Good Horror Novels to read
Posted 12 October 2012 - 01:08 PM
What kind of horror novels do you like - more supernatural scary or more psychologically scary?
And one more suggestion (not really horror, but a damn fine read) is Red Dragon by Thomas Harris.
Also, Frankenstein is beautifully written (although I like it more for the blatant statements about society).

I will recommend a book I just started that has great reviews and is one of the books of the year. The Guardians by Canadian Andrew Pyper, and there is a hockey team in it. So far so good. Hard to put down. Pychologically scarry. 386 page jaunt.

"Andrew Pyper's The Guardians is everything you could ask for in a thriller. It's psychologically unnerving, moves like a bullet and is fraught with so much tension you might crack a tooth reading it. Outstanding in every way." - Dennis Lehane
"A beautifully crafted haunted-house thriller. The horror Pyper evokes has less in common with Stephen King and things that go bump in the night than the fevered imaginiation of Joseph Conrad ferrying himself and the reader into a heart of darkness. . . . Compellingly readable and stylistically impressive." - Calgary Herald
"It's set in Canada and definitely has a personal feel to it as a result. Pretty good so far, in fact so good I will spend part of my Friday night reading it." - ME
