"Rotters" might rot on my bookshelf versus "Every Day" which might be read someday.
I appreciate there are some missteps with this book. The premise is interesting and I think the possibility of having a discussion around "can we really separate our physical appearance from our inner character" could happen after reading this book. I agree that the author comes at this idea in a disjointed way but the main character is moving into a different body every day and so maybe disjointed is what the author hoped to achieve. I am unsure why some of the characters (i.e. Reverend Poole) existed in the book but at least I felt that even if the reader didn't love the book they likely would be willing to finish it to the end.
I didn't love either of these books but my vote goes to Every Day.
My Zombie pick is Between Shades of Gray (I won't belabour why I think this but will suggest people pick up the book and read it and make their own opinion).
