Story is King #3: What Is The Scariest Book You Have Ever Read?

Halloween is coming in a few days and I’ve been thinking about the scariest book I have ever read.  I will admit that I’m not a huge horror reader and Halloween is not my favorite holiday. I do not look forward to being scared and getting any kind of thrill out of it.

However, I have watched both seasons of Stranger Things and read a few books over the years that scared me. There is a novel always comes to mind when I think about a story that gave me the chills.

Intensity by Dean Koontz is the scariest book I have ever read. Back in the mid 90s, I read a lot of Koontz’s novels and I have written about that on this blog.  The story of Chyna Shepherd trapped in a house with a serial killer, Edgler Vess scared the living daylights out of me.  Only the first Halloween Movie has frightened me more in a work of art.

If you have never read Intensity, please do.  I guarantee it will make you check every room in your house and make sure the deadbolt locks on the front and back doors are secure.
