What's the sickest, most disgusting horror novel you've ever read (and maybe weren't even able to finish)?

For me that would have to be Survivor by J.F. Gonzalez, I was able to finish it but there were times when I just had to put it down for awhile.

I have to second Survivor - It was the only book I ever had to stop reading for awhile and I had to make an effort to finish it.

I have to also say Survivor. I had to put ti down quite a few times, but it was kind of like a car crash and you just want to look some more.

No question: Wolves of the Calla by Stephen King, in particular the scene where the woman is sleepwalking through the swamp imagining she's at a banquet...give me a nice gory murder any day over that.

I  "4th" Survivor by J.F. Gonzalez  --- I love horror and zombies and senseless character killing... but this book was just gross. After I read it I had to get rid of it, it made me feel ickky to have it in my bedroom.

I think mine would be A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess.  Also, I checked out Survivor based on its notoriety here, and while usually when someone says "this is the sickest book ever!"  I immediately add it to my TBR pile, I read some reviews on amazon and I am not touching that book with a ten foot pole.  I'll read the most horrendous true crime books any day of the week, but a fiction account of such astounding grossness?  No thank you.

Survivor by far!!!   I second the baby part. This is one of my favorite books EVER!!!  But it is also the SICKEST book I've ever read!  It's on my keeper shelf but I'll never read it again.  This book completely shocked me (which is why I loved it so much).

Ok, after reading this I just had to add Survivor to my WL. If it takes too long, I think I may just have to buy it because now I am just too interested.

After reading this post, I decided that I just HAVE to read Survivor.  I bought it today on Amazon.com and absolutely CAN NOT WAIT to get it!
