Eric Trump's taste in architectural aesthetics was questioned on Tuesday when he touted a building with his family's surname slapped on the facade as the "most beautiful building in the world."



It didn't take long for him to be relentlessly mocked for it.

Twitter users provided him with examples of monuments in the world that are more deserving of the accolade.



Others provided better examples worthy of the distinction as best in the world, like the Taj Mahal in India, or Mont Saint-Michel along the Normandy coast of France.

Classic and modern marvels were brought up in comparison.

Conceptually, this person had a different interpretation of beauty.

"Beautiful" was replaced with a more appropriate description:

Chicago is known to boast many architectural wonders, but the Trump Tower is not among the highest-rated.



Overall, the mirrored facade with the president's name didn't get high marks.

The 98-story skyscraper was designed by architect Adrian Smith of Skidmore, Owings and Merrill and construction was completed in 2009. It sits along the north side of the Chicago River, a block from the southern end of the Magnificent Mile.

While the reflected surfaces of the brushed stainless steel and clear anodized aluminum panels don't exactly make the structure a complete eyesore, the general consensus was certainly contrary to the mocked trustee of the Trump Organization.

There's no shortage of excellent horror fiction out there. Recently I read The Terror by Dan Simmons and can't remember the last time I felt that claustrophobic and nervous. But I am also a fan of quite a few classics. Are there any other horror books that capture grief as effectively as Stephen King's Pet Sematary? What other book evokes folk horror as beautifully as Thomas Tryon's Harvest Home? Let's not forget this wonderful classic: The Haunting of Hill House. I could rave about that one (and Shirley Jackson) for days. All of these books left their mark on me and yes, I'd include them on a list (if I were to make one) of some of the scariest books I've read.

People had their own opinions to share––and books to recommend––after Redditor Tylerisdumber asked the online community,

"What's the scariest book you've ever read?"
