Book Review: The Leftovers by Tom Perrotta

The LeftoversThe Leftovers by Tom Perrotta

"That's why we get involved with other people, right? Not just for their bodies, but for everything else, too -- their dreams and their scars and their stories."

Interesting read. I appreciate that this "what if" of the end-times was not about hellfire and torment but more of what would happen if a unexplained event changed the course of your life. What if you lost your family? What if everyone lost their families? Would you be able to mourn or would you be expected to heal in time with the world?
