    When you watch a movie or play a game, you're watching somebody else's vision of horror.

    When you read, even if it's scary, I think your brain always makes it bearable. You create the vision.

    I think it depends. Sometimes books have scared me witless, more than a film could, but its the same vise versa.

    In a film its a more tangible image, but sometimes (I don't read very many scary books, or watch many scary films cause Im a pansy) when its a book you are left with your mind and they image can kind of grow and get out of control. I'm not sure if I'm even making much sense to myself here.

    Re the Red Wedding - it completely shocked me in the book - and I much preferred it in the book. But I'm not sure if that's because with the tv show I knew what was going to happen (as PIB said). But I feel in the book there was more tension...maybe.

    The Truth About Alice by Jennifer Mathieu.

    My best friend told me about this book and she really wanted me to read it.

    But what I really want to read is a horror/ scary book. I love Stephen King but his books don't scare me. Any authors or books you guys can think of I would appreciate it.

    Gone with the Wind

    A propagandist account if ever there was one. Fit for the dustbin. Unbelievable how some folks can happily gobble it up. "Oh, the wonder of Dixieland!" Wonder indeed.

    How about some Edgar Allan Poe? Not that his stories are very scary either, but they are great!

    Other than that, the only stuff that's really scared me was reading Goosebumps when I was little

    I love Edgar Allan Poe! His writing is amazing.

    I read Goosebumps when I was younger too.

    I don't care that the main target demographic is teenaged boys, James Patterson's "Daniel X" is a fantastic series. There's even been a manga made based on the books.
    I said, "Hi, Greg. I'm the creepy girl." He chuckled, then wanted a handshake and I gave it. I wanted a hug and he gave it. One of his sons was there, too. Cute. Then Pete got him to autograph my sign for me because I was too polite to ask myself since he was on his way to eat. Pete also took this of photo of him holding it. - 8/2/2014.

    autobiography of a blue-eyed devil: my life and times in a racist, imperialist society.

    bought it for the title, staying for the soul crushing non-fiction.
    I wrote a four word letter.
