Why read it?

1 author picked Slowly We Rot as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

This isn’t a zombie book. It’s a book about isolation, depression, rage, and escapism. This is the book I continue to come back to and is always the first one I recommend for someone looking for a new book to read. There’s a slow ramping of violence in this book, married perfectly to the main character’s evolution – resulting in some truly bleak scenes.

From Elias' list on that make you feel uncomfortable.
