The Leftovers by Tom Perrotta


perrotta, tom - the leftovers( thumbs_up ) This book isn’t an A, but it’s not a C either. I’d say it’s more like a B+.

Imagine one-third of the population disappearing without any explanation. And no, it’s not the rapture because the departed weren’t all believers or known to be especially good people. No one can explain why, but are only left with the aftermath of the missing.

Cults form with criminal underpinnings. Families break apart. But there is some hope and humanity left among those still on earth. This book follows the stories of multiple people, all intertwined by each other in some way. It’s not bad, so it’s no wonder it ended up having a television show made based off of it.
