Top 10 horror books
An extraordinary book, unlike anything else I’ve ever read, which had a big effect on me when I first read it. The narrator, Martin Gregory, starts out by telling us that he was perfectly normal and happy and that there was no reason for the terrible thing he has done … The sense of impending horror is enormous, and the book, like the narrator, soon spirals into madness. We have to try and work out what is really going on as we see everything through Gregory’s distorted perspective. One thing we can be sure of, though, is that everyone around him is in very great danger.
