The Slob: Summary

Read if you dare! This is not a test—it's a lethal invitation. "The Slob" by Aron Beauregard throws you into the twisted reality of Vera, a woman whose life revolves around an obsessive need for cleanliness. Vera's dark past has made her a neat freak, a character trait she hopes to cash in on by selling vacuum cleaners door-to-door. It seems like a harmless, even noble quest until she knocks on the most nightmarish door imaginable—the lair of The Slob. Imagine the embodiment of filth and depravity; you're still not even close. A monster of a man, The Slob holds a darkness so profound it makes hell seem like a vacation spot.

In a house that's the polar opposite of Vera's ideals—filled with unimaginable horrors and visceral tortures—she's dragged into a malevolent game of survival. But The Slob doesn’t play fair; he plays to maim, to torture, and to annihilate. So if you've got a stomach of steel and nerves of titanium, open the book. But be warned, the nightmare you’ll live through is the stuff even demons would shudder at.
