message 1: by Jack (new)

Jack I'm confused, why are Pynchon, Irving, and Freud "scary", is there something they've done i don't know about, or are their bodies of work "scary"?


message 2: by Brixton (new)

Brixton Sorry for the delayed reply, Jack.

I thought the list description explained the motive for this list clearly enough, but perhaps it sounds a little over-serious. Have you ever read something and felt like, "Dang, anyone who thinks of stuff like this is messed up!"? That's the idea I had in mind for this list.


Loveliest Evaris Why is Sigmund Freud on here? Yes he connects everything with sex but... It's not that he's a weirdo or anything, because his Oedipus Complex ideas and the anal, phallic, oral, etc. stages are actually pretty reasonable theories.... But I'll look at some of these other books...


message 4: by F. J. McGill (new)

F. J. McGill As I was reading Wuthering Height's, the dominating thought running through my head was, "Good Lord, Emily Bronte must have had a miserable f*cking life if this is considered romance."


message 5: by [deleted user] (new)

Honestly, Chuck Palahniuk writes disturbing books, but i don't find him particularly disturbing as a person


message 6: by [deleted user] (new)

Outlander, really? WOW

I agree! Her life must have been a horror!
