dahmers love zombie: Yeah, somebody's never read The 120 Days of Sodom by de Sade. I haven't ever finished it. Got to the part with the "Hell Libertine" and said nope.
AdmirableSnackbar: Of all the options for a Stephen King entry, they chose an undead character? Should have been Randall Flagg. That was uncomfortable to read.
dickfreckle: I confess that Easton-Ellis is a guilty pleasure of mine. But that scene with the rodent and the PVC is just...man that was just disturbing.
SlothB77: no entombed alive? fail. that is a horrible death to suffer.
Uncle Tractor: I wouldn't call it over-rated, but IMHO the gore distracted from what I saw as the real theme in the book, which was a guy who was so numbed to humanity that he only saw people in terms of what they wore or owned. That's what I'm left with, anyway.
rjakobi: Dude...Dennis Nedry got freaking disemboweled by a dinosaur and even HE ranks under Dumbledore?
devilskware: NO The Painted Bird? If I recall correctly, a prostitute gets a glass bottle full of manure shoved into her vagina and then gets her pelvis stomped on.
Richard Roma: dahmers love zombie: Yeah, somebody's never read The 120 Days of Sodom by de Sade. I haven't ever finished it. Got to the part with the "Hell Libertine" and said nope.Does it even quality as a novel? I used to work shipping/receiving in a bookstore and one of our ongoing jokes was to, whenever we got a copy of that book in, open it at random and read the first sentence our eyes fell on. It doesn't appear to be anything other than nonstop descriptions of sexual sadism. I've written grocery lists with more of a plot.
Miss Stein: How about the original Snow White? At Snow White's wedding, the wicked stepmother queen is forced to put on red-hot iron shoes and dance in them till she drops dead.
Wasn't Looking at his Neck: I'll just say that *Spoiler*....Rubin's in Where the Red Ferns Grows was a migraine inducing yet wonderful passage to read while I was 8 to 10. Don't remember precise age
gingerjet: I own two of his books but never read them. Whenever I see the titles all I can think of is Easton-Ellis as a bitter old queen banging twinks a dozen at a time and trolling twitter. Which kind of ruins any possible enjoyment I would get out of the books.
TofuTheAlmighty: Basically every death in Infinite Jest was more gruesome than the majority of those on the list. David Foster Wallace was a weird (but brilliant) dude.
Khazar-Khum: Lenny's death in Of Mice & Men was quick & clean.Pa Finn--same thing(Huckleberry Finn).Where's Edward II?
Uncle Tractor: Madbassist1: The gore is the only thing worth reading in that over-rated piece of shiat.I wouldn't call it over-rated, but IMHO the gore distracted from what I saw as the real theme in the book, which was a guy who was so numbed to humanity that he only saw people in terms of what they wore or owned. That's what I'm left with, anyway.
Barricaded Gunman: MagSeven: I would put little Stanislovas' death from The Jungle (Upton Sinclair). Poor kid passed out from sickness/hunger on the floor of the factory and was eaten by rats. That freaked me out as a 4th grader.I'm more freaked out by the idea of you reading The Jungle in the 4th grade.
The Slush: Also, where is Lovecraft?
stoli n coke: The Slush: That is a pretty weak list. I haven't read American Psycho, but I'm pretty sure axe to the face isn't the worst in that book.Not even close. However, if I had to do it over again, I'd have skipped the book. It just kept bouncing from unrelentingly gruesome to mind-numbingly boring.It's one of the few instances where I thought the movie was much better than the book.
