In my younger days if I heard a book or movie was disturbing or hard to handle I generally took that as a challenge. Most books generally turned out to not be too bad, but occasionally I’d come across something that would leave me with a sick feeling in my stomach for weeks. I’ve largely outgrown this “genre” of late, but here are my picks for the ten most disturbing books of all time. Any one of these books is capable of leaving you feeling a little depressed at the least, and permanently scarred at the worst. I’d say enjoy, but that doesn’t really seem appropriate …
If you haven't read the Hunger Games you really should! They're pretty awesome. Check them out: If you're already a fan of the Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins...
Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland Anybody who grew up in the 1960s (and still remembers anything about it) can tell you what Lewis Carroll's classic children's book was really all about: A girl takes a "trip" down the rabbit hole and finds herself in a surreal world where animals start talking to her. After she eats some "mushrooms," everything starts to change sizes before her eyes. She meets an over-stimulated "white rabbit" and a stoned caterpillar smoking a "shitload of drugs."

in the 10th grade, I did a book report on "A Clockwork Orange". When I told the teacher upon which book I was basing my report, she said, "Hmmm... that was a weird movie...
When I read this list and came across "Bored of the Rings" (which I have never been [bored of it], but I still enjoyed it anyway), I immediately thought of another, maybe not so well known political satirical play that was published as a play, almost lost in the sands of time: "MacBird" by Barbara Garson. A parody of Macbeth with Lyndon Johnson as the star - concerning the murder of the former king (JFK) and usurption of power by the murderer - MacBird (LBJ). This satire, famously made LBJ furious but was well liked by JFK's brother, Robert Kennedy. Initially no publisher would handle it until Barbara Garson's husband initially had 5, 000 copies printed privately and then after the book had sold over 100,000 copies, Grove Press (who had previously turned it down) became the official publisher.
Recently, someone asked Reddit for a list of the best science fiction books of all time. Being a fan of sci-fi, and wanting to expand my own reading list, I thought it would be helpful to tally the results and preserve them here for future reference.

The Boy with His Heart on His Sleeve and the Girl Who Never Tried to Fix Him by Max Andrew Dubinsky I was born with my heart on my sleeve.
