Book Review - The Leftovers

The LeftoversThe Leftovers by Tom Perrotta
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Very intriguing subject matter - an apparent "rapture" removes millions of people from the world in one fell swoop. How do those left behind cope?

Perrotta focuses on the residents of a small town; a woman who lost her husband and two small children and a family where two of the members become involved in post-rapture formed cults.

It's a great study on love, grief and human resiliency with some surprising twists. Perrotta did a great job of making the characters believable and making you invest in them emotionally.
