When I read the reviews for The Leftovers, I was sure it would be a perfect read-a-like for the hugely popular Left Behind series. Well, it is nothing like that at all. I can tell you this this much: a Rapture-like occurence takes place, leaving behind millions to wonder what has happened to their friends and loved ones. Not to mention what is going to happen to them. And there’s where it all turns strange – from a cult walking around in white doing nothing but smoking cigarettes to people turning on one another to a young woman thinking she is pregnant with the chosen one. Very odd book!
