The Tropic of Night, by Michael Gruber. Its about Santeria, and the psycho-tropical drugs involved in African witchcraft. Masterful characters, and beautifully written

I love all Wally Lamb's books. He is a great author - I never felt his books messed with my head in any way. I would highly recommend all of them.

I'm an avid horror reader and am in love with Stephen King, but the only book that really messed with my head was Pet Cematary; I could not finish it--this is the only time it has ever happened, and I did not watch the movie. that I think about it, H.P. Lovecraft's books mess with my head; I am simultaneously enthralled, revulsed and confused

I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.

Dean Koontz-Odd Thomas, when I finished it, I was a bit numb at the ending, I had fallen in love with the characters.

The Shack is the only book that had me so engrossed that I finished it in a single sitting, up till 4 something in the morning reading it.

Halfway through the Lovely Bones I decided it had become garbage but after starting so good I had to finish the chore of reading it hoping it would find the thing it had lost somewhere along the way.

Stephen King- The Long Walk, or even The Running Man, or The Rage, and Roadwork. Of his books, the Bachman books seem to have the most relevance to today's society.

And of course the Dark Tower, before it turned to crap somewhere around the sixth book.

Of all the books I've read, the one that messed with my head the most is, Gerald's Game by Stephen King! I read it years ago and still am freaked out by it!
