Recommended for: Guilty Pleasure Seekers :)
Read in December, 2002

Read this in college for relief when I could no longer stand The Canterbury Tales and the other horrors that were revealed to me after I declared my English major.

This book scared the living crap out of me, to the point that I couldn't read it unless my boyfriend was in my dorm room.

The best part? Unlike most thrillers, this one's not all's well that end's well. CHRIST it was scary. Loved it.

Nicole OMG this book was awesome!

I read it in undergrad as well for a "detective fiction" class (I had to read more of Marx and Freud rather than Chaucer for my major, so it was a fun fluff class) ... I had to read it for my final. Consequently I read the whole thing in a night and it scared the crap out of me! so much that I was too frightened to get up and go to the bathroom.

The movie sucked, but this was a fantastic, yes guilty pleasure, read.
