The Leftovers

"What if -- woosh, right now, with no explanation -- a number of us simply vanished? Would we think it was the Rapture? Would some of us collapse? Would others of us go on, one foot in front of the other, as we did before the world turned upside down?"

This is what Tom Perrotta's novel The Leftovers aims at exploring. He looks at how a suburban community reacts and deals with the mysterious 'Sudden Departure' of neighbors, family members, and friends.

Perrotta's previously novels include Election and Little Children which have both been made into Hollywood movies. So, now is your chance. Read this book. Absorb it. Enjoy it.
Then when the movie comes out, you can be all smug and explain to people how much better the book is.
