You must read this book, if you can . . .

I will never forget when I read it many years ago. I guess I was around 14 or 15; it's hard to remember. But I do remember this: I have never read anything in my life that scared me in such a memorable way as did this book.

You know how when you put a bookmark in a book and lay it down for the night? I not only had to put the book in another room for the night, but I had to make sure there were at least two sets of closed doors between me and it.

What a feast of horror!
