What is the scariest book you have ever read?
I have to say that the most frightened I have ever been is after reading Stephen King's Salem's Lot. I slept with the lights on for weeks after.
I read this for the first time in the late 80's I think it started my fascination with the paranormal :O)
first published 1975
It's on its 17th Impression
'Salem's Lot is a small New England town with white clapboard houses, tree-lined streets, and solid church steeples. That summer in 'Salem's Lot was a summer of home-coming and return; spring burned out and the land lying dry, crackling underfoot. Late that summer, Ben Mears returned to 'Salem's Lot hoping to cast out his own devils... and found instead a new unspeakable horror.
A stranger had also come to the Lot, a stranger with a secret as old as evil, a secret that would wreak irreparable harm on those he touched and in turn on those they loved.
All would be changed forever—Susan, whose love for Ben could not protect her; Father Callahan, the bad priest who put his eroded faith to one last test; and Mark, a young boy who sees his fantasy world become reality and ironically proves the best equipped to handle the relentless nightmare of 'Salem's Lot
I have to say vampires have come a long way since then! I am no longer afraid of them I now want to sleep with them LOL!!!
