Oh yes - that got me exactly the same way.  I sort of enjoyed Justine, and 
got to the end of that, but 120 days I barely got started.

The other book I wish I hadn't read is Dracula - I read this aged 12 or 
so, thinking I'd stop if it got scary, but by the time I got scared I was 
too far in and couldn't stop.  I can't remember details of the plot now, 
but even thinking enough to write this is starting my heart beating 
faster. I've never dared to try Sunshine in case it's similar, and avoid 
all horror now just in case.  (Thankfully no-one told me Neil Gaiman was 
considered horror until I'd read several of his books:-))
