        Except that it literally is. Even more so if you don't believe it is the Word of God.

        Besides, illiterates, he said "book" not literature (even though the Bible IS literature).

      Damn, good answer. But did this book turn to shit after the first half or did I lose interest? It reads like the author forgot about it for several years then wrote the second half with a completely different objective.

    I haven't read a lot of depressing books but Jude the Obscure was the most depressing I have read

      One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich.
      King Lear is a great answer, Othello also deserves a mention.
      For nonfiction, Tombstone by Yang Jisheng

      This book would be kinda comfy if not for the creepy baby.

    Not really a book but a graphic novel.
    Japanese lesbian spends 3 books trying to prove to herself, her parents and the reader that she's in fact actually a lesbian 100% no doubt about it while also lamenting about every aspect of life imaginable. Just basically misery porn but not fictional because it's autobiography

    My dad had me read Death Be Not Proud by John Gunther in 6th grade. The book is a memoir by a dad about his son who is dying of brain cancer in the 40's. This book made me cry so much.

    Supposedly The Blind Owl (which was legendary for inducing suicides, including that of the author) but I don't speak Farsi and the translation didn't really have that much of an impact on me

    This one was impactful because Gaddis Said everything I had to say and now I'm left with nothing

    These 3 unsettled me for some reason and I’ve had no issue with disturbing books. There was just an ominous foreboding depression lurking through them that bothered me for some strange reason
