The Other

The Other - Thomas Tryon This is an astounding book. It takes a little effort to get in to the story (the author has some purply prose that gets in the way of the storytelling), but once you're in, you're in for good. It seems like an innocuous little story, but Tryon takes it in a nice direction, and unnerves the reader. It's a great example of atmospheric horror, where the scares come from the situations, not a lot of graphic depiction.
