Hey! Nice to meet you. I have a bit of the same problem. I tend to think a little too much about the topics sometimes leaving me with some anxiety :/.
I got about halfway into the book. Finally, I looked up from the book as I was reading it late one night in my bed and swore that any minute one of these grey creatures would come walking through my bedroom door. Or even worse, they would come through the window that was behind my bed. I had never read a book that scared me so bad (Stephen King's "It" was a close 2nd). In a fit of fear, I through the book across the room where it landed behind the closet door. It lay there for over 6 months before I picked the book up and promptly through it into the garbage.
I made the mistake of reading this alone in bed in an empty house over a period of 2 days - what a bonehead. It scared the bejeesus out of me. Every time the house creaked I was up like a shot with a baseball bat in my hands. Thanks Whitley, for depriving me of a good nights sleep. God knows when I'll ever be able to sleep peacefully again!
I read this book when I was 14, and it robbed me of approximately 3 years of sleep. I've tried to finish it 3 or 4 times, and have never succedded. I've passed it onto countless freinds, all of whom returned it to me, unfinished, scared to have it in the house with them.
