    "The horror genre has a huge selection of classic novels. There are older examples like Mary Shelley's Frankenstein or Bram Stoker's Dracula, but among the more recent examples is Stephen King's The Shining. Most people are more familiar with the film version, but the book is even better and much, much scarier!"

    "I have been through my fair share of horror books but one that really sticks out for me would have to be Frankenstein. It's just a classic and it has so much good stuff in there. There is no way you would hate it. I would recommend you check it out. It's a very good read."

    "Vintage King. Character development is so complete it gives this reader the feeling he is part of the story. A helpless voyeur, unable to do anything else but observe (almost like the character in "Autopsy: Room Four" from his collection, "Nightmares & Dreamscapes). Carrie's story is not only engaging, it is compelling and powerful. A young woman, possessed with unimaginable power in one of the most vulnerable times of a woman's life, struggles with the things in her life that makes her different. Her fragile ego is constantly being stressed by the ridicule she must endure and all the hateful things done to her. The story could not have ended better, though, of course, bittersweet on an incredibly horrible scale. (Incidentally, the movie with Sissy Spaceck and John Travolta is really quite good, and does not harm, whatsoever, to the book.) Of course I'd recommend buying this if you are looking for best horror and thriller books."

    "So I was looking for the best horror books of all time and I found out about an author named Dan Simmons, I liked the work he had so I bought Carrion Comfort. I loved the book, I read it all in one sitting and now I can't sleep."

    "I don't know if I would call this a horror book as much as a disturbing thriller. I prefer more overt Stephen King or House of Leaves psychological horror."

    "This novel scared me so much when I was a kid! I remember reading it, huddled under the covers in my bed, with a flashlight and the lights off. Some parts are very disturbing, in a fascinating and entertaining way, that doesn't let you put it down."

    "Great book and a welcome change from the sparkly pretty boy vampires that are all the rage today.No one is going to be making out with these blood suckers. This book is both refreshingly new and wonderfully old fashioned. Just make sure you read it with the lights on!"

    "I enjoyed the original version of this story and I think it was Stephan King's best work to date, or at least close to the top. This is a great story to tell concerning the demise of mankind at their own doing where a line is drawn between good and evil. This story being offered in the kindle version is a good idea as it brings exposure to a greater audience with the ease of convenience."

    "I find Stephen King to be one of the best horror and thriller books author we have, and "Misery" is no exception. As another one of his horrifying and entertaining masterpieces, it will sure keep the readers at the edge of their seats."

    "The Japanese are much better than Americans at analyzing internal feelings of existential dread. Murakami understands real horror, not the silly American nonsense."

    "Cujo is one of the very best books Stephen King has written, which is saying something. It's one that has aged well and still ranks among the best horror books of all time."
