Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
Rate this book
Clear rating
Dialogue and descriptions were banal at worst, passable at best. Emotions were too overt, as subtext was a language the author did little to express, and it regurgitates many ideas of the genre already put to better use in superior stories. The centr ...more

Fear by L. Ron Hubbard
Rate this book
Clear rating
The premise is intriguing, and the outcome is unexpected. Fear takes the notion of superstition and religion, applies it to a world where it is highly regarded, and shuns anyone who is at all skeptical of it. When these aspects of potential fantasy m ...more

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl
Rate this book
Clear rating
This is probably one of the more effective children's books I've encountered, because it doesn't fall victim to a self-censor. Most books of the genre feel the need to dumb down reality, take away anything deemed too dark, and in turn, diminish its o ...more

Alice's Adventure in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
Rate this book
Clear rating
Non-sensical strangeness and dark untertones permeate the story, though oftentimes I don't feel that these elements are effectively utilized to provide enjoyment. Though on the surface it's fresh and whimsical, underneath there's not much in way of a ...more

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum
Rate this book
Clear rating
Regardless of the book's popularity, the aesthetics most individuals associate to the story are those of the overtly vibrant film. Upon reading Baum's original story, I found that this projection didn't hold up. The proposed munchkin characters aren' ...more

Carrie by Stephen King
Carrie
by Stephen King (Goodreads Author)
Rate this book
Clear rating
Carrie has a certain three-dimensionallity which most modern horrors lack. In modern horror, aesthetic is a common crutch under the belief that violent imagery alone is somehow a perfect formula for success in the genre. Beyond the occassional flavor ...more

Pet Sematary by Stephen King
Pet Sematary
by Stephen King (Goodreads Author)
Rate this book
Clear rating
Stephen King leaves no aspect of familial death untouched. There's the loss of a beloved pet, the grateful passing of a tormented relative, loss of a lover, loss of a close friend, and most taboo of all, the death of an innocent child. No doubt, the ...more

The Red Badge of Courage by Stephen Crane
Rate this book
Clear rating
I recall the Red Badge of Courage as having a strong set of thematic, empathetic elements. At one time or another, we've all projected ourselves onto a possible situation where we could only imagine how we would react. We gauge ourselves in accordanc ...more

The Dark Is Rising by Susan Cooper
Rate this book
Clear rating
Highly atmospheric, Susan Cooper's The Dark Is Rising takes the simple concepts of good versus evil, banally embodied by forces of light and darkness, and escalates it to masterful levels. As a child, I found the story to have a subtle, unsettling fe ...more

The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown
Rate this book
Clear rating
Normally, I'd find a plot such as this to be convoluted, but no matter how many plot twists it throws at you, the story's progression is grounded in cause and effect. It's suprising throughout, but there are no stray details which break the story. Th ...more
