) and its just lotr, harry potter, clockwork, and the hitchhikers guide (which is very good too, weird but not disturbing)

oh and ive also got roald dahl books, those were actually pretty good

It's not really anything physically disturbing, it's more about the psychological red flags that go off in that book, besides it seems to be a book which is loved by murderers...well at least some


Back on topic....

The Bible, I'm not trying to troll, but you have no idea how much background you get from reading it all...I was a big reason why I did well in High School and literature classes/tests

East of Eden: Great book, some weird parts but it's that kind of book which you won't be able to put down once you start

Anything by Lovecraft
Most things by Stephen King

Waiting for the Barbarians, by J.M Coetzee. This is a fantastic book, surreal allegorical story that paints a very brutal picture of imperialism.

The Trial, by Kafka. An absurdist almost delirious tale of an accused man who does not know what he is accused of.
Quote by BeefWellington

what's the point in being "philiosophical"?

Interesting question...
