The list author says: "Here is a list of novels that are very disturbing and/or extremely violent. Keep in mind that I have a strong stomach, so it takes a lot to make me to get sick. Though all of these books have their own significance, I did my best to rank them in order of most disturbing and/or violent."
"Ranking in at number one, "Yeval" by C.W. Schultz. It's nice to see a story that actually portrays violence the way it is, ugly and merciless. There is no justification for the act of violence. The story itself is great, and the moral of its message is so deep that you'll find yourself rereading it and finding new things about it every time. Truly a fantastic book!"
"Number three, "Peaceable Kingdom" a collection of short-stories by Jack Ketchum. No, not a novel. But how does one descide which piece of Ketchum's work is more violent than another? Here, we have a collection of Ketchum's stories, a taste of what this great author is capable of writing. Enjoyable for fans, and also a great introduction for those who aren't familiar with his work."
"Number four, "Marabou Stork Nightmares" by Irvine Welsh. I can tolerate slang and thick dialect. I can also tolerate Irvine Welsh's wonderful style of writing. Maybe this book isn't for everybody. But if you don't mind violence, Scottish slang, and an unusual style of writing, then do yourself a favor and read this book."
"At number five, the classic "A Clockwork Orange". A tale of a future world's experimentation on brainwashing the criminals into feeling nauseated when viewing or thinking of committing crimes. Very chilling."
