TOP BOOKS THAT WERE HARD TO READ
I knew what I was getting into in terms of subject matter when I selected these following books, and yet they managed to surprise me in ways I didn't foresee.
American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis
A serial killer, I can't deal with. I've seen Dexter. But this guy has ''sexual issues'' that were too much to handle.
Maus by Art Spiegelman
Even with drawings, the subject matter of Auschwitz is always hard to read.
I learned that rape isn't the worst that could happen. Imagine your family and friends asking you over and over why you didn't try to escape.
Unwind by Neal Shusterman
That scene, when they numb a boy and remove his organs one by one while he's still conscient.
There are so many ways to commit suicide. Peters lists them all, how long it will take you as well as the pros and cons.
Piggy should have been the saddest part, but for me, it was reading about all those poor six-year-old kids surviving alone while the others casted them aside.
