Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro. I can't really describe it without spoiling the entire plot of the book. It starts out innocently enough, and then there's a twist pretty early on... It's just so disturbing and haunting. It's a beautiful book, but tragic. I am more than a little emotionally scarred after reading it.
it wasn't THAT disturbing, but Snakes and Earrings by Hitomi Kaneharai don't really read disturbing books though?ETA: i don't remember the title of this book, but my...senior year of high school i believe, while i was working in the library and had my hands on ALL TEH NEW GOODIEZ, i remember i read this book that you could consider disturbing: it was about this girl who got abducted by a child molester while she was at the zoo or something and she wasn't very far from where she had lived, but he threatened her the whole time that if she tried running away, he'd kill her family and that they didn't love her anymore and they had replaced her with another child. and i also specifically remember he would send her to get waxed in her nether regions when she hit puberty because he was disgusted that she was developing cause he liked them extra fresh. anyway, in the end the guy ends up getting killed by i don't remember who but it was in a park and i remember something about a police officer - i think he tried to help her. IT WAS REALLY GOOD. if anyone knows what the hell i'm talking about, let me know cause i'd like to read that book again.
It has to be 1984 or A Brave New World, just for the sheer oppressiveness of the worlds they are set in. And that, even now, it's possible to see what they got right. It's maybe not disturbing, but they were both deeply unsettling.
