For any of you who haven’t had the experience of reading about these beastly things first hand, we’ve pulled together an assortment of frightfully fabricated horrors for you to discover.
So here it goes — ten terrifying monsters found in literature and available for you to read in book torrent format.
1. Grendel, Beowulf, Ernest J. B. Kirtlan
A hairy, terrorizing giant that’s out for blood, Grendel is feared by all except the poem’s hero, Beowulf.
2. Giant squid, 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea, Jules Verne
As one of the story’s most memorable antagonists you’d think this aquatic tyrant would have a name. As it stands, he’s known as “giant squid” and does some serious damage to Captain Nemo’s vessel and crew.
3. The Monster, Frankenstein, Mary Shelley
True, the monster skews more sensitive and intelligent rather than terrorizing, his physical appearance is described as gruesome and that’s enough to make it on the list.
4. Mr. Edward Hyde, Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde, Robert Louis Stevenson
Dark, sinister and brutal best describe the psychotic Hyde. Hyde embarks on a violent and murderous adventure in Victorian London in this tale of split personality with shocking consequences.
5. Count Dracula, Dracula, Bram Stoker
Does this guy really need an introduction? Fanged and famous, he’s a Transylvanian bloodsucker that delivers a bite (literally) and turns Jonathan Harker’s life into a living hell.
6. Sandworms, Dune, Frank Herbert
Available for download on Audible.com with a 30-day trial.
Described as having mouths that are 262 feet in diameter with crystalline teeth and reaching more than 1,300 feet in length, these creatures not only look fearsome, but they are territorial and dangerous.
7. Medusa, Medusa, George Fleming
The face of a hideous woman with venomous snakes for hair, one look at Medusa and she could turn you to stone. A mythological monster that’s as scary as they come.
8. Wagner the Wehr-Wolf, George W. M. Reynolds
The bloodthirsty incarnation of wolf in this gothic tale reminds us what made werewolves so unnerving in the first place. Motivated by hunger with a craving for human flesh the werewolf in this story is a hair raiser.
9. Headless horseman, The Legend Of Sleepy Hollow, Washington Irving
A ghost on a mission, the spectre of the headless horseman is not something that you would want to encounter. Ever. Open to interpretation, the horseman appears to be a decapitated, vigilante that’s out on a mission of revenge.
10. Quasimodo, The Hunchback Of Notre Dame, Victor Hugo
Very similar to Frankenstein’s monster, Quasimodo is shunned and feared by all around him. Despite being ostracized from society he is able to remain mostly good. Sadly, being good isn’t enough to win the hearts and minds of those around him.
There you have it – a list of the top ten scariest monsters in classic literature. What are some of the creatures you’ve read about that have frightened you?
