Creepy Novels That Terrifies The Adults

You can find a moving, stunning creative experience in literature. You can also find complete horror that makes you feel utterly terrified. While they may not be the finest horror books, here are some of the creepy novels for adults.

Essential Tales And Poems

Essential Tales And Poems

Poe had a talent for bringing a sense of visceral dread to every piece of writing. His protagonists and narrators are frequently mentally ill and mad individuals who are plagued by either genuine ghosts or by the manifestations of their erroneous thought processes. Poe tapped into the universal fear that we all have that the world and the people around us are not what they appear, which is why tales like The Tell-Tale Heart and The Cask of Amontillado have endured more than a century and a half after their publication.

House Of Leaves: The Remastered Full-Color Edition

Danielewski creates a confusing narrative with multiple unreliable narrators, typographic mysteries, and looping footnotes that manages to draw the reader into the story and then cause them to doubt their own perception of that story, all from a fairly standard horror premise (a house is revealed to be slightly larger on the inside than is strictly possible).

Rosemary's Baby

Rosemary's Baby

The well-known surprise of the baby's parentage (hint: it's not her husband) doesn't give the tale of a young lady who falls pregnant after having a nightmare; instead, Rosemary endures growing solitude as her misgivings about everyone around her develop. A novel that will keep you up at night has so many intricately woven strands that connect into the dread, from the emotional and financial instability of a young marriage in trouble to the straightforward anxiety every mother feels for her kid.

The Haunting of Hill House

The haunted home is at the top of the list of horror fiction clichés; this trope is used so frequently that it usually becomes an accidental parody. However, Shirley Jackson was no ordinary author; she perfects the idea of the haunted home. Simply said, the finest haunted home story ever written is The Haunting of Hill House. The unreliable narrator of the novel, Eleanor, whose descent into madness is slow and agonizing, only begins after we've been lulled into a false sense of security by the seeming relatability of her early persona, is what gives us the claustrophobia. The scares come not only from the malevolent actions of a house that seems sentient and angry.

Lord Of The Flies

Lord Of The Flies

Hell is for children, according to a song by the wise man Pat Benatar. There is nothing magical going on, which makes Golding's tale of children abandoned on an island without supplies or adult supervision incredibly scary. Lord Of The Flies is about improperly socialized humanity sliding into savagery since that’s our inherent nature. The abyss in the middle of this book glances back when you look into it.

Conclusion

Literature can deliver a powerful, breathtaking creative experience and message. It can also be an absolute terror, by exposing us to situations and feelings that we could never experience in real life. Here are some of the most terrifying books that even adults find frightening, yet they may not be the best
